My usual days off are Friday and Sunday but once a month I get a long weekend of Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I am so glad it fell this weekend because I sure need it. I was so angry with my boss yesterday that I wanted to quit. My only reason for staying yesterday is I have a super supportive group of co-workers. (And the never end supply of candy that the general manager provides. She rocks!)
Some days I really don't like my job. Other days I am thankful for a job where I get to be off at 4:30 everyday. I like the actual work but my heart is not in it 100%. My heart is in working for a non-profit organization such as ALS or MS Society. My ideal job would be working with physically or mentally challenged adults through Independent Living. I am not saying my job is not gratifying because a lot of days it is. I just want to go home every night and know that I am making a difference.
Ya know...as I write this I am beginning to think I need to get back to taking the steps to reach my goal. I had an employment counselor working for me back in May and she told me that if I needed anything to give her a call. Maybe she knew me well enough (Myers Briggs-ESFP) that I would not be really happy with where I was at. At any rate I am going to e mail her tonight before bed and see what I can do.

oy! it's been a long while since I've last talked to you - thank you so much for staying in touch although I've been HORRIBLE at keeping in touch myself. I haven't read all your entries but will. I do want to say that I can relate to what you're saying. I have a special needs sister and two special needs children. A friend of a friend was just diagnosed with MS yesterday. CAN YOU IMAGINE? You think you need a root canal and boom! You're losing your sight within a matter of hours and learn you have lesions on your brain. I too have a soft spot for working special needs people, however, I feel as if my heart just couldn't take it. It truly does take a special kind of person to do that kind of work. Just remember, you're where you're at right now for a reason. EVERYTHING happens for a reason and whatever job you're in, neighborhood you live in etc., is not an accident. It will lead to many great things and you'll know hon when to make a move into another direction. Keep on dreaming, b/c life isn't worth living if you can't dream. Dreams are meant to be acted on - eventually, you WILL do what you need to do to get to where you wanna go. I can tell already. Thank you for the tip on my blog in regards to my situation, I'm SO doing that now but it's good to have that re-enforcement to confirm things for me. Talk to you soon and hang in there. Know that people are pulling for you - hugs hon, Nikki

I totally agree with Nikki. Everything happens for a reason, even my separation, as I feel so much freer emotionally and mentally more stimulated than I have in a long time. That's why I started my Chocolate Kisses blog. To accentuate all of the positive things in my life. Taking even the smallest step in the journey to what you want to do will help. Even just thinking that you are, will help your focus. Keep smiling, you are in my prayers each day. Love and hugs, Joe.

I know what it is to work where you do not like and are not wanted. So, here is some encouragement to get off you behind and get out there and find a job that you want to do.

Now if I could just find something to keep me from going crazy...........
