A Sliver of Time ..

Thinking about my life and eternity

I wonder why bother

Does it really matter how I live my life,

Or much effort I make?

It is all over in a blink

Thank you justmeonline

Yes .. I am starting to feel anxious now and don't start duty for another four hours!!

I wasn't but I feel happier today .. thank you Princess

Yes .. I know I am lucky to have a job.<br />
<br />
Trouble is employers tell us that now and they get away with more as they know how fearful we are of losing our income.

I told my son that life has its "shoveling s**t days" get on with it because very soon those with jobs will be a minority

Thank you zorbas <BR><BR>Your comment was the one I most needed to hear

You know , you are very much right in saying that it passes in a bl<x>ink, but you are wrong that it all doesn't matter. <br />
I am not a religious man nor do I really believe in a hereafter but I do know that after a life time of making businesses work, people employed, their families raised in security. I know I was put here for whatever purpose although I may never know. However, some one''slife was made better because I was here.<br />
<br />
You must believe that you too are something of value and do not doubt that you are here also to be of benefit to you or anyone in contact with you.<br />
<br />
Do get a sense of your own self worth and throw away any self pity. The realities of life are simple no will care if you exist unless you first have enough self esteem and sense of worth to love your self first.<br />
<br />
Get with and push on even in for only a bl<x>ink of a second.

Thank you OMGMeToo <br />

I shall try to stay a few months at least

I agree with NancyDrew-- if you write out a plan, ie: "I will give my notice on 9-1-09" Then you will be better able to endure the ride. But you've got to eith go right now and keep looking, or, make yourself stay for a number on months so it won't look wierd on your resume.

Yes, quite!<br />
<br />
And annoying is also bothering!!

I am most worried about making a mistake as the staff shortage is very dangerous

Do you 'hate' it there but need the job? If that's the case, and I have been where your at, "grit your teeth and bare it" as my Mother would still say. Lay the foundations for escape. It helps the day to day grind if you have an exit plan no matter how far out in the future it may have to be.

Um .. I have only been there 3 weeks

I know. I saw your other post. Twice in my life I have left 10 plus years careers. Both with excellent results.<br />
I struggle with the grass isn't any greener thing. I try to look at it now as the grass may not be any greener, but I feel better and as a result do better on new turf.

Hmmm ... I am talking about employers

Admitting mistakes is at the core of being free. <br />

You can't waste someone else's time. You can waste your own time, but 'their' time is 'their' time to waste.

I used to be interested in Paulo Coelho but I read all his books and would not read another now .. he is just rehashing the same .. <BR><BR>Yes life is eternal .. that is why I am bothered ..<BR><BR>I am trying to stop making more big mistakes ..

"We are travelers on a cosmic journey,stardust,swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share.This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity."<br />
— Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist)

No matter what your leaving, it's difficult to leave. We drop bits and pieces of ourselves all over our living. It mingles with and becomes a part of what we are leaving. It isn't easy to leave such chunks of ourselves behind.

Thank you Nancy, that is just what I want to do <br />
<br />
And guess what I HAVE to do ..<br />
<br />
Dont know why I am stalling so much ... <br />
<br />

Grab the joy, ditch the baggage!!!! (I would love to be able to live life this way, I try but my baggage weighs a ton.) ((((((((hugs))))))
