I know that a lot of you have probably been wondering where the HECK I've been - AGAIN!! I apologize for being MIA...
After getting back into town - once my work trip was cut short - I got really depressed. A few weeks ago I was given a letter, from my boss, saying that if I didn't clean up my act - I would be terminated. That just made things worse, honestly.
I love my job and I love what I do...the people I interact with are great. Management, however, is a different story. I just can't understand how people in senior-level positions get to where they are by being demeaning and just all-around terrible people. It doesn't make sense!!
Okay, so I've made a few mistakes - but who HASN'T at their jobs?! That is how we get better folks...by making mistakes! If you've never made a mistake...or if your boss thinks that everything you do is the right thing...then you need to take a serious look in the mirror!
Ever since I was a kid my parents have stressed the importance of a good education - which will lead to a good job. While this is true, I think that somewhere along the lines we forget that we - as people - are not defined by our professions.
I am not my job...even though I hold a job.
Come on everyone - say it with me...
I AM NOT MY JOB!!!
There...don't you feel better?!?!
I had to take a serious look in the mirror and keep repeating that over and over. I am not my job...I am not my job.
I am MORE than just my job description...I am MORE than a list of experiences on my resume...
I am also a loving wife...a caring mother...a daughter...a best friend...a God-fearing Catholic...a Republican (with a big R)...a hopeless romantic.
...but even more than that...I am ME! I am the culmination of everything AWESOME that is me. It goes beyond race, religion, political stance, job description, hair color, eye color...everything. In the end...I am a human...and humans make mistakes...it is our essence...it is what makes us...well...human!
By next month we shall see if I still have my job or not...but until then...I can only continue to be me!
