drawing the line
Monday, May 16, 2011
There is a fine line between work and home. And more often then not I find myself over stepping that line. when I am home I bring work with me and when I am at work I bring home with me. it finally hit me this weekend when I was anxious over a mistake I made at work all weekend long. I am tired of being viewed as a vulnerable person who can be easily manipulated with a threat. I need to have a back bone. I need to remind myself constantly that although a job is vital the verbal abuse is not. What is the worst thing that can happen? I get fired.
But is getting fired going to ruin my life? No...it will undoubtedly set me back...but it will not ruin my life. I work to be able to provide and care for my family. but that doesn't mean that I have to revolve my entire world around the job.
Life is funny and complicated. But that is what makes life, life. If it was easy then no one would make mistakes or be unhappy. What is important to me is my family. We are making ends meet, eating, and we have our health. We don't have everything on our wish list. but we are happy.
I am tired of allowing my work day define my mood. I am taking charge back over my life. I am ready for the challenge.
The challenge you ask?
is to be happy.
and I am getting there one step at a time.
