A Libra, stuck at a fork in the road

399079727_644c98db85_o

I have a job which I like, but do not love.
Growing up I hated math.
Now that’s a big part of what I do all day.
My job is very solitary.
I am a people person.
Growing up I wanted to be a nurse, a vet. I am neither.
I like to help people, make them smile and make a difference.
I don’t feel that I am doing any of these things currently.
I have found a job that I know I’d be good at.
The job involves conducting fitness tests, and assessments, scheduling facility programs and staff, design, develop and deliver social/recreational programs to the elderly and disabled.
This I know would come with its own challenges.
I love to learn
This job requires continuous learning, to the well-being of others and myself,
My job  requires neither.
This job would require being on call, weekend and night work.
The girls are getting older and don’t need me around as much as they used to.
I work Monday to Friday 830 – 3 most days.
The pay would be around the same.
I would eventually have full benefits and job security.
I have neither now.
At the end of the day I think I would happier.
Now I come home most days feeling taken advantage of,underappreciated and defeated.
I have a funny feeling as I tap at the keys on my keyboard that I am answering my own questions…..

I am a Libra, who can be very indecisive weighing things back and forth back and forth while standing still in the middle unable to move.
I have been down the hall from deaths door twice and there is a great potential to be there again, I have learned to appreciate all that’s around me and to appreciate each day, to be happy, I find myself often unable to feel this way.
I treat others with kindness and respect and expect and deserve the same.
I need to make some changes in the best interests of my family and myself.
Life is too short and too precious to be wasted, it was not my time to go through that dark door not just once but twice, why am I wasting this gift?

Promise yourself

Happiness

“Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”

A Blue Monday meme

Today is Blue Monday

blue monday

The idea behind Blue Monday is based on six factors such as weather (W), debt (d), time since Christmas (T), time since failing our new year’s resolutions (Q), low motivational levels (M) and feeling a need to take action (Na).

It was calculated that most of these events would come into play by the third week of the month.

It was actually a gimmick for a travel company back in 2005.

Here is your Monday Meme

If you were home alone in the middle of the night,
and you heard a fart
Would you laugh or be scared?

ok maybe this is a little immature and in poor taste but others have used the “f” word and immature content…:D

I hope this silly meme has put a smile on your face and made your blue Monday a little smile ier.
