Lessons I've Learned...

Well, it has been a crazy few months. I moved up in my job and that reeked havoc on my home, my blog, and pretty much every aspect of my life. I have learned a hard lesson and that is that I should stay home more and focus more on my family.

I initially took a job outside of my home so that I could interact with others a little bit each week. I could have conversations with adults and I could get to know the locals in my new community.

I have learned that going to work so that I may have more sanity kind of backfired. I ended up dealing with others' neuroses and not dealing with my own! Every job I've had seems to have those that like to cause a commotion whether there be one or not. As I've gotten older I realize that I could change jobs, but the same "type" of person will still be there. I try to do my best and there will always be those that will try to bring me down. They aren't happy people on the inside. They relish in others' failures and are jealous of others' success.

I just want to scream out, "Focus on yourself and leave me out of it."

I think I will go back to dealing with my own crazy life and working a bit less.

Wow, I totally know what you mean. Some people seem to think that any success anyone else has somehow detracts from their own success. But in the gospel, it's clear that Heavenly Father is a God of abundance and he's no respector of persons. I just wish people would stop the competing and comparing and judging and we would just encourage and uplift one another and be genuinely happy for one another's successes. We'd all be a lot happier. Sorry for writing a novel! I just feel really passionately about that subject. :)

I am glad you are back to your blog. Sorry about the people at work're right though, there are always people everywhere who want to cause a ruckus.

I know what you mean.I don't have a traveling job anymore- but I do work more than I am supposed to. Lance is always asking "why do you work so much??" Orignally I was supposed to work part time. 20 hours a week or so, but that changed really fast. I average 36, uh last I checked that is considered full time. It is tough- I work crazy hours, and not able to do what I want. (uh, which is basically cook and clean..Ihave no life. HA HA) I can't say no, they need me....being a pushover is the BANE of my existence. :) Hope you are doing better and at home more..

Miss ya,
