Horrible Bosses, An anniversary And A Birthday

Last Update: April 03, 2018

Hi Everyone,

It's been quite a while since I have written a post and this one won't be earth-shattering. It is just me getting the scrambled thoughts out of my head!

The last several weeks have NOT been great for me, I have new bosses at work and without going into too much detail, let me say, it's been less than pleasant. This has sapped ALL of my energy and ALL of my motivation. As a result I have not managed to get many WA tasks done!!

UPSIDE!! I am slowly realising that the only way to escape the horrible bosses, is to succeed here at WA. So my motivation is returning and I am slowly getting on track again.


As we approached the Easter weekend things took a turn for the better. On Thursday 29th March it was my Mum and Dad's 60th wedding anniversary and I would like to pay tribute to them for achieving such an incredible milestone. My sister and I, traveled down the coast to where they live and spent 2 days with them, had a lovely lunch with them and spent some quality time. It was great.

LESSON LEARNT!! Things don't always come easy, being successful takes a lot of hard work and patience. If you really want something you have to be committed and work on it EVERY day, never give up.


Finally, today is my birthday!! I went to work this morning quite happy and with the intention of having lunch with my sister and dinner with my kids, YES it was all about me. Then at 10am the phone rang and they had taken my daughter to hospital by ambulance ( she will be fine ), so I sat at the hospital all day, ran home for quick dinner of pizza with my sons, then back to the hospital for the evening, PHEW!!

MOMENT OF CLARITY!! There is NOTHING more important than family.


That includes the WA family, you have all been my sanity these last few weeks, my little escape each evening. Many thanks to you ALL.

Jenny

Hi Jenny!

First off, Happy Birthday!

Sorry to hear about your setbacks the past few weeks. Certainly, those sort of situations do motivate us to achieve the things we desire in our lives to improve things.

Hi Howard, thanks for the birthday wishes LOVELY.
At the hospital today there was a lady in the bed next to my daughter she was so very sick and in an enormous amount of pain and can't be cured! I suddenly realised I have nothing to be upset about, bosses will come and go, my daughter is healthy and going home and lots of lovely birthday wishes from family and friends and beautiful WA people. LIGHT BULB MOMENT.
Have a great day.
Jenny

Hi Jenny

You can’t do it all at once and you can’t be everywhere at any one time.

Take some time to think about yourself, even if you just stop for two minutes and focus on your breathing. Make the point of stopping - it’s your life.

Think about the small steps you need to take to achieve your goals at WA.

You’ve just written a wonderful blog. Decide on another small task you can do tomorrow and build your confidence up slowly, tiny steps!

Just a few words of support, many of us can appreciate the day you had, I’m sure.

Happy Birthday!
