And I Am Done

My temporary job is finished and I am soooo glad.  It was fun while it lasted and my coworkers were great but the stress on my middle-aged mind...ayayay.  And then today I noticed one of my bosses wasn't looking so great, I figured she was tired as she works her regular full time job plus about 50 hours a week at this job, and I found out that she has leukemia and has been fighting it for two years and is currently going through treatment (as a single mother with three kids and a 90 hour work week!!).  Needless to say I was shocked, saddened, and amazed by her attitude (she is always happy, upbeat, and positive).  My attitude can often use an adjustment and her example made me realize that a lot of things I complain about are really minor in the grand scheme of life.  That was probably the most valuable insight of the entire past six weeks!


  1. Congratulations! You did it! Wow, just looking at that room empty is overwhelming. I can't imagine what it must be like filled with people and busy-ness. So sorry about your co-worker. Sometimes happy and upbeat people surprise us when we discover the personal battles they're dealing with, yet they manage to put their best self out to the world. Yes, it helps put things in perspective, for sure.

    1. That's it exactly! And when the room is full there are about 5000 people there!

  2. Thanks for sharing. We all could use attitude adjustments now and then. I hope life improves for her.
