Strength thru change

We pick our battles
carefully sorting out the small from large
watching and listening
we gather together that which serves
and fills the soul with the best of things.
Kindness and compassion
so often unseen in this late everyday world
we look into another’s eyes
really seeing the essence of the soul within,
holding it gently
cradled like a newborn
for this body is new to our world,
new to our circle that increases as we wander
tribes of like minded thoughts patterned
we scoop up like fall leaves
creating a pile of laughing moments
as children we all dive in
scattering about after a days hard work,
we inhale the scent of change on the air
and become one with the transition
of a rising sun.
I cannot look behind
to see the pillars of salt standing
those who did not heed the teaching
left crying for themselves
never see into the mirror
the lack of reflection in a vampires smile,
we hold hands moving forward
creating our destiny
where love and peace and faith reign supreme,
we take the steps
toward the glory of the distant horizon.

I put in my notice at work yesterday. Never good with confrontation, expecting the worst but calm and professional I remained at all times. The weight that was lifted after speaking the words flooded over me like a beautiful gentle rain and I walked away with my head held high, after seeing yet again another example of downright nasty rude behavior from she who shall not be named. Two weeks and I’m flying free, happily not sacrificing my soul to the emotional vampire who holds high court over the aisles. Yay….freedom never felt so freeing. Don’t ever let anyone bully you and treat you like less than the amazing person you are. Don’t let ’em dim your light and keep on being the beautiful soul that you are. It’s funny, she never asked me why I’m leaving….perhaps she’s heard that tune before and has changed the channel.

Thanks Mags, enough was enough, and then she topped it with not only the icing on the cake but the whole buffet of reasons why it’s time…..feeling calm and happy, just biding my last two weeks now…and another girl put in her notice today too….one more has several applications out and when she gets another, she’s gone too….gonna be hard to replace 65 hrs a week….gonna need 3 new minions…..not my problem anymore…..I’m good with it. Peace and love and happy Saturday soon to be Sunday ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ’–

  3. Sometimes it takes a bit longer than I’d like,
    Feeling bad for others keeps my self in check
    Then too much becomes enough
    To set it free,
    Let it go,
    And move on to better moments waiting๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’œ
    Thanks so much LA,

  4. Good morning beautiful,
    Just got out of work a short bit ago…..
    Another girl put in her notice tonight,
    Yep, she’s gonna feel the heat
    I feel bad for people like that…
    But as the girls who work with me see,
    I’m too strong and have too many options
    To put up with that nastiness.
    Ah, I feel good but a part of me still feels a bit bad….
    I know, can’t get emotionally involved in these things….
    At least that’s what my boss told me
    About the “hurricane” that wasn’t coming….
    On a roll and moving forward,
    Loved your eye to eye post tonight,
    Haven’t gotten a chance to visit in depth
    And like it yet….
    Almost bed time….
    Eyes feel so very tired…
    Work again tomorrow then off 2 days.
    Good evening my friend,
    As me, always.


  5. A second employee put in her notice today….and another has several applications in elsewhere…perhaps I’m giving some young women strength and that it’s not a place that inspires anything except defeat and darkness….reasons and purposes….perhaps I’ve made a difference in young girls minds…strength will carry us higher than imagined. I pondered if anything would ever really change and knew in my heart it wouldn’t…..time to fly…..besides….when I told her about catching the elderly person in her faint, she told me point blank, she wouldn’t have tried to catch her….to let her fall….kind of sealed the deal. That’s just heartless in my eyes…….sad really.

    I agree with you on this …I had said this in one of my posts – ‘Don’t let anything touch you more than it serves you’ …it is a powerful choice to make. wish you the best coming your way!
