Good that comes from the bad.
Thursday, November 18, 2010
So it's been a crazy few weeks recently. I haven't been on here much, partly because my computer was KIA for awhile, and the later because I wasn't feeling very good about myself. To be honest I'm not sure I would have pulled out of it all on my own, but luckily an off handed comment from my boss made my day. I had to be at work (in the middle of my sleeping time) for a meeting. When I ran in to my boss, she asked if I've lost weight. When I said I've been working on it she was really encouraging. It was nice to hear this from someone I don't spend a lot of time with. Aside from making me feel better it got me thinking about everything that has been going wrong with my life recently, and how it has actually led to good things.
Ok, so currently I don't have a Car... which to be completely honest SUCKS, I knew I was dependant on it, but you never realize quite how much until its not there....
So Bad = No Car --> leads to --> Good things (healthier choices)
1) walking down to meet my ride to work (its not far but its still more than I was doing)
2) no chance to just go buy junk food, so I'm cooking more and for me cooking means healthier food.
3) walking to the store when I need one or two things, instead of wasting the gas and driving 6 blocks (yes I was/am lazy) although I miss it in the rain
So all in all I guess there are some good things that come out of the bad. I'm still losing weight and have picked up a few more good habits.
The other frustrating thing I've been dealing with is trying to get a new/better job back in Portland. I miss seeing my nephew, and I want a chance to actually advance in my career, not be at the bottom of the pile for the rest of my life.
So Bad = job rejection --> leads to good --> working out more
I've been spending more time working out and or cooking because I get too frustrated to just sit still. I'm tired of every job I apply for at the hospitals tell me that I need more experience...how can I get experience in a hospital when no body is willing to give me a chance? Ugh! It's ridiculous. So far the Tally is 30 applied for and 20 rejections... definitely makes you feel a bit crappy.
