Peace and Bravery
Thursday, March 19, 2015
I am feeling a bit down with our work situation still. The big cheese is here and he mentioned to me that he has answers for the factory workers. I don't imagine they have much longer before they are laid off. It is so sad when people leave not only because these are friendships we have forged throughout the years, but it is also my job to remove the security into the computer systems for them. That makes me think I will be around for a while, but I still wish I could find something that I think will last till me retirement. Being over 50 isn't easy to land that job, but I at least feel confident that I have a lot of knowledge and will be an asset. I will Survive! I will continue to fight to be positive!
On another note, my strength exercises have been going good for three weeks. I do believe I have pulled a muscle in my chest and need to lay off that one exercise for the time being. I am also getting the cardio in as planned. I feel better having made some goals and fulfilling them. It is my plan to keep building throughout the year. So far so good. I hope you are also making the changes you want.
"There are so many ways to be brave in this world. Sometimes bravery involves laying down your life for something bigger than yourself, or for someone else. Sometimes it involves giving up everything you have ever known, or everyone you have ever loved, for the sake of something Greater. But sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it is nothing more than gritting your teeth through pain, and the work of every day, the slow walk toward a better life. That is the sort of bravery I must have now." ―Veronica Roth
