Staying in the Present
Friday, February 26, 2010
Lately, I have been wallowing in self pity. My new job didn't work out & I can't draw unemployment. I don't know what to do- apply for teaching positions or look for something else. I still fret over losing the job I had. School librarian jobs are hard to find around here.
Being back in the classroom is not pleasant, That's why I got my Masters in Library & Information Science, to get out of the classroom.
I've never cared for the, "It could be worse" line.
But, the local paper has been covering a trial & the victim has gone through the most horrible thing that could happen to a mother. It is such a tragedy.
So many people deal with painful situations.
Reading about it makes me so aware of the things I take for granted.
My situation isn't what I had hoped, but it is shameful to feel sorry for myself when I have so many blessings.
My goal is to be in the present- stop dwelling on the past & fearing the future.
