Well I knew I was going to have to face this sooner or later. Money is tight these days and it looks like my plans haven't worked out the way I'd hoped for. I could lose my apartment, my camera, my monitors, and who knows what else.
So do I admitt that I made a mistake by leaving the airport? Did I fail? In my heart the only way I can trully fail is if I give up on the company. I'm the owner as well as the employee and as the employee I really hope my boss will stick it out. I've had many impossible situations come up in many of my units at the airport and one thing held constant: I always did what I had to do to make the shift work. I did it then and I intend to do it now.
My currant job isn't offering the money that I need to live on, so I went looking for another gig and I found two. So with any luck I'll be starting two new jobs this month, one for mornings, the other for nights. It'll be exausting but if this is the grunt work I need to do for now then so be it, I'll find a way.
It makes sense though, in management some days you walk through the units delegating but rarely doing any actual labor, other days you're scrubbing toilets and washing dishes, I'm chalking this current situation up to one of those labor intensive days.
Last night as I laid in bed I thought about all the stuff I should have been thinking about on thanksgiving, what am thankful for? I'm thankful for all of my friends, I'm thankful for every relationship I've ever had, even more so for the friendships that grew out of them. I'm thankful for my bed, it's much more comfortable than my last one which gave me a bunch of back pain on a nightly basis. I'm even thankful for the old bed because it was a gift from one of my best friends who didn't want me to sleep on my recliner (the only thing I had to sleep on at the time). I'm thankful for the gal I'm seeing now, she's sweet and wonderful and I enjoy every moment I spend with her. I'm also thankful that I haven't jumped headfirst into this relationship, it feels weird to me to take things slow, or slower than I usually do in these matters. Is this that growing up thing I've heard so much about?
Well I need to hop in the shower and get scrubbin if I'm going to make it to work on time. Hope you all have a great day, if you get a chance try and take a look at all the baby steps you have taken over the past year, I find it's the best way to find true thanks for what we have.
Till next time Party People,
Keep on a chooglin!
