Reasons why I should enjoy my job

14368905_563705627169645_8493449225522911358_nHello Wonderful Reader,

I am having the Sunday/Monday blues here. It’s 11:12 pm and I am not looking forward to the next day. I have vowed so many times during HARD TIMES that I would never complain about idiotic, trivial things such as traffic, or a job. BUT, here I am!! In a humble effort I am going to try to shift my perspective by listing the reasons why I am grateful for my job.

 

  1. I start at 6:00 am (by choice) and get off at 2:30 pm, which is earlier than most people.
  2. I can use my headphones at work.
  3. We have a Keurig machine at work (free coffee).
  4. My boss is working remotely and only comes 1 week out of the month.
  5. I have my own big cubicle, that is isolated from all others cubicles (except the fact the GM has tunnel vision to mine).
  6. I take 40 minutes lunches (instead of 30 minutes).
  7. I get to run my own meeting every week (which I dread but it is good practice to get out of my comfort zone).
  8. I get along with a couple of girls at work.
  9. It is generally a relaxed environment.
  10. My office is less than 20 people.
  11. We kinda don’t have a dress code.
  12. I GET PAID.

 

WEIGHT OF THE WORLD 2

Needless to say, and in ALL honesty, I have been burdened by the WEIGHT OF THE WORLD. I have been carrying atrocities and injustices that I have no idea how to even begin fathoming on my shoulders and blaming myself for being human or my apathy. That is why the messages below resonated with so much. My birthday was on the July 29th and this message was preached the next day on a Sunday. I really needed to hear this. I wanna let go. I have a lot on my mind and a lot to unravel in my soul. TBD.

Weight of the World

Minute: 18:30 to 20:20

“You’re pressure is trying to point to something. So many in my life the reason that I was under pressure is because I was full of pride. He said, “We have this power, this treasure in earthen vessels”, or vessels of clay. An ordinary vessel and it’s an extra ordinary power. And so I am an ordinary person with an extra ordinary promise of the presence of God. But sometimes I get confused and I forget that I am just the pot, I am not the power. And sometimes I get so burdened because I put  the weight of the world on my shoulders and carry a cross that I am not strong to carry, that has already been carried for me. So I am under pressure sometimes because I am full of pride. And sometimes not all the time, pressure comes into your life not because of what you’re handling but because of how you’re handling it: you forgot your source (Jesus) and you lose strength. Pressure, pressure sometimes points to pride in your life“.
