My time at work is coming to an end

“The time has come,’ the Walrus said, To talk of many things:  Of shoes — and ships — and sealing-wax — Of cabbages — and kings — And why the sea is boiling hot — And whether pigs have wings.'” [Lewis Carroll]

10527259_10152671891737819_2331870584082052695_nIn 6 weeks I shall say goodbye to the job I have owned for 10 years and what a job it has been.  It’s had its ups and downs -the ups were the first 8 years, the downs the last 2.  Being owned by Global Company Pepsico, I thought it would be an advantage but it turns out that being global means following all the rules and regulations of a company who’s head office is in a “war zone”. The amount of courses we had to do for bomb threats, floods, fire and anti bribery was ridiculous.  Reading the PEPSICO VALUES on the wall at reception every morning was a joke – care for customer, consumers and the world, (they forgot about their own staff).

No, I’m not bitter because I’ve been employed for 10 long years and made some great friends and realistically it is time for a change.  Time to get out there and find a job that suits me and my capabilities.  Time to do a course I’ve been dying to do and time to look after myself after so many years of looking after the men in that office.

10384353_711653925590561_4862710292393211672_nFear of the unknown is hardest to deal with.  I’m positive I will find a job, that’s never been an issue but when you finish up at Christmas time when everyone has closed down and when you want to start looking, usually this is the time of year when everyone is looking for work – patience is what I need (anyone got any spare or can you teach me?)  Never been a patient person but hey!  My latest mantra is




And you can’t fault that!  Everything will be OK (oh and I end up with a nice redundancy package, something I didn’t get from my last job because I was classed as a casual).  Funny that, I lose my previous job after 8 years and then get it offered back to me four months later.  Funny how the world works isn’t it?

Let me know what your MANTRAs are?

I am having the best time of my life. I'm 50 plus, divorced, two grown children and just the opportunity to have a life after so many years of scrimping and saving is well worth the time it took to get here. I have a fantastic family with great family values and spending time alone is certainly something I enjoy which a lot of people find difficult to handle. I was born and raised in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia and cannot imagine living anywhere else. Strangely I don't like to travel and have no plans to do that in the future - I say strangely because so many people can't understand this, wanting to travel and experience other cultures - not on my agenda. I love to write and writing romance keeps me from going completely mad. I have found a job that I absolutely love and there are times it affords me time to type out my stories since I write all my stories by hand - I'm never without a pen or book. My motto is ... "People may forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel" I've had many people who I can't even remember their names tell me that I made them feel good and for that I am truly grateful. I have become an avid reader of Rhonda Byrne's 'THE SECRET', "THE POWER" & now 'THE MAGIC". Whether you believe or think it's a load of @#$!@ - I do know that it works for me and my life and I am all the better for it. The Law of Attraction is something very close to my heart and I can honestly say with certainty that it works for me. I am truly grateful for the life I have been given and continue to enjoy. You can't go wrong when you just learn to say "thank you".

    Good luck with finding something new. I have been in my job for 10 years and we had change of management. Wishing you lots of patience and all the best!

    Thank you – patience has never been my strong suit, however, I’m looking at the whole thing in a different perspective than I did when I lost my last job. I have six weeks to go and then I’m on “holidays” is what I’m calling it. I will take a month to regroup, buy “grown up clothes” and step up my routines and by doing this at the end I WILL have a job that I can claim as my own. It’s looking up already.
