I’m still struggling with the changes that have been made where I work. I’m trying my best to work through it, to remain positive and continue to do my job. But oh my goodness, is it ever difficult! With the changes that have been made to my schedule, I am not given the time to actually do my job. And that stresses me out, knowing that the things that I’m supposed to be doing, the things in my job description, aren’t getting done…
Thank goodness for my writing! Honestly, that has become my saving grace. I work all day (or night, or mid-day…whatever…the schedule is different every day), come home feeling like I haven’t accomplished anything, but am able to sit down at the computer and write away my troubles. I can get wrapped up in my short stories, my book, or my blog and leave the stress of work behind. And for that, I am so grateful. My writing has managed to keep me from falling into a pit of depression, has given me hope that things will get better.
However, writing hasn’t been able to tell me if things are going to get better where I am, or if I’ll have to make a change in order to find some measure of happiness at work again. At least, my writing hasn’t told me that yet…maybe, if I delve deep enough, I’ll find even those answers in my writing…who knows?
