* I WANT TO THANK YOU...*

Well, as I said in one of my replies to a comment in my most recent post.....
 
"Jeanie, thank you very much! After reading your encouraging words, I feel kind of foolish for being so upset over a part-time job that I'd had for less than a year. It did hit me hard, but here...only 2 days later, I'm feeling a lot better. When I do allow myself to think about it, I get my mind off of it as soon as possible. There's absolutely no sense in reliving it over and over in my head...Thank you so much. I'm so blessed to have some awesome blog friends!"
 
 
I want to thank you for giving me the best day(s) of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day(s) of my life 
 
 
 
AND, I reminded myself that I'm usually such a believer in inspirational quotes...
as I recently posted on my blog!

 And what about that sense of humor of mine?




 
 
And so, I already have other ideas floating around in my mind, some of which haven't even materialized enough yet for me to realize what they are! Are they about a job, or writing, or what? I'm feeling so much better and a great deal of that is because of all my fantastic blog friends.


As Bette Midler sang: You got to have friends
 
Thank you all so much!

  3. I scrolled down to see what had happened in your life since I last visited: I'm glad you've bounced back. I also cannot survive without my friends. Love the mascara humor. Keep us posted on whether you get another job. xx

  5. Never feel foolish about how you feel, Becky. Never. Things like that hurt and hurt deep. And yes, you bounce -- and look at you -- bouncing already! But the main thing is to honor the feelings you have or had. They're real and they're part of life -- and of you.

    Glad things are looking up!

  9. Sometimes a nice heartfelt blog comment is just the medicine we need. Your quotes are good ones--and very true. Except I don't worry about the mascara one.

  10. B-E B-O! ~
    So glad to hear you're feeling so much better. I knew you'd bounce back pretty soon. That "O!" exclamation in "Becky-O!" ain't there for nuttin'.

    Now, damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!

  11. It's good to hear you're feeling better, Becky. I'll bet you soon look back on quitting this job as one of the best things you ever did.

  12. Grieving a loss is okay and necessary. Even though you hadn't been at that job for long, it was important to you, and grieving the loss of it is part of how you will move on.

    Blessings,
    Patti

  13. Oh Becky I'm so glad I got to read that you are feeling better and healing from your experience at your previous job. I was getting caught up with your writing and feeling what you you were going through! It's awful to be at a job that brings you down. Hope today is bright and encouraging and gorgeous like you!!
