Open heart

Today was a rather good day, actually. Despite it being a Monday, and despite being a work day. Very strange, I know! I spent some time this weekend searching and applying for jobs online (instead of blogging, sorry) and now, since I'm taking action, I feel much better.

Of course the position change hasn't been announced yet. That's tomorrow. So we'll see if I still feel pretty good after all of that. It's on the agenda almost first thing, so the impact will happen quickly, which is good. Favorite co-worker guessed part of what's going to happen to her. I confirmed it but didn't actually TELL her. Can I get in trouble for that?

I tried to keep my heart open, like we did while meditating in the yoga class. It worked! I actually laughed with Bosszila twice today over the antics of a client. The big boss was back from an awesome business trip with wonderful stories to tell. It was a very good day. Who would have guessed? Hope you all had a great day, too. Thanks for all of the support. That has made me feel much better about everything. It's going to be all right.

I'm also starting a new exercise routine besides the yoga. Daily, I'm going to:

01) Beat around the bush

02) Jump to conclusions

03) Climb the walls

04) Swallow my pride

05) Pass the buck

06) Throw my weight around

07) Drag my heels

08) Push my luck

09) Make mountains out of molehills

10) Hit the nail on the head

11) Wade through paperwork

12) Bend over backwards

13) Jump on the bandwagon

14) Balance the books

15) Run around in circles

16) Eat crow

17) Toot my own horn

18) Climb the ladder of success

19) Pull out all the stops

20) Add fuel to the fire

21) Open a can of worms

22) Put my foot in my mouth

23) Start the ball rolling

24) Go over the edge

25) Pick up the pieces

Whew! That's a workout! After all of that, I'll sit down and

26) Exercise caution.

Yes, it's from my E-mail, of course. Then maybe I'll go and help Vegetable Man with his non-smoking program! :)

I'll be thinking of you tomorrow...remember when something like this happens, it's not really about you (as strange as that sounds, given that you're being shafted) but only about the person who instigated it---their smallness and short-sightedness, their ability to take the sleazy way out, not your performance.

I totally understand. I am in the process of losing my job right now too and trying to remember that it isn't ALL that I am. :)

A job is just a job. It's good that you are taking a mature position in your life.
You rock..

I am not sure wheather you can get in trouble by telling your friend her impending doom. But I am sure your boss has shared private information about employees to one another and is going to do it again in the morning. That is a private matter and is confidential information not to be broadcast. I think she should be in trouble. Whatever the situation was between you and her and your job performance was just between you and her. She should never speak to an employee under her supervision about another employee.
You need a new boss...keep looking.

The only way I'd be laughing with that boss lady would be while thinking about pushing her down a flight of stairs. Maybe yoga would do me well.
