Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful worldas it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will;That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with HimForever in the next.Amen.
I've read this prayer so many times but never has it had such meaning to me as it does today. I finally understand it. I think this prayer was made specifically for people that work in the corporate world such as myself. I wonder how much "cow dung" I have to eat before I say enough is enough.
Silly me, I used to say I didnt want the hassle that came with working for myself but as I've matured I realized that this is the way Im wired. I wasnt made to be submissive. Im not into this 9 to 5 type job. Im constantly straining against the chains that shackle me. Sometimes I think so much about certain incidents that I have to caution myself because I think Im about hemorrhage...seriously. I always think that Im over thinking so much so that my brain cant handle it and so I try to relax.
I was with my uncle the other day. My uncle is visiting from Nigeria on vacation. Well what do you know...while he's on vacation he receives a phone call from his job that he's being retired. Can you imagine that? So you wait for him to go on vacation and then you call him to tell him that? I complained to my mom about it. She said it's good he got a phone call. She said others just see their name on TV or in the Papers and find out they have no job. As a matter of fact, years ago, one of my aunts was out representing the company in a meeting when she was "retired". She came back...briefed the Director of the company of what was happening...she had even been handed another assignment. It was while she was out on that 2nd assignment that she was informed. Infact they wouldnt even let her return to the office.
The problem here is these people relied on their 9 to 5 for too long. I wonder what my uncle is going to do now. Financially he has no problems but all he's done is work for this company. This is the only line of business he knows. He's not so so old but at his age, starting with another company will prove a bit difficult. I can only pray that he'll be okay. My aunt started some sort of consulting business years ago and she seems to be doing fine. The point is...you need your own thing. It is not enough to rely on your regular job. And in my state where you can be fired for no reason at all... it's only God sha.
See me now...what is stoppin me from walking out of my job...The bills that come in every month that I'm obligaged to pay, that's what. Fortunate or unfortunately I dont have a Sugar Daddy. Maybe I should go get one but you know Im not trying to put up anything...just friendship and platonic companionship you know... :-). Anyone interested? Since I've been on this reality show tip...we have Big Brother...maybe we should have Sugar Daddy/ Sugar Mommy abi? Infact I think I'll call CBS. So until I figure out what Im going to do, I have to committ the Serenity Prayer to memory and meditate on it every day to keep my sanity and prevent my brain from exploding. That would be very messy
**seems ppl would really like to participate in some sort of Blogger Reality... Any ideas anyone on what to do...which one...how it would work? Im trying to work on it...actually I pushed the idea onto someone else to work on it...I trust he will come up with something**
