Today has been a weird day. My day started with my boss calling to make sure I would be in (of course I would!) & telling me that one of our employees had passed away. Someone in his 30’s. Its really crazy. & its hard for me to deal with quite honestly. Since October I’ve been to 3 funerals. The one that’s hit me the hardest was my boss John. He was a great mentor to me, looked out for me & overall gave me security in a somewhat insecure job. Not only am I sad & upset about him but everything at my job is different. & my job is not just a job to me. It is definitely a family. But so not the same anymore. Plus my job is somewhat seasonal (hockey season) & I’m hourly so I really worry about money lately. But I think I did have a stroke of serendipity (maybe that’s the right word; it seems like it should be). I was at work & all worried about everything & then I came home to a milege check. The check was actually really overdue (like 6 months!) but it came at just the right time. I felt a little bit better. I spent sometime catching up on my Tivo’ed shows & once again Jeff Probst helped me by showing me some positive & inspiring stories (I really wish his show didn’t get cancelled). Then I got some upsetting news from a friend. Its just these kinds of things that make me question the world. I try to seek & share happiness wherever I can but I get a little disheartened sometimes.
