Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.
William Shakespeare born, 26 April 1564; died 23 April 1616.
"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages."
It is the season of love...Valentines day right around the corner. As I write this I think, shouldn't we think of love more often than the days leading up to February 14th?
When baby girl was little, maybe about 10, she discovered Shakespeare. She was enamored by his writing, and the quest for his books and writing ensued. I think she still likes Shakespeare, but it's been a while since I've heard her quote. None the less, it seemed like a good topic for "Something Good Monday", and the two quotes seem timely for my current circumstances. Dark days still loom, but I am trying to hold onto my own heart and the truth and struggle to find the joy factor no matter how small.
This week I could very well lose my livelihood. Along with my health insurance, and work that I've poured my heart and soul into for the last six years...I have made a choice to not trust the system, I have seen how it worked out for others, soulless and her HR "sister", as she always calls her, have dealt the devils hand so many times before as I bore witness. I remember feeling helpless, as if there were nothing I could do, I needed my job, I remember just thinking if I hung in there, I would find another position to transfer to out from underneath her evil grasp. It's funny, for lack of a better word, I probably need my job now more than ever, considering my medical position, and the fact that AH still hasn't found a job...but there is a resolve I feel, almost peace, as I said to the evil HR minion during the last interview for the alleged "investigation", I have no agenda, only that what I was about to say needed to be said. I had started January 1st with two words, "Joy" and "Reckoning" that's what I said 2010 would be.
Be careful what you ask for...
The wrong, terribly wrong things I walked away from so many times justifying it as not my business have caught up and turned to me. I have watched soulless and her sister treat all the issues that have arose in the last six years concerning employees as there own little personal drama game. A game of ego, and empowering themselves as "god-like." They hold peoples livelihoods in their hands and therefore their lives, and so far they have gotten away with this sadistic game of "mother may I", and only if you meet the criteria do you get to keep your place.
I know this is kind of heavy for my "Something Good Monday" item, but it is good. No matter what the outcome for me this week, the something good will be that I speak the truth. Maybe I'll be sent packing, but I will still speak the truth. Hopefully the truth will set me free...
