Recently I have changed jobs and I have begun to notice things here that are not balanced at this job. For the past two Saturdays, I’ve had to work mandatory overtime. The first time wasn’t so bad as I left early but this second time around. I left at ten at night, taking me an hour to get home.
I barely had any sleep just to wake up at four in the morning to get ready to leave by five to get there by six. So to put it plainly, I wasn’t happy about it. In a world where people are starting to realize that sleep is important, I still don’t get why others don’t see that.
Then again not every one is the same, what one person can do someone else can’t do the same. It has been an interesting experience so far but for however long I will be at this job. I am grateful for my brother driving me to and from but there is concern with the lack of sleep that accidents might happen one day. It’s not matter of if but when although I don’t want anything like that to happen.
This job is very rigged but I had decided that I will do my overtime during the weekday and merely experience myself when it comes to this six am to two pm shifts on Saturday.
I have left a job of seven years for a different experience altogether. The first couple of days was a bit rough as I’ve never worked at a warehouse but even with that I pushed through it. I know with every job you have all kinds of people but I have decided that each day that I am there to observe and work. I am playing it by ear each day that passes. I am much more aware of myself than I have been in the past.
With certain jobs, an emotions arise saying, “Yes, I can see myself there for years.” I don’t have that emotion with this job and it has happened in the past but in those days I choose to ignore it and think its my imagination. I am learning to honor that since then and learn what I can from each of those experiences.
Mischievous creatures taking tools or having people bruised themselves after long hours at work with machinery. Yet this wasn’t always so at one time they helped mankind with there work but when man became selfish taking all the credit for the work. Those once benevolent creatures became mischievous and sour towards mankind.
Daily Prompt: Gremlins
What is mercy? Can it only given from the rich looking down at the poor. Only given when the world is watching for the greatest of impacts. No anything given with expectation attached is not given from the heart. Nest deep within each of us is the ability to have mercy on our fellow man as we watch reflections ourselves go through the sludge of thoughts forms. Particularly of those who don’t wish to let go of the past and cling to it beyond the bleeding point of their fingers until their only bare bone is showing.
