Happy Friday!

{{Deleted most of the post as well as a few others}}

All of this has me really pondering what truly makes me happy, what MY needs are, recalling happy moments of my past. Aside from happy recollections of motherhood, friends and family, I can't help but recall my sense of wonder whenever I was fortunate enough to travel, see new places, faces and learn more about the world we live in....I really felt alive! Learning and experiencing new things are a BIG part of who I am. I am sensitive, giving, friendly, creative, joyous, sometimes naive, ever hopeful for the good in people, situations and life in general.

Anyway, one of my happier moments was experiencing Milan, Italy, for the most part, on my own in a foreign country for a few days. I stayed at the Four Seasons and spent a lot of my time wandering around the neighborhood, as well as inside of Il Duomo. So beautiful!

That's not to say I am only happy when carefree and footloose. I cherish many memories of overcoming many, many struggles & obstacles, and feel a real sense of accomplishment from hard work, etc.

Hi there... I really have been meaning to call you back so we chat about all this. I'm sorry that time has gotten away from me.

It sounds to me like all the power has gone to your managers' heads. 3 minutes late? Was it from the same day you were written up, or a previous day?

On another note, I'm quiting BR today, so its really reassuring and refreshing to read that article you posted. I know I'm doing the right thing for myself...

You quit today??? Do you have something else lined up or will you be okay without the extra income for the moment? You have always made wise decisions for yourself though, so I'm sure you are doing the right thing!

Yes, I was written up the day of being 3 minutes late. She was very cold to me the entire day Thursday after I arrived and told her I was so sorry but that I was 3 minutes late. She waited until the very last moment in the day to go down and document it with HR and then came back to have a 'talk' with me. And she came in only for about an hour late in the day on Friday, thankfully.
