It Has Been A Year

Ever been told you are too passionate?

Not in a romantic sense but just care too much about something or can be vocal about an issue or a hobby?

I have. I am passionate about my job. I care whether something is done right. I care about my job. Co-workers said that I needed to be less passionate about my job. Just to get what needs to be done, done and let it go.

It will be tough. I don’t have the don’t care attitude of many of my co-workers. It is hard to let go. Why be passionate and care when it gets me no where at all with the company?

I have had a killer migraine for a few days, which includes ear aches and non-stop buzzing. Gah! I get so tired of it. I feel like I need to be stretched on a medieval stretching machine and then maybe my tired self will feel better.

I have to take care of myself.

Plus this week makes it a year since Mom died. She died on March 2, 2012. I miss her so much. Plus with the snow, getting down to the National Cemetery is pointless since the graves are flat and probably snow covered. I feel guilty for not visiting. I did not even get down at Christmas.

It is going to be a tough few days.


  1. I'm sorry - I know the anniversary of your mom's death must be so hard for you. Don't feel guilty about not visiting the grave site. I like to think that we carry the memories of our loved ones in our hearts and those memories come with us every where we go. Hugs.

  2. Jen, I'm sorry this is such a tough time. I know how tough anniversaries like this can be, and I'll be thinking about you.

    I like to do things right on the job, too, and I've been where you are, feeling like what's the use. But I think it's in the nature of some of us to just want to do a good job--to do it right. That's important in and of itself.

    I hope your headache clears up soon!

  3. That one year mark is always tough...your blogger fmaily is here for you and sending positive thoughts yuor way.

  4. Hugs to you. That's a rough anniversary!

    As for passionate...you continue to be passionate...to deny that side of your nature that wants to do everything correctly is to deny who you are!

  5. I'm sorry. I know that's a hard anniversary to get through. Thinking of you!

  6. I know this must be such a difficult time for you.....anniversary's are so difficult, and none more than the first one. You are in my thoughts and prayers.


I love your comments!
