Suck it up

This is going to be kind of a therapy session for myself.

An interview today was not what I thought it was going to be, but I found a suitable replacement. After putting in a few hours of overtime already this week, I was looking to the interview for the suitable replacement in the coming weeks.

They are only in the area this weekend.

I am stressed out and really was looking forward to a weekend without anything. Now I have an interview and chores and choreography to do on Sunday.

Not what I would call a weekend without nothing.

I am a big complainer, and honestly I feel like crying right now I am so stressed out. I just wanted to rejuve, and that does not seem possible.

But instead of giving in to frustrated feelings, I have to look on the bright side. I'm glad this happened on a weekend that I was here and didn't have plans. I have a job, and I can say that I am definitely putting my all into my work. I am not the only person that has to do extra work when they don't want to.

The other weekend my dad ended up working the entire weekend, giving him two weeks straight of work without a break. And those are 12 hour days. I only work 8-10 hour days.

I don't want to work this weekend, but I have to suck it up. Jobs are not perfect, because life isn't perfect. At least I have an entire weekend to get my chores done, and the interview is at 10 a.m. tomorrow so I will have the rest of the day to get something done.

Satan can't beat me. God has blessed me with so many things in my life, and I can take this one minor inconvenience in exchange for a supportive job, loving friends, health, a close family and an air-conditioned apartment. I have so much to be thankful for, and I can suck it up to deal with one stupid inconvenience of something I want to do.

At least I called my suitable backup tonight instead of putting it off for Monday! Then I would have big problems.

  1. Heavenly Father,
    Would you please bless Kiley with small pleasures this weekend. Would you help her work schedule to go smoothly and that she would accomplish more in less time than she could even hope for. Let her feel your presence and your blessings all around her. Please give her the rest and balance that she needs. I thank you that she knows and loves you. In Jesus name I ask these things, Amen.
