A Monday Moan

I hate hate hate being told to work hard and then when I work hard it all fizzles out and I sit with nothing to do. 

Right now I am talking about work.  I drag my ass in to work on a rainy Monday morning after an extra long birthday weekend and I am told there is no work for me to do.  It frustrates me to no end.  The disorganization.  The lack of fore thought of how they are going to keep their employees busy through the weeks if they push them to do overtime for one week and then the work fizzles out and there is nothing left to do.  You want to pay me to sit here and type a blog post?  Fine.  But for fucks sake don't come and ask me to do over time next week because you couldn't get your shit together.

If I am asked to push hard through a yoga class, I'll do it.  I make up my mind before class that I am going to work hard, I get through class and then relax in Savasana at the end.  When I am expected to come to work on Monday morning, I try so hard to make up my mind that it will be a good day and go and do my job even though sometimes I want to rip my hair out.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that when I commit to something, be it a yoga class, a job, a relationship or a lunch date, I commit 100%.  No matter how much I may not want to be there or not want to deal with a situation, I am there for me or for you because I said I would be.

I really wish people, companies, bosses, friends would show me the same respect I try to show them.

I'm not saying I'm perfect, far from it.  But I try.  And I just wish more people would try!

I was reading this when you called and am very happy to see that you are writing again.
I agree you deserve the same respect you give everyone in your life.
P.S. I bet there is at least a few people that think you are perfect.

One thing you wrote reminded me of this song:

It's a rainy Tuesday here in New York... Thanks for trying!
