I'm thankful for my family. I would like to thank Job case for working trying to help me to get a descent job. Thank you Jobcase.
Can we all commit to spending this week doing 1 small act of kindness each day? It could be as simple as waving someone into a lane of traffic, connecting with a barrista and saying thank you by name, - just show some human compassion for one another.
I think this isn't just a nicety - I think it may be profoundly important right now. I confess I turned off the news this wknd. I strive to stay away from the extremism of our political debate these days. I mean, I embrace politics of advocating for workers (I don't see it as left-versus-right issue, I see it as right-versus-wrong, all people can support workers). But, since I help operate a platform built for everyone, I tend to stay away from politics beyond this advocacy. But this weekend I couldn't even watch. I turned off the news this wknd because I weep for the Kurdish mommies and daddies losing their children, for Hevrin who is pulled from her own car, and wince at the thought of a video some misguided group produced which fictionally shows our president violently assaulting his domestic opponents. It all seems too much and leaves me feeling so helpless to change any of it.
But then, I started thinking about Ringo Starr of the Beatles.
Ringo Starr tweets out #PeaceAndLove all the time. It sounds like an echo from another era, and something quaint or even corny. But maybe it's not. Maybe it's the one thing each of us can do. And then I start thinking: Ya know what- he's right. Why is "LOVE" not a national dialogue? Yup - it sounds hokey, yup it sounds idealistic I get it. But it's also what life is about right? So why not put it front and center? So heres what I think. Small acts of kindness is something we all can do today. You and I can't impact national security decisions today and can't stop misguided people from trying to trigger extreme negativity today. But we can start to change the national mood.. today. We can be more tolerant of people around us. We can be kinder to those around us. We can be more helpful to people around us. And maybe, just maybe, act by act, we can change this national mood to a more positive footing. And if that groundswell fails, then at least we help someone else's mood be more positive for a bit in the day -- and, ya know what? I'll take that as a victory too! join me?
I am so sorry that I have been out of the loop lately. Since January I have been hospitalized 2 times both times staying at least 3 days or more, ugh..... I have asthma and allergies that were adult onset after having my one and only child. Prior to that I was athletic, competing in many sports throughout my childhood and early adulthood. I still remained very active even after being diagnosed because I love the outdoors and I love being active. It keeps my mind from racing all the time. I just wanted to take a moment to let our community know that I am so grateful to be a part of it and I get inspired on a daily basis to better myself and keep pushing to reach the stars. I know that I am still here for a reason because I have been able to learn and grow from my past mistakes, and GOD knows I probably could have died 10 times over by now, so I am still standing and fighting, stronger than I have ever been searching for my purpose in this life. I know I have one I am just trying to pinpoint it at the moment. My personal life, like that of many others, has been a long and hard battle that makes me who I am today. I have suffered, cried, fallen and gotten right back up every time just brushing off the dirt or mending the wound. I have also experienced the greatest joys, laughed, loved and been loved unconditionally, and that I am forever grateful for. I LOVE MY LIFE...EVERY BATTLE AND VICTORY! I can not express it enough how lucky I am to have been accepted by this community. EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU ROCK, AND FOR THAT I THANK YOU! Please accept my apology for not being as active in the past months but also know that I have still been along in heart and soul. Thanks again!❤❤❤

I just wanted to state that I wish this forum would have existed back in the 1990's as I constantly had to deal with layoffs, relocations and putting my life on hold, as I have found this forum to offer excellent opinions and insights from the community. The past is the past, and for anybody that is struggling like I had, there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and to merely concentrate on the present and the future. I request for those that respond, to not include anything with religion and just base everything on your previous experiences. Thank you.
I have never been this long without a job! 5 months and it has been trying!!! For all you jobcasers out there frustrated and pulling your hair out! My only advice is to stay on jobcase best sight to be on. I can't tell you how much community has helped me. Keep asking questions and someone in the realm of your scope of work will give you the answer your looking for. This is my favorite site of all times!!! Love you Jobcase!!!
I am very happy. "I got a job and I wish God success and be at the good of the officials
My company’s policy on sick days is easy - if you are sick, stay home and get better. Pay doesn’t change. Unfortunately this is not the case for most. In fact, for millions of Americans getting sick physically can lead to exacerbate financial woes very quickly.
I’m thinking about this as we all focus on Covid-19 approaching. This article captures it pretty well.
Support for health isn’t always about insurance- it can be about job security and income consistency for simple care. Does your employer ‘get it’? If so who? We would like to support and celebrate good acting employers. https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2020/02/coronavirus-could-hit-american-workers-especially-hard/607213/
