Our community in Boston lost a beautiful young soul this week. My family is gutted and praying for this very young lady and her family.
Why am I sharing this here? Because, selfishly, these tragedies act as reminders to keep things in perspective. And I felt compelled to share that reminder with my friends here on Jobcase. We were born into this world to love. to care about others. to help. Yes we have built on top of this our own constructs of wealth, and vocation career, etc. But if you have healthy loved ones around you during the holidays - you are rich indeed.
So as we rush to get projects done, budgets met, careers on track. As we try to balance the rush of holiday pressures as they meet year-end pressures. As we deal with shortcomings of expectations on reflection or trepidation about tasks that lie ahead. Please remember to ENJOY the real joy of the holidays. Appreciate the real treasures in your life - your healthy loved ones as they gather together. And remember the rest of the pressures is just noise in the end. Keep it in perspective. Squeeze those kids tight. Enjoy all your loved ones. And really let yourself enjoy the love that is here in this season - despite any man-made pressures. (and if you can, please also remember in your prayers those families that cant enjoy that richness this season because of loss or health challenges they face).
All the best... #Perspective
i work in my previus job for 20 years and my present job i ben in there for 8 years
I worked on my job for 35yr, and on May 2019 after working all day, my B.D. was the next day, I thought they was going to surprise me with a gift or something, they did, they said we are laying you off, ( I did not see that coming) , I started from bottom up, and work hard to make Manager/Supervisor, I been trying to find work since. It is a hard road, hang in there all the best way you can, if you know in your heart that you tried to do the right thing, we are human mistakes will happen, even when you say to yourself really, NO, REALLY. Try to stay strong, sometimes, bad things happen to good people, but goodness is better then bad things. Be Blessed
Everything over for me
We forget to see the beaty around us. As I daily walk up my sidewalk I've been noticing how diligently red ants work together to take down these very very tiny pieces of leafes. We should be so caring. As I wake up each day I want and love sharing even just to say good morning or I like your dress.
My condolences to your community for your loss. You are absolutely right about recognizing our priorities and the need for us to put our humanity first above the materialistic.
It is my hope that those suffering from this loss this holiday season know that their loved one continues on and is immortal through the stories they share and the memories they hold.
Death is cruel in that it is the living who feel the grief, sorrow, and the void in a space once filled by life, love, light and warmth. I hope they take comfort in knowing that thought the warmth has expired, the light never will.
