I don’t want nor do I need another J.O.B

Standard
I don’t want nor do I need another J.O.B

To be divine is to be whole. To be whole is to be complete, the evil and the good.

As my layoff from my 2 years of working in auto insurance nears (I will not disclose the company’s name at this time…cause I’m still working until this layoff, cause I want to ensure my severance pay is direct deposit.) I have come to a conclusion that I would rather jump off a 50 story building while holding a gun to my head, while I plummet to a solid concrete ground with giant chards of glass surrounded by under fed, starved, violent and ferocious lions waiting close by to eat my mangled body; rather than get another J.O.B.

Seriously.  No joke. Yep.  Cause to me going back will be the death of my freedom to express creatively. It would be the death of the spirit.  And plus I want to be sure to get the job done.  Ha!  I was one of the fortunate but unfortunate individuals to get caught up with customer service rep and sales rep on their resume.

Those who work customer service now or sales or collections can relate.  It’s a vicious cycle of employment to break. With these J.O.Bs it’s a gruesome duty to be polite and apologetic all day to everyone. .. Including assholes. What job is complete without those assholes?! Excuse my choice of words but I’m not sorry for saying it. I surely DO NOT APOLOGIZE.

Not to mention that it’s always a haggle and hassle to constantly watch the clock. And with me, being the person that I am, punctuality is my enemy. Then on top of that there are the countless technical difficulties that could not be explained. Then customers would constantly try countless ways to receive free or pay less for coverage. Then I also I deal with clueless agents whose job you have to do as well. BLAH….BLAH…BLAH…BLAH…AND SOME MORE BLAH…

I don’t even want to write all that to be honest.

But back to the point of me writing this. *Sigh* I recall a very good friend of mine told me the acronym of J.O.B. The real meaning of it. My friend is now deceased for the past 4 years but I still hear his voice like he’s right next me. The acronym of JOB is just over broke.

JUST-OVER-BROKE.

That really resonated with me until this day as you’re reading this. As I reminisce my days of employment and also my days of unemployment from corporate I’ve come to feel my best unemployed. Yea I may not have a bi weekly income, but my outside expenses are not as great. It’s funny how we invest so many hours for a mediocre, sometimes grueling wage, and once we are paid we are too tired to enjoy it or we have many expenditures that must be paid.

I’M WORKING TO JUST GO TO WORK. Great.

This is not how I envisioned my life as a child.

I really have aspirations and dreams of becoming better and doing more. I have inspirations of becoming well off financially until I will be able to help and make others around me financially secure. Because with me working on someone else’s time is really limiting my income dramatically.

Plus, I enjoy the thought of me being completely free from someone else clock. I desire to enjoy every hour, minute and second of the day doing what I love to do freely and contribute something back to society at the same time.

I see others do it every day. I know I have the ability to accomplish that as well.

It’s not that I don’t like my co-workers…because I do. They’re great people. I just don’t enjoy the confinement and redundant tasks.

This is How I see myself…but with a bottle of Jack Daniels whiskey in one hand and bag of weed in the other. HA HA HAaaa! (Don’t Judge me).

Girl-in-Field-With-Arms-SpreadAnyways…Aside from my long-term life goals. I just wish to live my life to the fullest with the talent I have been given. I wish to live my life. Not to just survive. I wish to be divine. To be divine is to be complete. The evil and the good.

Don’t Stress the Stress

Don’t Stress the Stress

To be divine is to be whole.  To be whole is to be both good and evil.  What some call the yin and the yang. Life is not always on the up and up. There’s always a down moment.  I don’t care who you are what you do where you’re from who you know or who knows you.  We all have been there. .. Still may be there. Hopefully, we pick ourselves back up and don’t stay down.  For recent example (may his spirit be free and at peace), great artist and comedian. .. Robin Williams.  He brought so much joy to the world around him but could not completely enjoy it.  It was something seriously stressing him. There are also those individuals who inflict bodily harm not only on themselves but others as well. So what is the definition of stress?

stress
Google defines it as:

Stress
noun
1.pressure or tension exerted on a material object.
The degree of pressure exerted on a material object measured in units of force per unit area.
2. a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances. “he’s obviously under a lot of stress”
synonyms: strain, pressure, (nervous) tension, worry, anxiety, trouble, difficulty; informal hassle
“he’s under a lot of stress”
something that causes mental strain.
plural noun: stresses
“the stresses and strains of public life”
3. particular emphasis or importance.
“he has started to lay greater stress on the government’s role in industry”images1
There is much meaning to the word stress.
However, I will only speak of mental health as well as physical and spiritual.
Stress is not all bad.  After all, some things of importance should cause a little motivational stress. We should stress the importance of ensuring our well being in relation to knowing how to self maintain and if there are loved ones, the care of them as well.
There’s also the placing of priority of financial stance. Are you an adult that can maintain and budget your money? There’s being physically attuned in relation to diet and exercise. How do you feel physically right now at this moment?   Emotional and social as is having healthy relationships that will help you maintain as you progress. How is the relationship between you and others?  How well and do you get along?
And most importantly spirit.  If you were to die today would you close your eyes with happy memories?
Yes, stress can kill in more ways than one.

My request to you is to sit back and look at your world. Look at those who surround you, the position you’re in at work or just in general. What would you like to be improved or different?  We can’t control everything. No.  But we can control self. How do we look at things? How we respond to people and situations instead of just reacting? Our perspective to what we see things as is, is what we cause stress to.
How do you see your life?
Better yet, how would you like to see it as? And to get there is your current method working?

stressed1 This Stress Reduction Kit may or may not help….

Well, don’t stress the stress.  There are many ways to cope.  Just Google stress and do your research. Go to counseling.  Express it with someone you trust. This site is a great place to start: http://www.helpguide.org/mental/stress_signs.htm

Recognition is vital and action to improve is required. Life is a journey. We live and we learn. All things must grow or die. Sun rises and sun sets. Nothing is permanent. No one is perfect, no matter their exterior appearance.

We are all divine beings. The good and the evil.  The yin and the yang.
