Celebrate the Small Things
Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly bloghop now hosted by Lexa Cain. The idea is to post anything you want to celebrate from the last week, no matter how small.
- I'm celebrating something huge this week; I've finally stepped down at work! I was a section leader but I've stepped down to just a normal colleague, which means less hours, actually knowing when I'm going to finish my shifts, and much much less stress. I've done three shifts as a normal colleague so far and I'm loving it; I can just go in, do my job and leave. It's great not having to worry about work all of the time.
- My Halloween stories did well; my Spooktoberfest entry was one of the winners, and my WEP piece got an Encouragement award. I'm very happy with that; these are the first pieces of writing I've done in a long time. There'll be a lot more to come now that I've stepped down!
Sometimes it's easier to be just one of the workers. Glad you are enjoying it again.
Good for you! I have someone in my family in a similar position. I think they would be happier if they could step down from some of their responsibilities at work as well.ReplyDelete
Wahoo! You're a winner! But we already knew that. ;)ReplyDelete
I'm so glad you stepped down. It takes courage to make a move like that, but I applaud you for doing it. I'm hoping the coming weeks/months bring you much more peace.
Well done on the writing. Sounds like you've done really well.ReplyDelete
And deciding to step down at work was probably a tricky choice to make but sometimes it's nice to have a little less responsibility and less pressure so you can focus on other things. :-)
Congratulations on all those things, Laura. I"m glad you'll be happier and less stressed at work and your writing is doing well. Hope you have a fun weekend.ReplyDelete
Good for you, Laura, we can all do with less stress. I'm glad you are enjoying your job again and the extra writing time will be welcome I'm sure. Congrats on your October writing success too.ReplyDelete
That's fabulous! I'm so excited for you! You're going to be so much less stressed and that means enjoying your life more, which is priceless. Yay for your Halloween stories! Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
Great news on the writing front and deciding to take a step down with your job so that you can pursue your dream is to be congratulated. Well done you :)ReplyDelete
