I quit

Today I Handed out my resignation letter at work.

I have been at the same job for over 5 years, and I believe it was more than time for me to move on. It was a very big company with only dollar signs instead of the heart. I loved the team I work with, but the company is crap, no recognition for nothing, give give give and nothing back in return. I just couldn't do it anymore, it is one of the reason why my anxieties are so intense. I had to think about myself and a job offer fell from the sky and I could not refuse it.

My last day will be July 16th.

I am confident that my decision was the best thing I could do for myself, I love the new place and the people already. I cant wait to get started and face the new challenges ahead.

Monday Mentra June 28th

This week I work only 2 days and my blogger friend Carrie is going over for a couple of days.
I believe you guys will like my 5 o'clock post
I'm addicted to feeling good.
I wish to have no panic attacks while Carrie is here and enjoy every minute.
I'm jealous of people than don't have trouble saying it is over.

Skype

Are any of you on Skype?

I just installed it and wondered if lots of people use it and like it.

So do you use it?
Any good or bad experiences on it?
Is it user friendly?

Second reward

This week was my second week of reward, although I had some difficult moments, I believe I deserve it again :)

I went out to go get the little yellow dress but once I had it on I realized my boobs did not fill out the top part :(

Instead I got this nice shirt


This little top


And another pair of sandals



I am also trying to find another pair of jeans, but it seems that the only thing out there are skinny jeans, which I don't really like.

Earthquake

It's been all over the news and everyone has been talking about it, so I decided to talk about it too.
The earth has shaken today in Montreal, the strength was 5.7 and it was scary.
I was on the phone with a customer and from the 9th story of our building I felt the floor and walls move. Not a good feeling.

No damage was made and we had no after shocks, so all is good.

Have you felt an earthquake before?

Emotions

My emotions, good or bad, control my life completely.

I have no control over them and I live them physically. Today was a great day filled with emotions, emotions so strong that I actually started to feel ill. It was not the first time and I know it wont be the last one either.

I don't mind living my emotions, and I know life is filled with up's and down's, but what ever way it goes I always end up feeling ill. I know it is all in my head.

I know I've talked about this before and if you follow you also know that I am getting help, but I just felt the need to write about it. I know being an emotional person is part of who I am and no matter how hard I try to change that it will not go away, so I will not try to change who I am but I want to change the way I see things. I want to live my emotions to their fullest and feel perfectly fine physically.

Do you have any tricks to control emotional peaks (good or bad) when they happen?

Storm chasers

On my way to my parents place today the weather was kind of indecisive.
I was sunny and hot, but you could see certain big black could far away.So there I was driving on the highway wind in my hair, music cranked up and all was good. Until this weird black truck passed me.

When it got to my level I saw on the side of the truck: Storm chasers association. Instantly I looked back up at the clouds. They were still there and black. The truck slowed down, I then got a bit concerned as I am scared shitless of thunder showers. In a fraction of a second the rain was pouring down on me and I could barely see the road in front of me; when I looked into my rear-view mirror the truck had taken an exit and stopped.

There we were me and my paranoia on the highway thinking this is it, if the storm chaser did not pursue his road this mean I am going strait into hell. I am going to experience the worst storm of my life, yet maybe even a tornado. My heart was racing like hell, I had trouble swallowing and my knees were weak...until I realized the rain had stopped and the sun was back.

It was just a big bad cloud, but as I continue my road I kept on looking in my rear-view mirror and wondered why did the storm chaser stop and what was he expecting to see?

I had never seen a storm chaser, besides from in movies and honestly I got scared a little, because usually in movies if you see them something bad always happened. Maybe I've watched too many 'weather' movies.

Have you ever seen a storm chaser? Does it make you wonder why they are around?

My Superhero

My Dad is my superhero, he has always been and will always be.

I love him so much! He is the best!

Are we alone?


Today at lunch I stumble upon a National Geographic magazine, the title was: Are we alone?
The universe is huge and our sun is one star among billions. This means that there could be millions of planets just like ours with life. I believe that it is impossible we are the only intelligence out there.

Do you think we are alone?

Little yellow dress

Ever since the weekend I have been thinking about this little yellow dress that I saw.
I know I have to wait till the next reward moment to go get it and it is driving me crazy.

I could go buy it right away because it wasn't very expensive, but if I start buying things when ever I want the reward wont mean anything anymore.

I am not a dress girl and I usually don't like yellow stuff.
Is it just because I cant have it right away that I want it so bad?
Or do I really love it?

What would you do? Do you have anything yellow in your closets?

The need to talk

I always have the need to talk and I believe it is a flaw of mine and I don’t know how to correct it.

Let me give you a couple of examples:

-I get into work and people ask me how my weekend was I could limit myself to say it was fine or relax, but no here I go giving all the details.
-I have a doctor’s appointment. I could keep it to myself, yet everybody knows and then when they ask how it went, I can not say ok I have to again give details.

I do the exact same thing in every area of my life and it is not good. I am a complete open book, I have nothing to hide, but I should keep certain things to myself.
If you ask me to talk about myself to get to know me, within 2 hours of the conversation you will probably know some deep secrets of mine.

I don’t know how to stop and this is part of my therapy.

Do you have any suggestions?

PS I need to talk about my Summer giveaway dont foreget about it ;)

Little bits of sunshine

Today was a great day.
I saw little bits of sunshine all through the day.

Last 2 weeks I have been listening to a new cd that goes against all I ever liked.
It is a French Quebec CD, I never liked any Quebec music before, I hated it so much that it is even in my profile.
Until two weeks ago when I saw this singer/songwriter, William Deslauriers, on the news talking about his first CD. I don't know what pushed me to go buy it but I did. I am completely in love with the CD, I feel music for the first time in me, I connects to me and it makes me smile so much. I take it in the car and take it out of the car to listen to it at home. I can't get enough of this feeling that grows inside of me when I listen to it.

I also learned today that by the end of the month my best friend is moving back to town. I am so happy it brings tears to my eyes. She means the world to me.

I also had something happened to me after work, that I can not talk about for now, that wasn't expected and it just make me think in a positive way.

I found parking at my sisters house (which never happens) and I saw my sister (which doesn't happen very often either). I am so happy I reconnected with her like we were years ago.

I have only one work day left and I am off on a 2 day fishing trip, YAY!

And on top of that this week is pay week I will reward myself!

So lasts guy is Ryan Reynolds. We was born in Vancouver, Canada. He is the youngest of four brothers. HE was engaged for a couple of year to Alanis Morissette, but they called it off. Years later he married Scarlett Johansson.

Public texting phones

These days I have been seeing the weirdest things ever.
Here is one of them, a public phone from which you can now text.


Now I don't know if it's me that doesn't go out enough or if they are just coming out with any crazy idea they can think of, but weren't they trying to remove all public phones?
