As I briefly mentioned in last Wednesday's post, I have come to terms and finally found a small sliver of tranquility in the turbulent vortex that is me as it pertains to my job.
As it now stands, my job has nothing left to offer me in the way of new skills for career advancement. In turn, I have nothing left to give to my job beyond showing up, putting in my eight hours per day and fulfilling the basic requirements of my job.
Nothing more and certainly nothing less.
I know that things happen for a reason and I know that eventually things will fall into place for me.
All I can do right now is control what I can to the best of my ability, even with the firestorm that will be hitting my work world in a couple of months, which in turn will create a whole new set of problems.
Or create an unfortunate solution to the current bleak economic reality that every other state in the union is facing.
In any event, this re-found tranquility has, after a one month hiatus, helped me not only restart my writing, but also allowed me to refocus on my surroundings again, which in turn can only help my writing and my blogging.
To complete this relatively lucid and rant free Monday morning post, I leave you with this nifty video.

Or, if you rather have a song that better matches how crappy my work life actually is and perhaps how crappy your day is:
