Live to work

So I've been slacking off with the blog lately because I've been incredibly busy at work -- and absolutely LOVING it.

I haven't really talked much about my new job because I've been afraid to talk about how bad the old one was. Well, I'm not afraid anymore, and I will tell you -- that job was 18 months of hell. I came home almost every day crying to Andrew and absolutely miserable. I dreaded getting up in the morning and was SO tired at work. I didn't feel valued by my boss and was actually accused of threatening her because I stood up for myself when they were doing something that was wrong.

In April, though, everything changed. I am so HAPPY when I come home from work now. I have free reign over the CHG Pulse website and get to write feature stories about employees and meet new people daily. My supervisor gave me a sweet gift on my three-month anniversary and just sent me a flower gram during United Way Week.

Yesterday, at about 3 p.m., Vanessa (my co-worker/supervisor) told me I could leave at any time because of the holiday. If I had still been at Overstock, I would have had everything wrapped up and been out the door in five minutes. I actually stayed at work until 4:30 because I was excited about the stories I was working on, and because I really feel so dedicated to this company and want to work hard.

Just wanted to share why I've been so happy! I wish you all the same!


  1. LIKE! (That's me, pushing the pretend "like" button.)

  2. It is so important to have a job that brings happiness to your life and that you love. I'm so glad you found one!

  3. Oh goodness, I'm so sorry about your previous job, but glad you've found a far better work environment!


Thanks for sharing your beautiful thoughts! I love reading them.
