“Bleed The Same”

Published May 6, 2018 by lynn k scott

It’s Sunday morning and I have another song to share.

Today’s selection is “Bleed the Same” by Mandisa.  I have mentioned she and Toby Mac have collaborated on several songs and this happens to be another great outcome of their work together.

“Bleed The Same” has a great message.  It’s time to start listening to some great words of advice.

“Feel It”

Published May 5, 2018 by lynn k scott

Today’s music video is, “Feel It”, by Toby Mac.

Ok, as I have mentioned, I’m slightly obsessed with his music lately.  In part, the music speaks to me on so many levels.  His songs make me bop my head (and occasionally chair dance).  It’s hard not to get wrapped up in the positive vibes and the different beats he uses.

As most of my followers know I am big into helping other bloggers gain more exposure. My goal has been to grow a community of like-minded people and I am part way to my goal.  I am bringing back the open call to leave a link and I’ll share it for you!!

The basic rules are simple: leave me a link to your page.  I’m not sure it gets much simpler.  You can leave as many links as you want and I’ll cycle this post from day-to-day so more people can jump on board.  The link post I’ll create will publish on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Transformation

Published May 4, 2018 by lynn k scott

Since giving up Facebook, I have gotten more into InstaGram.  Looking through all the pictures, I stumbled upon pictures of me before I got sick and before all the weight loss.  Every time I see those old photos.  I was my heaviest in 2013 (when my mother suddenly passed away).  It was around that time I had just begun a gluten-free diet. IMG_20180504_111055_175.jpg

I walk as my primary form of exercise and it’s not as often as I would like.  Now that chemo is done, I will resume walking.  I do not want to put on all the weight I have lost.

While diet change and walking do count toward a bit of the weight loss, mostly illness has been the primary factor.  I went through a lot with the Celiac’s and a then the tumor that grew for two years before I could get the medical world to believe it wasn’t an ulcer and finally treated me.

If I had to have cancer, at least a massive weight loss was the silver lining.  I don’t often share photos of myself (and I rarely smile in them).  Here are some that show my transformation.  I did cut my hair to a pixie cut when I was diagnosed.  It was the only thing in my life I could control.  I’m actually happy with it.  Super easy to maintain and color (because I will not go gracefully into that grey night).

“Broken Things”

Published May 4, 2018 by lynn k scott

Today’s musical selection is, “Broken Things” by Matthew West.

When I first heard this song, it took my breath away.  He could have written this song about me.  I am broken on so many levels.  While, I do what I can, I always feel like I am feeling short.  Feeling like I’m not good enough.  That my past has caught up with me.

This song renewed my hope and my faith.  It’s ok to be broken.  It’s ok to accept that you are; there’s still a seat at His table for you.

“Good Morning”

Published May 3, 2018 by lynn k scott

I mentioned on a previous post that I would be sharing more music that I listen to.  While I primarily listen to contemporary Christian music, don’t let that stop you from watching the videos.

Today, I’m sharing Good Morning by Mandisa.  What I didn’t realize, is that Toby Mac and Mandisa have collaborated on quite a few songs and they compliment each other very well.  As I have become a huge Toby Mac fan recently, only right to share (an older) video of the two of them.

One thing that stood out to me about this song, besides how upbeat it is, watch both singers and how happy they both are.  They obviously love what they are doing and it shows.

So enjoy the song/video and have a wonderful day!

New Job

Published May 2, 2018 by lynn k scott

I have been looking for another job for quite some time now.  Working in Human Resources can tell you a lot about a company.  It also allows you to know secrets that would completely irritate the rest of the employees, should they ever come to light.

That being said, my current position isn’t good for me.  There are far to many “questionable” decisions for my liking.  Add to that, when we were getting to renew benefits, the owner was going to cut them significantly.  I had posted my resume to see what else was out there.  I couldn’t afford how much I would shell out to cover the benefits my company was.

Long story short, a friend of mine asked if I was getting an assistant and sent me the job link she found.   My boss apparently saw my resume and posted one of their own….to replace me!!!  I had been upfront about how detrimental cutting the benefits would be.  I was basically dismissed from that discussion.  Then, instead of my boss coming to me to discuss why my resume was posted, he chose find someone else to do my job.  Later, after their interviews, it was determined they would “reinvest” in me.  They didn’t know I knew about their interviews for my position and that no one would accept the low pay they were offering.  Why?  I do A LOT for this company, but am severely underpaid; but not according to “the powers that be”.

That situation never sat well with me and I have kept my options open ever since.  On Monday, I had a job interview.  It’s a completely different line of work.  I will assist in running an office and we will start a benefits program; with my help.  My new employer is paying for my current benefits that I will continue on C.O.B.R.A., until we have a new plan in place.  I was hired on the spot.

I get to wear the same clothes that I currently wear to work.  There’s something to be said for not having to dress up every day.  Jeans and tank tops are awesome!!!  It’s a busy office, but I feel my stress level will reduce considerably.  My health has to be a priority.  I already feel a bit relieved having given notice.  A weight definitely has been lifted and prayers have been answered.

They have five dogs at my new job.  So I still can take a break and regroup (if need be) with some pup time.  You’d be surprised how much working with animals can help keep a person balanced.

Today, I discovered, they are going to replace me with an executive assistant.  That ticks me off a bit.  I have been saying for over two years, they don’t want an HR person, but an assistant.  An executive assistant position will probably pay more than my position.  That’s just how this company works.  They pay new people much more than existing staff.

I will complete the rest of this week.  Get through next week, as Friday is my last day.  I will not prepare “how-to” sheets for all the work I do.  After working for a company for five years, you would think management would want to discuss keeping me or at least acknowledge I am leaving.  Not one word.  A few coworkers know, because I told them.  They will be sorry I am leaving.  In part, I believe it’s because no one else knows how to do my job.

It really sucks, working so long for someone to feel this unappreciated.  Five years is a decent amount of time to be with one company.  I guess it’s just too hard to acknowledge I’ve done a good job for them and to wish me well.
