My new attitude to work has been going well when I am there, so that is a start. I made a goal to decide what to do about work, and after some soul searching, and some changes made to my working week, I pretty much have that sorted. It is a good place for me to be at the moment, so I am staying put for now. Through this process I have reminded myself about, and become clearer about, the things that matter to me at work.
These things include a supportive team; the ability to work with patients in a medium to long term way; flexibility of working hours/days to suit my sometimes changing needs, to name a few. Anyway, the positives far outweighed the negatives of the job. The people stuff I was struggling with has been mostly manageable which in itself is great. So when I write it, it seems like a good place to be.
In the last month, I have had to have - what equates to - nearly 2 weeks off work (not in a row), and this is very frustrating, as I lose my momentum. So I am feeling a little rudderless at the moment. I have not been blogging, and I have been trying to find some routine around study, but I realise that work forms part of my stability.
It is so easy to lose the way. Why is this? Why is it harder to find again?
I will ponder this while I acquaint myself with ontology and hermeneutics!!
These Rambling ways of mine
they get me in trouble all the time
