View Full Version : Feeling Hopeful Today

Hello Everyone,

I am feeling hopeful today and not bummed like some days. I post quite often when I am feeling bummed, and appreciate everyones kind words and encouragement. I just wanted to make a hopeful encouraging post for once instead of my usual "downer" ones.

I've been on my new shift for about a month now. Some parts of it I like (sleeping at night), some parts of it I could do without (dealing with difficult people). My feet were in agony ~ Mom suggested I try the kind of shoes she wears, and they have helped so much ~ a bit pricey, but if I have less foot pain it is worth it.

I've not been perfect with the food, but have been better. I feel like for a change, my head is on straight :D

Thank you all again for listening and your support and encouragement.

Gayle -- It's not bad to post on our bad days, but I know what you mean about wanting to post on good days too! Shift changes are an enormous lifestyle change!!! Sounds like you're adapting!

Gayle that's awesome that things are going better!!

What kind of shoes??

Sandi ~ they are SAS shoes. The particular style I got was called Free Time. They really have helped a lot. I wish I had gotten them sooner.

I think that's the brand my mother-in-law has been raving about. I bought new balance gym shoes and they are great. I bought some in black and I don't like them all that much. Since I stand all day if I teach I might have to lok into those!

Thanks for the positive post. They are always nice to read. I'm glad you feel in control. I just recently changed back to day shift myself and I'm loving it. It's so nice to be able to come home and cook a nice dinner again and have the evening to enjoy.

Hey Howie ~ good to see you here. I was just thinking of you and Kimberly last evening ~ wondered how things were going with your new job and all. Glad you are enjoying your new job and shift.
