What do you do when you come to the realization that you have arrived at a place in your career when you have no desire to be in management? We’re told via succession planning and the seen potential in us by others, that we are management material. Management is always conveyed as the ultimate goal of any role, to be in charge of and over others. But the looks of disbelief that come when you tell your supervisor/manager that have no passion or desire to move into management are staggering. They look at you in disbelief, dumbfounded at your words, and as if you have taken temporary leave of your senses; like you are lazy and lacking in ambition, when that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Happy Hump Day my lovelies!!
We have reached the middle of yet another work week and I am elated because the weekend, and hopefully some late Saturday morning sleep, awaits me! My pain levels and lack of sleep due to the RA and related back issues has been off the charts here for the last month or so and shows no signs of abating.

Happy Sunday my Lovelies!
You will have to forgive me for not postings more this week but I have been very unwell. I didn’t want to say anything but a friend counseled me via email and told me that I needed to blog about my struggle. That by blogging I will be released from the bondage of pain and that I very well may help someone going through the same thing or something similar.
