One of my co-workers will be my boss in about 3 weeks from now. He is younger than one of my daughters. The blessing is that I really like him, I believe him to be super sharp and a genuinely nice guy. It's quite difficult to be an aging woman in a field of young aspiring adults. Upper management must have a PhD, middle management must have a Masters and Supervisors must have a Bachelors. I never went back to school when I was younger because I was raising kids then raising hell then just did not want to. I have a technical expertise in my field because of the amount of years I've put in and fortunately they don't teach what I do in school so my position has always been kind of cushy and the pay is more than decent. The problem is that people around me are so interested in climbing higher, making management, making more money, and having more responsibility. I sometimes "feel bad" because I can't make myself get into that mode. I really enjoy what I do and I would like to keep doing it until I retire. That attitude seems to be viewed as "not wanting to improve yourself." I do not tell the people at work....."Oh lordy, you have no idea how much I have improved myself!!" LOL
Today, I will turn to God where I always feel good enough and where I truly know that all the improvement in me has been through his grace and mercy.
