As of about 3:30pm today, I was free. Free from the controlling, micro-managing, oppressive supervisor with whom I've worked for the past 14 months. Through circumstances arranged by God, I believe, I landed an interview for a new position as a supervisor (elsewhere within my agency) and was offered the job that very same day. Now, I haven't yet started that job yet, but I do believe that it just may be a better fit for me. In fact, I am guaranteed to not have Mr. W. standing over my shoulder watching my every move anymore!

There are times in your life that you recognize that nothing you say or do is going to change a situation or another person. This is one of those times for me. And when the stress of dealing with that person or situation begins to affect the rest of your life, you know it's time for a change. I am thankful for the bresh of fresh air that I will be having every day from now on since I do not have to get up and face Mr. W. I recongnize that no job is perfect, and there are challenging people everywhere you look. However, I also recognize that there are situations and opportunities which are better suited for someone than others. All I can do now is pray that I do not EVER become a supervisor like Mr. W.!
