Obstacle Course

Its like a Military Obstacle Course in some of these buildings.
In the Air Force we called it a "Confidence Course"
Well....I am confident that I don't want to finish my last 8 years on this route...LOL

The Hood

Hey World,
Question:
How do you know when you are delivering mail in "The Hood"?

Answer: You walk up the stairs of 2 houses on the same block with luxury cars in the driveways, and BIG WHITE water shutoff notices on the front door.
Peace

Morning

Good Morning World...
Thank God for another day.

This is how I look on my new route.

Quote for the day:

Could we change our attitude, we should not only see life differently, but life itself would come to be different. Life would undergo a change of appearance because we ourselves had undergone a change in attitude.

Do not judge men by mere appearances; for the light laughter that bubbles on the lip often mantles over the depths of sadness, and the serious look may be the sober veil that covers a divine peace and joy.

The Shoe



Hey World,
Whats going on???

Well...it looks like "the shoe is on the other foot" for me.
Many mornings I try to post motivational messages on this blog.
I try to encourage you all that everything happens for a reason.

Well now it seems like I need some motivation myself.

Last week the US Postal Service decided that we could do without 2 of the routes in our office.
That means 2 of our Carriers would be without routes (the 2 with the least seniority)

Out of 15 routes in our office, I am #4 from the bottom (even with 27 years)
So unfortunately, one of the carriers who lost his route had more seniority than me, so he chose MY route to be HIS new route.

I must admit, I had a REALLY good route for the past 7 years.
No dogs, no people harassing me for mail, no hills, not many stairs, etc.
IT WAS ALL GOOD!!!!
I made alot of friends and connections.

I had a choice of 3 routes below me, and 2 of them were responsible for 5 routes each.
I could not handle that, so I chose a route that is definitely in THE HOOD!!!

I thought I would never have to deal with THE HOOD again.
Not that I am any better than anyone else, but sometimes it can be quite annoying.
I have to put myself in DEFENSE mode at all times.
Dark buildings, hills, stairs, dogs, and people who just WAIT for the 1st of the month.

WHY MEEEEEE?????
Why Not?

I have only done the route twice so far, and it is beating me down physically.
Maybe its God's way of telling me to start getting on that treadmill in my basement again (for the health benefits)

The hills have KILLED me these last 2 days, but I MUST find a better way to work the route.

So now I look at this as another learning experience.
Maybe there is someone waiting for me to possibly make a difference in their life with a simple Hello, a regular Smile, and some Respect.

Through it all, I can't complain.
I have a JOB.......
That is a Blessing in itself.

So I guess I will just do my BEST for these last 8 years in the Postal Service.
If I can just HELP SOMEBODY....Then my living will not be in VAIN.

What do you think????

Have a Good Night
