HAVE YOU EVER BEEN SO DISAPPOINTED THAT YOU DON’T BELIEVE ANY ANYMORE?
You find right from the start of life we have highs and lows it’s about learning and taking those experiences with you as you grow from a baby to adult and as we are called old age at 61.
FOR EVERY HIGH THERE IS A LOW FOR A EVERY GOOD A BAD EVERY ACTION A REACTION TO EXPERIENCE IT IS LIVING TO ACCEPT IS ADULT TO LEARN AND RISE ABOVE IS TO BE STRONG TO UNDERSTAND IS LEARNING.
If i was to look back at life iv’e had some great highs, would i call them great lows id call them learning because for every Low you must walk out of them experiencing suitations in life that makes you stronger in some ways.
Does it take the lows to reach the highs or are they put in front of you to reach that high. Now for all of us it’s a huge part of life we all have them and we all watch our kids, family, friends and our work mates have them in every day of living..
There is a saying….That Life Is Like A Roller Coaster, you Have Your Ups & Downs Unless you Fall Off.
Eight months ago i was lucky or would i call it fortunate enough to score a good job in FIFO in Civil Construction which for me its the structure of new roads and maintaining them. Now i will say and a very honest assessment that i have worked hard at this position we’re i needed to learn a whole new occupation for this new career. I feel i was rewarded for not giving up in getting this position as it took nearly 2 years to get it.
So it’s only human to feel if you put the hard work in you get rewarded or recognition of your work and achievement that you have succeed to do. Now the company has a performance grading on us each week with, the task we are given, the way we function with it, our personality, reaction to the task’s given to us, strengths & weakness at work, this is analysed every shift.
Now the company made an offer to all of us a full time position a five year contract guarantee with an extension of five years. So as we all did put in for the position offered as we needed to put in an application in for it. Now as we know i have done my hamstring and missed one shift so far and maybe another one the way it’s going which is not to good.
I was told last night by the supervisor that i didn’t get the position offered. Gutted is not the word id use it’s the polite one i should but if i was being honest fucking shattered. Now do i believe i should have got it, of course i do as i have come a long way in eight months and ticked all the boxes for the company. How it works is that i have missed out on a full time position, which is rewarded with.. 4 weeks annual leave, 10 sick days a year, 10 payed stress leave, being payed from when you get on your flight, if the weather is bad when you cant work you get payed, the flight home get payed and forty six dollars an hour, with all PPE provided 4 times a year and the opportunity to go forward as they put you through the programs on the machines.
Am i the sort of guy that thinks the other workers shouldn’t have got the position before me.. no i’m not good luck to them i’m disappointed as some workers have only been there for a month and got the position and out of 60 workers 45 got the job, the rest of us have been called construction and we are being shifted to a new camp and roads. But all so what it means is that the next opportunity is January 2021 i have another 10 months on casual position and rate, which is good i still have a job but what it means i do over 2 years with no benefit’s with the missing of full time security which is a really good thing at 61.
Iv’e been guaranteed my job is secure which is good, so for me ill just keep doing the right things and make sure my standard of work doesn’t drop, keep enjoying the job and were it is in a stunning land of Australia, the main thing for me as well is the money is something i’m not going to earn in the city, and i do love being there..
Would i call this a drama of life NO what it is for me it is disappointment another LOW which could be because i put a lot of emphasis an a importance for me personally, i also believe if you don’t set goals, targets, and achievements to achieve well then life is pretty fucking boring if you haven’t the incentive to keep improving and learning with life.
