    Wink I Think I Am Done Here.

    After 300 plus posts, some soul searching & rendering, lots of angst, anger, frustration etc., I have decided to back away.

    I am changing my life. Surely you heard that cliche: "the only constant in life is change"!

    While this forum, and this web site is a great thing, I realize that any change at UPS Freight is most likely not going to come in the near future. Maybe in 2012-2013 during the next contract renewal, maybe not or ever.

    For the last 6 months, I have doing some things in my personal away from work life that for now, I find much more fulfilling.

    For some time I have been a person who tries to right the wrongs as I see them, or if I can't right them, I expose them to the light of others. Hopefully by doing so, people see they need to be ever vigilant.

    Getting healthy whether in body, mind or spirit takes baby steps. I am taking those baby steps now and probably have been for the last couple of months.

    So to all my brothers here, even the ones that I don't always agree with,
    Have A Great Life, Do What You Can, and Be Well.

    You must learn to accept the things you can't change and change the things you can. The key is? Will you know the difference between the two? Good luck!

    ..there are times you have to weather the storm..as LBJ said..

    "Being president is like being a jackass in a hailstorm. There's nothing to do but to stand there and take it."
    ..for now..we`re the ***,but there is clearing on the horizon....recharge..come on back...the show is only just started...the plot is yet hammered out,and the twist and turns will be surprising....

    I do agree that there are times that we must set our priorities in life, but try to fit us back into your list asap.
