6/26 It just doesn't matter...

That's my favorite line from "Meatballs." Bill Murray is telling the misfit kids (paraphrasing here)...It doesn't matter if you win the basketball game. It doesn't matter if you rub their faces in the dirt. It doesn't matter that you've worked hard for this day. Why? Because the rich guys will always get the girls. It just doesn't matter.

And that became their mantra, "It just doesn't matter."

I'm using that today through some difficult situations.

AND I've finally come to the conclusion that I don't have to be liked (even though I want people to like me). I just need to do my job. Being the boss isn't a popular position to be in. I take the heat for what happens in MS. I'm doing the best I can, always realizing that the clients come first. And if people don't like me--

It just doesn't matter.

Mom, I'm sorry to hear that you're going through tough times at work. It sucks not being one of the gang, but you're right--you're there for the clients. Wouldn't it be nice if everybody kept that in mind?

Well, keep your chin up. I'm sure things will level out soon. You're doing important work for a lot of people.

I'm really proud of you, mom. Hang in there.

Love Rob

Thanks, Robbie. Things are better already--just because I gave it to God. I'm absolutely fine. (I love you, honey.) Mom

Andrea, I'm glad you reminded me. I've been looking forward to this all TV year! You, Jane, and I will have to compare notes.
