I LOVE MY JOB! I tried thinking of other ways to write that and build it up, but it’s pretty simple these days! I honestly can’t remember ever feeling the elation that I’ve been feeling lately with my other jobs–of course there were elements and experiences that I really loved, but for the most part, I just showed up and hoped for a good day. But now, everything about this job is great! The people, the work, the schedule, the responsibilities, the challenges…I feel like FINALLY, finally, I found a job that’s a fit.
I honestly think unemployment has played a role in my work attitude, mostly because I’m grateful to have a job, and even more grateful that it’s a good one that I’m psyched about. I’ve basically been working professionally non-stop since the day I graduated college, and on the one hand, that was awesome! But on the other, without even realizing it, my expectations for my work life were reaching unattainable, stratospheric levels. I needed to be knocked down a bit and refocus. And more importantly, it showed me that my life happiness is not entirely incumbent on my job. I thought the worst thing in the world that could EVER HAPPEN would be that I was unemployed…it happened, it wasn’t so bad, it didn’t end up destroying my life. Success!
So now I’m riding the wave of this new feeling of looking forward to work and actually enjoying the time that I spend there. My only problem….with no more work angst, what am I supposed to write about?!?!
