Well, as many of you know I recently quit my first job out of college. While it was one of the most difficult decisions I made, for many reasons, it was a great one.
First off, I worked 3rd. I may be being a big baby, but it’s not for everyone–fyi I’m one of those it’s NOT for. Plus, anxiety from the job and a lack of fulfillment had something to do with my ultimate decision.
Given that I’m only 23, I have my entire life ahead of me. I dont want to settle for something that makes me miserable, just because it’s bringing in some money (which wasn’t enough for the headache it caused me)….. let’s face it-the majority of our lives, is work. So, don’t you wanna do something that makes you feel alive and thankful, instead of something that makes you feel frustrated and unhappy?
Well, I did. I do. I will find that. I refuse to settle for less, to settle for something I’ve grown numb to, just because society says we must work. NO. That’s not what life is. Sure, call my decisions wreckless, careless, or whatever else you feel-I wouldn’t argue with you either. But, I know, the type of person I am… I can’t just settle.
I realize it’s harder for those of you who have kids and a lot of bills…but I encourage you to never ever stop looking for your dream! Society has us so stuck on 9 to 5’s or just working for the pay… but it should be so much more than that. If 9 to 5 is what makes you happy, then do it. Just don’t ever put yourself last. That leads to burnout, QUICK.
P.S: sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I’m trying to get back to a regular routine.
