The right occupation doesn’t necessarily mean the highest paying job. Regardless of how much money you earn, a bad work environment will cause you to be miserable. There is no better feeling than getting up and looking forward to the workday. (In the perfect situation, you may even stay a little longer to finish up some work!)
If you find yourself watching the clock for quitting time, or thanking your imaginary friend in the sky because it’s Friday, you are probably working for the wrong company. Mondays should not be a dreaded day. (I wonder if employers follow their employees on social media sites in order to see how miserable some people truly are!)
Our society causes people to think that money is everything, but happiness can only come from enjoying what you do. I’m sure it’s great to receive a large check at the end of the week, but if the weekend is not long enough because you hate returning to work on Monday, you should look for employment, elsewhere!
I wish I could describe how it feels to look forward to the workday. I guess it’s something that people have to experience for themselves. You know you have a fun job when it’s time to clock out and you before you even realize it. (Where does the time go?)
Obviously, there a many factors that go into making a job fun. The people you work with and the customers play a major role, but if you keep a positive outlook and disregard the small inconveniences, you will find that life is more enjoyable.
The weather is another major factor. If you live in a great city, with wonderful weather, you will probably be more adept at keeping a positive outlook. Living in a city like Seattle, where it rains all the time probably fills people with gloom, unless you love the rain. Cold weather can also ruin a person’s workday. Conversely, hot weather can also cause people to become negative, unless you work in an air-conditioned environment.
To all of the people who love going to work, congrats; you won the employment lottery. For those who dislike their jobs, take a chance and make a change. The reward of loving what you do, will outweigh the risk. It’s probably best to find a new job before quitting an old one, but the most confident people have the guts to chase take control of their happiness. (It’s scary, but well worth it in the end!)
Take chances and enjoy your life!
