Today is Monday. Like many of you out there who need a little encouragement to start their day, I sometimes need to remind myself why I pick myself up and go to work in the morning. The warm fuzzy feeling the weekend has brought with it has faded and is about to be replaced by the hard reality of daily life once again. ‘Where did the weekend go ?’, many of you probably ask yourselves as you walk, commute or drive to work and get ready for another productive day. And although my ‘weekend’ doesn’t fall on Saturday and Sunday, when my days off end I feel no different.
I will be honest with you. I am currently working at a job I do not love anymore, in a place where I do not feel at home anymore and with people I do not feel comfortable around anymore. And I fear I am not the only person out there finding myself in this sort of situation. And let me tell you something, it’s ok to be unhappy with your lot in life.
There is no need to feel any guilt about this! When things in life are not working out the way you want them to it’s ok to express your displeasure. But after having done so, do not forget to take the next step in the journey towards happiness. Make changes happen! Make plans, write them down and act on them. Do you want to quit your job? If the answer is yes, look into ways you can do that. Do you want to stay at your job but change how you feel about it? Look at what is making you feel the way you are and think of ways how you could change that! Just remember, today is the first day of the rest of your life. Every change you make today, you will carry with you for the rest of you life. Good luck!
