I see so many doing jobs that they hate. WHY? to pay the bills. That's it. They are only in it for the pay check. Not all, but, most.
I have 7 months until I can get out of the job I hate. The only reason I have stayed is because of the money and health insurance. I am almost done with that chapter of my life.
I am going to let you in on a little secret about making it through the job you hate. Yes, it builds character.... Ok no it doesn't it just makes you miserable. Always, be looking for something better and don't let the money tie you to a job you hate. It will be better in the long and short run.
First and for most.... be grateful. Be grateful you have money coming in to pay your bills and support your family. When at work be grateful for your family and the support they give you and the love they show.
Stay in your "happy place". Have things and pictures around you that make you smile and glad to be alive.
Keep reminding yourself this isn't forever. You will not be doing this forever. Focus on the end goal. The degree that will bring you freedom. The business you have started will keep growing. The retirement that is right around the corner. What ever you have to tell yourself to keep going.
Truly figure out what you are good at and what you really like to do. Not what Momma wants you to do but, what your Soul is telling you to do. The little voice telling you to take that class or to apply for that job or volunteer at your favorite charity. Listen, to that voice even if it seems crazy. Do it anyway.
Have things outside of work that you love to do. Be with people that lift you up and raise your vibe. Do things that make you happy and do them often. This will help keep your vibe high and it will be easier to deal with at the crappy job.
Last but, not least put yourself in the position to get out!!! Be ready to take action and make yourself and your life better!! There is nothing wrong with that. Looking for a different job or even doing a few jobs to keep the lights on is OK as long as you are moving forward to the life you want to live. If it is making you happy that is the key to it all!!
Enjoy your life and enjoy the journey to get where you want to be. It is an amazing ride and you will make great memories in the process.
Figure your shit out. Take the action needed. Is it scary? Maybe, ok yes, most definitely but, it will be worth it. Take a chance on YOU!! Make the changes needed.
I am including a free guide to help you figure out what it is you want to do with your life that will help you be happy. It isn't work if you enjoy going to do it each day. Remember that.
