As happens from time to time, I'm stealing RWW to make a point about my own life that I hope will inspire/encourage others.
After reading the comments on the last few posts in which I've talked about my job, I realize that I may be giving the wrong impression. You're only getting the bad side of things, and even the bad is colored by my general sense of displeasure with my chosen profession. Reading the comments encouraging me to get out of my awful situation as, in stead, encouraged me to think about the good things.
Don't get me wrong. I am still on a slow and careful search for another position, but I must recognize the good in my life, as well.
Think for a moment. What are you grateful for? Have you told anyone lately? Or have you, like me, been swallowed up in your own complaining, forgetting for a time that there is good in your life?
I've complained about my job since about the second week, which is rather pathetic, and which means that I am to blame. I made the wrong choice. I can't blame my bosses for not suiting my tastes. I can't blame the moody customers (well, maybe I can).
So, I'm pausing. I'm taking a moment to breathe in and simply feel grateful.
Look around. What are you grateful for? What do you have in your life, in spite of not having something you might think you should have?
