Guess I'm not alone

(Today's post is off the topic of infertility and parenthood)

I have hinted in previous posts that I am not particularly happy in my current job.  I sometimes feel guilty for feeling discontent, for a variety of reasons longer than I care to get into here, but I continue to feel discontent nonetheless.  It is what it is.

During a short mental break this morning, I impulsively googled "how to stay motivated at a job you hate" and got over 2.6 million results.  And the first few pages of results are multiple articles that actually give practical advice on this topic.

Hmm.  Clearly I'm not the only one feeling this way about work.

It is a good thing that, unlike, say five or ten years ago, I have other things in my life from which I derive fulfillment, my sons chief among them.  Being unhappy at work when work is just about the only thing in your life is terrible.  I know, because I've been there, too.

Something's got to change, and I know that, eventually, it will.  'Til then, I've just gotta keep on keepin' on. . . back to it.

  1. Most folks don't like something about their jobs. Even my spouse who loves his job doesn't like the fact that because of downsizing his job is no longer secure.

I love comments! Just one caution: if you want to leave a negative comment on this blog, I would ask that you question the motive for doing so; I will not publish it. Thanks.
