I did not miss work.
It’s 7:00am on the day I am returning after two weeks off and I can say, unequivocally, I didn’t miss work. Not one bit. While I am grateful I have a job, these two weeks away from the daily grind have made the proverbial pebble in my shoe feel like a boulder.
I believe it is high time to start seriously brainstorming about my greater purpose. The time has come to think big and get resourceful. I wonder what will be next for me? I hope it will include the following:
(No more paycheck to paycheck living.)(I was told that I need to speak in the positive so I’m crossing the negatives out. Thanks Princess!)
- Challenges and utilizes my unique skill set (I excel at managing people and really should be in charge of more than just volunteers.)
- Flexible schedule and relatively easy commute (
Excessive overtime not required nor an hour to travel to and from home to get there.I like to have a life outside of my job.)
- Comprehensive benefits (That include holistic health practices and therapy, vision and dental and hopefully a 401K program that actually makes my money work for me.)
- Balanced gender mix of (nice) coworkers (I work in a predominantly female environment and while I love my lady friends, my single lady friends would like to meet some eligible bachelors. I could help!)
Hmmm. . .What should I be when I grow up? Has anyone made a pretty drastic career change (like from the non-profit sector to the for-profit sector or from one line of work to another) before? Any tips on how to do this?
More importantly, are you in a job/line of work that you feel fulfilled in? Yes or No? And if no, what do you wish you were doing?
Let’s dream big together!
