Thanks to everyone that left me encouraging words on the last post. It really is amazing to receive such support from friends and strangers alike.
I've had a lot on my mind regarding this journey for a happier, healthier self and weight loss aside I have other things on my mind tonight.
What I've been pondering for the last few days; is anyone truly happy in their job? I mean is it possible to have complete and utter satisfaction at the job you keep because you have to in order to pay the bills? During an argument, my mom once told me, "Emily, no one likes their job, so just live with it." I'm starting to believe her.
I'm on my 3rd position (second company) in 3.5 years since I graduated (not counting the dozens of odd jobs I took during a 6 month bout of unemployment in 2007) and I'm still not completely satisfied with where I am in the workforce. Since this is a public blog, I won't go into details, but one thing I realized this week, coming back from vacation, is that I'm not happy where I'm at. How long do I wait to see if things will even out? Am I searching for the elusive wild boar?
Yesterday I contemplated quitting my cozy office job to join the ranks of Starbucks baristas worldwide. Do they make good money?
