Ever have those days where you don’t want to get out of bed? You don’t want to go to work? Is your job really worth the time being lost?
Recently, that’s me every day. I have an awful commute to work and when I am at work I am staring at my screen pretending to work. I just can’t seem to focus or even want to work. Maybe it’s the thought that to the right of my computer screen there is a dead succulent plant? The fact that I killed one the easiest plants to keep alive probably means this job alone is killing me. I spend an average of 2.5 hours in traffic a day and an extra 9 hours in my particle board filled cubicle. That’s almost 60 hours a week that I am missing out of my son growing up. Over three thousand hours a year lost, down the drain, and unfortunately, I will never get back. Granted, yes I am getting paid, but money sure in hell can’t buy memories.
So, I am sitting here at my desk eating a pint of ice cream (Which is pretty much gone, recommended serving size, who? ) listening to Hozier, wondering what to do from here. I know that almost every mom works now because of the cost of living, but I feel as if I am giving up. I need to do something more with my time, I need to find some sort of happiness. Ironically enough I came across this video this morning while scrolling through my Facebook feed called “10 Things to remember when you feel stuck.” Hmm, It’s a sign, there could totally be hope for me. So here are the 10 things that helped me ease my mind a bit and hopefully you will find it inspiring to do something that makes you happy.
