So where did I leave off? Making other people happy? So, lets assume most jobs are in the business of serving others. Whether you work in a factory, a coffee shop, an office, or the like, your main focus is getting your job done so other people can benefit, and you get paid to do it. Are you fulfilled? Listen, not everyone is going to have a job that fulfills them, or makes them warm and fuzzy. If everyone had their dream job their entire lives, I can almost be certain that the entire world would be left with out a lot of commodities.
I digress. My whole point to these posts is because I came to a realization. I don't love my job MOST OF THE TIME (anymore). I am not generally a person that sticks to one thing for too long, some may call it a downfall, I call it an asset. I don't get complacent (in the most negative connotation of the word). But about a year ago, I decided that I needed to stick to something, whether I like it or not. So there's that.
Moving on to my realization, there are other things that make me happy. I love singing, and I actually love performing if it weren't for my stage fright. I could make you a list of things that require doing that make me happy, but this post is not for you to read about what makes me happy. It is about actually learning to do. When you aren't at work, what do you do? Complain about being tired and not having time for anything else but your job? Maybe that time spent complaining could give you half of an hour to do something you love doing. All I'm trying to say is that it isn't rocket science, if there is something that makes you happy, and your job is not on that list, take time after you've made your money for the day, week, or month, to do something that makes you happy.
That's it. Actually do something.
