Woke up this morning at 5am and couldn't get back to sleep, which is very weird for me and it was all because I couldn't help dreaming about my work. Sounds sad I know but it's been Christmas holiday for ages and I've been really enjoying being lazy but this morning I just couldn't wait to get back to work. I love my job working with young people and trying my best to be helpful and it's all reminded me again how fortunate I am.
It does also make me wonder about what everyone else does. Why should it be the fortunate few who enjoy their jobs? I know circumstances mean we have to do things we'd rather not do sometimes just to earn money but I also think there's probably a trend of people doing what's expected of them in their career choices rather than what they would choose to do if money was no object. How many people can say they'd do their jobs for free? Not many and that's a shame. Most people seem to head into jobs where they're constantly watching the clock, waiting for 5pm or waiting for the end of Friday so that their life can start. And before you know it, you've wasted your life - or even worse - you feel content enough with it and never realise there's anything better.
Anyway, I don't want to sound ungrateful. I'm humbled that I get to do what I do and get paid for it. But let's all want the very best for ourselves and others and not necessarily follow the trends and expectations. If I'd have done that, I'd be a solicitor/architect by now - crikey!
