the tale of the neverending work day.

once upon a time there was a girl who felt "meh" about her job.
she worked hard, but after about a year she grew tired of the constant complaints from her co-workers, the mindless tasks she was forced to complete, and the persisting feeling that nothing was ever finished.

one day, she decided to go to a work event that would change her outlook not only on her job, but also on life (since let's be honest, life is pretty much focused on job right now). then started a week-long meeting and her attitude was so positive that things around her started to fall into place. projects she needed to complete grew closer to the end. people she needed to be "on board" were on board. and she felt like a new person. more confident, more aware, more plugged-in.

so for 6 long days, she woke with the sun, worked all day and evening, and took cat naps in between. and at the end of it, she felt happy.

how did this all start? oh, it started with ME. telling MYSELF i could do it.
i think one of the hardest things in life is to stay positive in any circumstance, especially when you've been in the "i-give-up" mode for so long. but it's never too late to turn it around. i still have a long way to climb, but i've started the change and i feel so different. it's all about happiness, and doing whatever you can do to get there.

have a happy long holiday weekend, friends.

Jules, I cannot TELL you how often I have felt that way with my job, and wondered if there was a way out or what I was missing...only to find the same answer you just gave. :) It is so. easy. to forget, though. So thanks for the reminder!
