I Still Love My Job
January 15, 2011 2 Comments
Even after the cutbacks, the layoffs, the insecure nature of my position right now. I realized something: I love my job.
I mean, if you’ve been reading my blog at all the last 4 months you know that I love it. But even with all this bad stuff happening I STILL LOVE IT.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I don’t like the insecurity. I don’t like the not knowingness. But I still love what I do on a day to day basis.
At my previous position I hated it so much that even though I was asked to stay, begged to stay, threatened to stay – I didn’t want to. I hated it. I loathed every day I came in to work. I loathed so many of the people that I worked with that working wasn’t a joy – it was a burden.
Now I’m so in love with my job that I do it for $20k less than I could be making. I do it in the face of possible termination. I do it still, so joyously, that from the surface you may not even realize that anything at all was wrong.
Red asked yesterday if we’d chose a job we loved for little pay or a job we hated for great pay – every day I come to work I make that choice over and over again: a job I love.
