Maybe it’s not so bad after all…

30 Jan

So a very strange thing happened to me today: I had a busy day at work. It was amazing! I had something to work on the whole day. (If you don’t know, that hasn’t happened for about the past month).

Not only was I busy, I…enjoyed it.

I’m choosing to believe that it’s not just a side effect of me staying home sick yesterday. Nor a side effect of me looking for jobs as an editor, journalist, writer, or publisher and finding zilch.

I’m choosing to believe that it’s because when I’m being utilized for a full 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, I actually do enjoy my job. Marketing and media have always been interesting to me–that’s part of why I majored in Journalism.

Not finding any jobs in the area I’m interested in has also shown me that staying in my current job for the foreseeable future is probably the reality of my life right now. So I need to make the most of the job I have now, instead of bemoaning the fact that it’s not my “passion.” Sometimes I wonder if my discontentment is just selfish pride talking.

Sometimes I’m pretty sure it is.

Honestly, though, I’m thankful that I have a job, even if it has been a rocky road for the past couple of months. God gives good gifts to His children–and I’m choosing to believe that my job can be one of them.
