6 years ago I started a new job that would forever change the ideas I had of what I was going to do with my life. I was excited to begin and learn. Excited about the opportunities it was bringing to my family.
6 years can really change things.
I still have the same job. I no longer am excited. I am usually frustrated by the whole thing. I used to care about my coworkers and now I find a lot of them are no better than inmates themselves. I don’t see good in people. I see inmates.
Not too long ago, I decided to go ahead and try and remove that awful negative part of my existence. Nope, I am not going to get a new job. This one does still provide for my family and provides a lot of great benefits. I just am choosing to not focus on my work.
It made me laugh, because it made me think of it like a call girl and “you are just a paycheck to me”.
It’s just a paycheck.
This is not my life; this is how I pay for my life.
And truthfully, I have a pretty awesome life.
