Don’t parents just hate that expression, I know I did when my kids were young…
Bored? I’ll give you bored, there’s cleaning to be done, washing, when was the last time you cleaned the fish out…
And so on..
But I find myself saying that to myself lately, I know why it is, I’ve left a stimulating job that I had to to be thinking on my feet all the time, which got to much after ten years, so I made a change, to a job that I need no brain at all, I can do it standing on my head.
What would I like to be doing? Good question!
What I would like, and what I’m good at is two different things!
I’m good at my job, I’m confident at it, been doing it a long time, I find it easy, it’s a worth while job, it helps people, it contributes to the community. But do I still want to do it?
I do have a new venture just waiting for me in the wings, I’ve got so far, I’m on the list, but I don’t know when it’s going to start, so I’m in this limbo of brain dead. And when I do start, is it going to be all I imagine it to be.
I would like to be, what feeds my sole is drawing, baking, writing, music, using my brain and hands, but I’m not good at those, well not enough to make money from them, there are plenty of others out there already doing that much better. I think you are a very lucky person to be able to make money doing something that you have a real passion for.
Not to be negative but when you read, you can do anything you set your mind to, you do wonder, really?
I want to be a concert pianist, but you do need to have some sort of talent for that, believe you me I’ve tried, and it just ain’t going to happen.
You can enjoy your job but is it really what you want to be doing?
I try and ask myself, what would you do if money and qualifications were no worry, would you still do what you are doing now?
I shall leave you with that thought, while I find a pretty picture to add to the ombience! X
You ask a difficult question! My job has become a pain in the you know what, but I’ve been doing it 38 years so changing now would be rather traumatic, but I do dream about it! Thanks for the brain stimulation today!
I understand your dilemma! I have been (am) there. Mostly though I absolutely love your picture 🙂
Thanks! It’s a tricky one isn’t it! X
