Letter 5: Change in Perspective

I’ve written a few blog posts about how I’m not enjoying the structure of my 9-5 job anymore and want to discover my passions and pursue these. If you’ve read these you may have noticed that they can be quite negative when I’m talking about my job (even though I don’t hate my job, I’m just not passionate about it).

After a bit of time I’ve come to realise that I should enjoy my job, I should enjoy the self-discovering journey that it is allowing me to go on. Without my job, I would have more time to pursue my passions, but I’d also have no money – which isn’t an option right now.

I’ve come to the realisation that my job is a positive thing, it is supplying me with money and the skills I need to pursue my passions in my own time – it is actively helping towards achieving my dream life, and that is something to be thankful for.

Since coming to this realisation I’ve started to enjoy life a bit more, the weight on my shoulders has decreased. Looking at the positives of situations is not always doable, but I’m trying to do so wherever and whenever I can. Life is a journey and without having my job, I wouldn’t be on the path I am now – so I am very grateful to have it.

I think we can try to be more thankful for the journey we are on right now, even if it isn’t perfect.

What is something you need to be more thankful for?
