Doing Life Better

Remember What You’re Working For

I have a confession to make: I’ve been having a really hard time keeping my eyes on the prize.

I find myself increasingly frustrated at my day job. I feel more and more that my work there isn’t as meaningful as I’d like it to be. My feelings are that Management is continuing to make the same mistakes as it has in the nearly six years I’ve worked there and has no interest in changing for the better. I’m finding that vacations are helping less and less and I dread going back to work after a few days off. I want to quit. Oh boy, do I want to quit in the worst way way. But I can’t. My husband and I have some really important goals for our family before I can walk away from that job. No matter how much I hate it, no matter how much it feels like it’s sucking the life right out of me with every meeting that should have been an email, or useless jargon thrown around like a ticker tape parade.
