I Don’t Hate My Job!

This blog was originally written on May 16, 2018. I never published it for some reason but found it in my drafts. Wow! To read it and to know I’m now living the life IΒ  dreamed of back then. AMAZING!

I thought it was important to state that fact in the title. I really don’t hate my job, in fact, I’d say I have the ideal job. I get to work with teachers and students all day. I really don’t hate my job. I’m sure you’re asking yourself, “why does she keep saying that, we get it you don’t hate your job.”

So, I guess I should start at the beginning and explain where this is coming from. When I published my first book in 2009, I felt proud of that accomplishment. I’d actually written and published a book… even I couldn’t believe it. After I fulfilled that goal, something happened on the inside of me. I started desiring that feeling more and more. The feeling of setting a goal and actually achieving it.

Now, many years later, my goals have expanded dramatically. I once looked at $250,000 houses and wanted one for me and my family, but now those seem too small. I find myself looking at million dollar houses. I want that just as bad as I wanted to publish that book in 2009.

I want to travel and more than any of those things, I want freedom. Freedom to make my own schedule and attend awards day programs at my children schools without needing permission to take off. I want the freedom to be creative in all aspects of my life.

No, I don’t hate my job, but I am at the point where I desire more. So, if you ever hear me talk about the possibility of leaving education one day, just know that it’s not because I hate… well you get it. πŸ™‚

How about you? Are you where you want to be in life? If not, what’s your plan of action? I’m working on mine. I don’t plan to stop until I wake up one day and my visions from yesterday are my realities of today. Then, and only then, will I pause and create a new vision, but I’ll never stop dreaming and never ever stop wanting more… ever.
