They say if you do something you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.
Sorry, but that just can’t be true. Because even if you get employed with your dream job, it’s still a job. There are still days where you’re going to want to sleep in or play hooky and can’t because you have to work. You may love your job, but it’s not always rainbows and butterflies.
Sometimes we like our jobs, but then other times we fall out of love with it. We get tired of monotony or we just lose our spark or we’re not doing as well as we used to. It gets to us. It takes away the love and we forget all the reasons we jumped into the position in the first place.
It’s okay to not always be 10000% thrilled with your occupation. It’s okay to go home and drink a glass of wine some days and complain for hours.
What’s not okay is if your job makes you unhappy all the time. If you’re never thrilled with it and always complaining. What’s not okay is when you can’t find any part about your job that you love anymore.
For the days where we’re just a little bit out of love with the job we love, it’s important to keep a positive outlook. To remember that bumps in the road eventually pass and at the end of the day this is still something you want to be doing.
If your bump in the road is more like a giant mountain that won’t budge, maybe it’s time to move on. If you can’t fall back in love with the job you loved – then you need to find another one that will make you happy.
