I tossed horse manure over my garden yesterday. It was glorious. The sun was bright, hot and the activity felt good. I’m sore today, have the beginnings of my annual summer farmer’s tan and another day in the house isn’t looking as bleak.
If I’ve learned anything about myself it’s that I was never meant for an office building and paper pushing. I tried that and hated it. I was successful only in so much as I secured some high paying jobs that never materialized to true success because I hated them.
I can’t stress it’s never too late to do something that you like to do. Going to a job that you dread daily will wear you down and start to show both mentally and physically. Your health with struggle and your mind will rebel. I get it we all have to eat. I’m not saying quit. I’m saying if you feel real hate or dread knowing you have to get up and sign on for another day of work. Start looking for something else. Now. Something somewhere that you enjoy doing. It may not pay as much. But maybe it will as you are more willing to spend more time learning, advancing at something you actually like doing as opposed to clocking in and out with as much speed as possible to a job you hate.
And there’s never any better time than the present!
