Do you love your job?
Today in my counseling session we talked about my kids and the role I want to play in their lives. We talked about my job… my next career choice and how going back into QA would be like creating a rift in myself. This is a chance for me to break out and do something that makes me happy instead of makes me money.
I have not really thought about this up until this point. I have been busy doing everything that I should and shouldn’t but she is right. I hated QA. Yes it pays well. Yes I am good at what I do. Nevertheless, it has been a job that I have never fully enjoyed. When I was working on photographic QA, Imaging software and the like, I did enjoy aspects of my job. My last job was at a bank. I’m not a money person. I’m not a numbers person… I have to count on my hands to add for Christ sake. Eek did I just say that.
My first priority has always been my kids; I said that I was working to make money for them. But you know all my kids really want is a happy Mom. They don’t care if they are wearing the best clothes or ones that have been handed down. They don’t care if they have to share a room. All they want is to feel my happiness and be bathed in my love.
Having a job that I’m happy with, that will allow me more time with my kids, and still enable me to write, that is my dream job.
Anyone know where I can find that position?
