Joy: Not Giving Up

Wednesday night is nothing like Sunday morning. I’m the boss of this blog, and I had given myself permission to completely skip the “joy” post this week. Anything I would have attempted to post on Sunday would have been a lie. All last week was a struggle. The weekend was a little better, but I’m not at 100%.

Thankfully I’ve got the greatest friends and family. Who I can text out of the blue, and even if we can’t be together, I can feel supported. Just as I expected my calendar is starting to open up, and now its even more about finding a balance in activities. I could schedule dinner or drinks every single night. But that wouldn’t be great for my budget or my body.

Instead I need to keep working on my goals. Which are….unclear. There’s no magical job title that will make me happy. There is no dress size that guarantees success.

Not everything will work. I just have to keep trying new things.

One thought on “Joy: Not Giving Up

  1. Sorry to hear you are going through a tough stretch. I’m glad you’ve got friends and family to reach out to when you are feeling down and stressed, though. Figuring out career stuff is so hard. I felt so lost in my 20s and wasn’t really sure what I wanted so I can relate to how you feel. I’m envious of people who had a specific career in mind, like being a nurse or doctor or speech pathologist or something like that. I was a math major and then got my MBA so there isn’t really a clear career path for that combo of education. Luckily I found where I belong, but even after finding this industry, I had a long stretch of questioning if this was really where I was meant to be as I had a couple of jobs with pretty crappy work environments. At one point I even thought about completely changing careers and going back to school to work in publishing or as an english teacher. Then I found my current job and am back to liking what I do. But it’s never going to really be my ‘passion project’ in life.

    Hang in there!
