HOLSTEE MAY, Today’s proclamation is,
IF YOU DON’T LIKE YOUR JOB, QUIT.
As a person who has been thinking a lot about the notion of jobs (I have one semester of grad school left), I’ve kind of been on the opposite end of this. So, lets see, how do I enter into a job I don’t actually hate and will be able to love for the rest of my life.
Recently my Dad actually did this, he’s close to 60, if not 60, and he left his career as a 20-year business owner to return to nursing school. I know it has been a lot of work for him, but I also know that he is so much happier. Sometimes it is the leap that is the hardest thing to do, I know that leap was extremely hard for him. He is a testament, though, that it doesn’t matter your age/gender/educational background/race/economic status but that where there is a will, there is a way–and I adamantly believe this. Don’t make excuses for a life that you want but believe you can’t have. Know you can have it, and live it.
And ending this post on this note…which I do believe too…
So that’s my advice for today…get an education that will allow you a job you won’t ever want to quit, or according to the manifesto have to quit, and go shopping (because hopefully that education provides a job that pays enough money to get yourself some nice kicks)!
