Another inspiration for me was Ayn Rand's books, "The Fountainhead" and "Atlas Shrugged". She is often demonized by the left, but her basic philosophy was that if people just did for work what they really loved to do and had a passion for, then the whole world would be a happier place. Because she called this "The Virtue of Selfishness", it kinda got a bad rap...
But we "cannot give what we don't have, so our first job is to fill ourselves as completely as possible."
Crazy!! Take good care of yourself! I know you will.
You are probably right. The more sensitive I become to the rest of the world the more I can pick out each individual, subtle feeling regarding work. Before everything felt like one big ball of feelings that I called LIFE. Haaaa haaaa….
Your dad’s message is beautiful! And if that is how you were taught and raised I am not surprised that you do not recognize the feelings I am referring to. You are a wonderful example that there is another option of living and relating to work in a more enjoyable, positive way! Way to go!!
Unfortunately, I am not the only one who feels this away. Just judging by the amount of Facebook message that spill out every Monday with sad looking cats and then again on Friday with dancing cats, I am not alone. We are one of the generations that have grown up holding Money as priority, not our own well being. (Hence, the world in a disastrous state problems.) Now so many of us are stopping and questioning why we are doing certain things. Messages just like your dad’s are inspiring little glimmers of hope for us. But it’s the HOW to go about it that many, like myself, need now. I have figured out a great deal about myself moving towards the HOW. I gained confidence, courage and love. It’s just something I need to do with this life time. And hopefully one day I will be able to support others through this transition as well.
Thank you for your encouragement! I will totally check out those books.
Thanks to Jennifer for the booktips!
Just what i needed!
I recognize the feeling. Might be part of your being a HSP. You have more information to process after work.
When you are doing things that you get energized by in a sustaining envrionment, it might feel different. Creative people need jobs they can be creative in, or as you were doing in the beginning: work three days and be creative in your free time.
I must say, since i work for myself, I can work very hard for days and days.
I can be creative, have all my energy for myself and my work and can be as flexible as i need to.
Sleep a little longer when tired, work a little longer when inspired, enjoy a sunny afternoon by working on my laptop in the garden and making the most of a rainy day.
You just find the balance that fits for you! That's what i learned from my experiences.
Me myself i am studying to be a schoolteacher one day, but i know it will be in a parttime job, because I am such an intense person that I need to recover more and have time to do nothing and be creative.
Once you can accept that, it's easier. There is nothing wrong with what you need to be happy.
Just go for your happiness!
Or course there are people who can work five or six days in the week. I hear them say they don't know waht else tot do with theri time. That is okay for them. They are not you.
I'm really sorry you feel this way about your job. I feel like there must be some passion you have that you can turn into a career... like my dad always told me, "When you do something you love, you never work a day in your life." I know just what he means because I am a professional singer, so I enjoy my job so much, it doesn't feel like a job--- it is a vocation, a calling. However, I wasn't making enough $$$ to fully support myself and the lifestyle I want with just my singing after my partner left me in May, so that's why my goal for the 100 Day Reality Challenge is to open a Wellness Center on the first floor of my home. "The Science of Getting Rich" by Wallace Wattles really inspired me to set this goal for myself. Also "The Little Money Bible" by Stuart Wilde was also an inspiration to me. There are audio versions of these books on youtube.
