I didn't want to go to work today. I mean, it was one of those mornings where my deepest, all consuming longing was to stay home. So, I decided to seize the moment.
I have a job. This is a fantastic thing. In a country where so many don't have jobs, I do. Even better, my job lets me afford to live in this place where I can have days that I just want to stay here. I can fill the balcony with plants and have my cats with me.
All day today, I tried to keep my focus on the good things about my job. The pay, the benefits, the life I get to have are all good reasons to not be unhappy to leave my house and go to work.
I finished the day with enough energy to get the final push through from the whole team. I found myself genuinely appreciating not only that I have a job, but appreciating how good I am at it. It'll never be a dream job, but it's certainly worthwhile.
