One of my (always forthright and that’s why I love her even though she’s a republican) co-workers told me yesterday that I don’t smile anymore. I think she’s right. (Also too: I checked in with another co-worker (also republican, not-as-often forthright but she does tell me the troof if I ask) and she confirmed it.) I haz a sad.
Trying to do two jobs well when either one on their own would be enough is no fun. And so, fewer laughs, fewer smiles, more passive-aggressive tones on the phone to clients and a general outbreak of the unhappy’s.
That’s got to change.
I know that leaving is on the horizon for 2012 so I should take some solace in that. My home office is finished and now for the furnishing! I’m definitely excited about that! In fact, most of my joy these days comes from that work. Interesting but not surprising, eh?
I shall ponder (and put into action) ways I can change this. It was definitely a wake-up call (that I already knew and ignored).
Oh, I’m so sorry about this. You seem to feel like you don’t fit in your life, and that’s an awful feeling to have. I remember the exact moment (almost 10 years ago now) that I remembered I didn’t want to be a creative director anymore. I remember where I was, what I was looking at, all of it. It was a Sunday and I just couldn’t let work go and I said, “I’m enjoying this.” It took months for me to get out, and a year and half to find a job that suited me better. It was a sad time. It’s like being in a relationship you know is going to end but you’re stuck sleeping in the same bed with him anyway. Just concentrate on what you’re doing to make your situation better. You/re sad. It’s natural. But you’re not a victim. Be proud of the progress you’re making.
hey – “Light and Love”, the only thing you can control is your attitude. Nothing else. Things happen – people will disappoint, life throws you curve balls, and your “own” approach to it all is within your own control. So turn that frown upside down. Who loves you? :) – the cousin who is forthright and also republican.
