We go to work, we come home, we sleep… and then we go back to work and do the whole thing again. Sometimes this repetitive process can be boring, and a little degrading when you are not doing something that you are passionate about. And sometimes other people around you are also not following their passion in life, and are also bored of the repetitive boringness of the daily duties one is supposed to do in a passionless job.
However, what brings me back to happiness and out of the hamster wheel of a passionless job that keeps spinning is knowing that I have something to look forward to. For me it’s our big trip. It’s knowing that this repetitive, boring, passionless job will bring me to my dream of traveling Europe. And then I feel great! I want to work this passionless job because I know that it’s going to lead to my actual passions. And yes, you have to pay those bills somehow, but there can be a light at the end of the tunnel.
So, keep thinking ahead! You can follow your dreams, you can get out of the wheel of soul-sucking or just plain boring jobs. You just have to decide what you want to do, and then make a plan. And then that passionless soul-sucking job becomes a job that is actually helping fulfill a higher goal. Try it!
