be careful what you wish for. coz you might get it.
i wished for a high paying job. i want to be able to afford starbucks as often as i like. i finally got a job offer, the kind that allows me to get a cup of starbucks every morning.
i declined that offer.
my heart isn’t in the right place. something, so many things actually, about that office isn’t right from the start. i hated it from the get-go. i don’t think the salary will make that feeling go away.
i wished for a job that i want to wake up to. i think i currently have one. despite some bad days – too many for some class- i still think this is a good place for me. the prospect of leaving it is saddening. how could it be the right decision when it makes me blues?
i don’t know if i made the wrong decision. one thing i’m certain is that i didn’t make a bad one.
so now i’m back to square 1. still wishing for a big paycheck but there must be a line between personal and professional. it doesn’t mean that i don’t want to work hard or to commit. i do but i have come to the point where personal life is equally as important as professional one.
and the quest for a decent pay & fulfilling job continues.
thank you all my friends for your input. we don’t always agree but i value your opinion.
