You are not your job
Post on 18-Oct-2014
Do you still remember that FEELING you had when you started your first job?
The WORLD is my oyster. NOTHING can bring me down
You would have your own apartment.
Your own car
I have personally always wanted a scooter
And you would have FREEDOM
And probably most importantly, MONEY
Then, REALITY kicks in
Work isnt what you thought it was going to beIt is actually a lot of ppt, excel, and honestly, keeping your desk company
And it doesnt help that peoplehound you
And hound you
And HOUND you
And when you make a MISTAKE, you GUILT TRIP yourself
You IDIOT, why didnt you check that?
You fall into a DARK and MISERABLE place
WHAT is the meaning of life?
Is there ANYTHING that comes after this?
Am I only worth the SUM of my mistakes?
Am I DOOMED to become BFFs with PPT?
DARN YOU MICROSOFT
I was walking to work todaySLOUCHED AND UPSET
When I BUMPED into an old college friend
SUDDENLY, I was the old ME againI forgot that I could be HAPPY, SNARKY, CONFIDENT
So THIS is the old ME that I had lost!
When you realize that you have let your WORRIES bring you down,it is actually a strangely LIBERATING experience
I am STRONG. I am AWESOME.And I am MORE than anyone THINKS I am.
If I dont like how theyve defined meI am going to DEFINE myself
After all, life isnt just about WORKAnd its not just about PLAYThats a Ferris wheel by the way
Its about MEAnd the PEOPLE
And the THINGSThat I care MOST about
If I approach everything with a POSITIVE OUTLOOKI can be EVERYTHING I want to be
So after my brief catharsis, I decided to delay going into work for ten minutes to treat myself to a latte
Thanks for reading
