How many of you have had a long commute to work? Well, if you have and you enjoyed your job, you probably didn’t mind it. And if you disliked your job, I imaging the commute was most likely hell. To give you some idea on where I’m coming from here, I’ll explain. I was commuting over an hour and a half each way to work. On a packed train that was usually running late on my way home. I had a twelve hour day without working any overtime. Oh, and I did not enjoy my job to put it lightly.
I was in a dead end job, working just to pay the bills. Exhausted, miserable, and quite unhealthy. I felt stuck, and something had to change. So when I lost my job, a day most people dread, I on the other hand was thrilled. I took this as an opportunity to do something with my life. To work on things I truly enjoy, and produce something people could benefit from. Something I actually believed in doing, and could see myself doing it.
And what could be better than working for myself. Well I get to make my own hours, do the job I want, be creative, and…….and it is a lot of work. But I’m accomplishing something, and that is why I’m doing it. It is a complete 180 from what I was doing a few months ago. So I’ll put in the twelve hour days (minus the commute), and ultimately I’ll be better off for it.
