These days I am trying so hard to not let work define how I feel at the end of each day, but when you spend so much time and energy at work, it is hard not to. One of my fears is that I’ll look back and regret that I spent my 20s stuck at the office slaving away on meaningless paperwork. I try to make a conscious effort to exercise, enjoy my weekends, and spend time with Kelvin in the evenings.
Don’t get me wrong though. I enjoy my job. It gives me purpose, it allows me to learn new things, and it has provided me with the opportunity to meet and work along side inspiring people.
So much of whether you feel like your slaving away or working towards a greater goal is about your outlook on your job, so when I stop enjoying my job, that’s when I know it is time to move on.
