Hey yawl. Hope all is well.
I’m sure I’ve written about this before, but it just feels like a thorn in my side!
You know how you work and work, and it still seems like you’re still not working enough? Like no matter how many hours you dedicate to your job, you just can’t seem to make enough. That is especially true if you don’t have a degree or a special talent or personality people are willing to see or engage with. Yep, there are many of us who partake in working a jobs we know are, for the lack of a better word ‘pimpin’ us. Well, that is what it seems to feel like when you get your check. This is especially true if you’ve put in extra time, hoping for time and a half. Then find out all that does is make more taxes come out of your check.
I swear, I get happy just to get disappointed. I’m sure my realist are thinking “If you hate it that much; why not leave?” See the problem with this is, if you leave you have to make sure you have something that is going to give you the same amount, preferably more. Many times that isn’t easy to find. Even if you are able to find something that pays more, most likely it would be hard to get or you’re not qualified.
Long story short, if you want to elevate yourself, you’re going to have to elevate and change your thinking. Only positive and open thinking provokes change.
I know many times life isn’t easy (Mine damn sure isn’t). But once you begin to take more risks and stop being so by the book, it proves to be way more rewarding than you could ever imagined it could.
Like I’ve heard so many times before, “With great struggle comes great reward.”
Be patient your time is coming.
