love what you do – do what you love
Often the Hashtag #lovemyjob is related to sarcasm, but I wanna state, once for more, that I really do love my job. Absolutely and truly. I wake up in the morning before the alarm goes off. I love going to work and spending time with my ambitious and supporting colleagues. I love the tasks I have, the new ideas we share, the things I learn and that challenge me. Every single day. And YES! Sometimes I am very surprised about that fact myself! But it was always my dream to work exactly at that company, doing exactly what I am doing right now. Sometimes I can´t believe it myself, that I actually made it. Made it to where I always wanted to be.
When people ask me what I do for work, I get a thrive in my voice and can´t stop talking about what I love about my job. What I do? I work at an event/communications agency and yes there are extra hours and often it is exhausting. But I can say – from the bottom of my heart – that I wouldn´t wanna have a different job. Thinking about that fact makes me thankful and a little bit proud of myself too. Right now I wouldn´t wanna change a thing, but we all know, that this could change 😉
What I wanna say to you is: People who are unhappy with their situation and do not like what they do – please take a second and think about it. You are spending a looooooooot of time of your life working and working and working – and that’s a pretty good reason to do something you like 😉
For me it was and is still always important to have a job that challenges me and gives me the opportunity to develop, personally as well as work related. To grow, to learn and to be able to share my own ideas. I always knew I wanted to work in communications and/or events, projectmanagement, in the are of sports… so ask yourself what you like and try to find a job in that area/field – around that idea.
Doing what you like is freedom, liking what you do is happiness.
