On Having A Job You Love

Hello!!!! I’m thrilled to be uploading a new Blog post for you guys today and I have a few stored up my sleeve for this week too!

Now before I begin, I want to preface this post as possibly sounding spoiled, unrealistic, and maybe even ignorant in some eyes. If you disagree with what I have to say, we can agree to disagree – that’s fine!

I currently work as a Sales Associate at Urban Outfitters, a trendy, chain retail store at one of the local malls. For me, this is a job that someone my age is normally working. I’d say for the most part, people my age are working minimum wage jobs and earning themselves some spending money. I am more than ok with my job at Urban, in fact I’d even go as far as to say I enjoy it. The environment is fun, co-workers are friendly and the pay is decent. This is the type of job that I am more than ok with working – at this time in my life.

However, as I continue my college studies and work toward a B.S and whatever else, I am looking at my future career with some pretty high expectations.

Like I said, to some, this might sound spoiled, unrealistic and even ignorant; but I am a firm believer in “choosing a job you love, and never having to work a day in your life”.

I’ve watched way too many adults in my life dread going to their place of work every. single. morning. and so I can’t help but hope my future is different.

I haven’t settled on the exact occupation for me, just yet. I don’t have a job description in mind, or a position that I’m grinding for. I just know that whatever I end up doing, I need it to be something that I genuinely enjoy doing.

With that being said, I know it takes time to get to that job, if ever. I know that as a fresh college graduate jobs won’t be handed to me and that I can’t just sit around turning down jobs that I don’t “feel like doing”. But I also know that I can’t spend the better half of my life doing something everyday that I can’t stand, and can’t wait to get away from. It’s just not worth it.

So, I hope at least some people found a positive takeaway from this post, and maybe even felt inspired to never settle. And for those who didn’t, I just hope you can see where I’m coming from.

 

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you’re ready for some new posts!

XOX,

Sydney ❤

  1. You are wise beyond your years – not spoiled and certainly not unrealistic. You know you will have to work toward your dream job, you know it won’t just be magically handed to you, and you are savvy enough to have learned what you don’t want to do from the adults in your life. Keep exploring, keep dreaming and believe in yourself always! Follow that wonderful saying “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”
