Monday Madness-Going Back to WORK

"All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." -- Walt Disney

I know the weekends go by so fast while the work week seems to go by so slow. There's a saying that you never have to work a day in your life if you like what you do. To me that means no dead-end jobs, well unless you like working there of course. But many people go to college, then graduate and when they get out of school there are no jobs for them so they settle for less. 

The job market is hard nowadays and people are working at places just to get by and make money, but it's not what they went to school for so they're not loving what they do. In other cases there are people who studied a certain major at school but when they finally get the job they have been waiting for they find out that job is not for them and they stay stuck there.

While reading an article about careers on I came across this:
"Money rarely buys happiness but it can buy job satisfaction—people making under $15,000 per year reported the lowest satisfaction while those making more than $50,000 per year said they were the most satisfied."

I look at it like this: a full-time worker spends 40 hours or more at work which is the majority of your day at this job. If you constantly complain about it or you're unhappy with what you do, change it! Don't be stuck at some place where you spend all of your time because money can't buy happiness and you'll be miserable at work. This unhappiness may start showing to your co-workers and boss, this might eventually show in your work performance and you might even bring an attitude home from work.

This is interesting as well:
 "People living in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania are the most disgruntled (less than 41 percent say they are satisfied with their current job), and people living in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico were most likely to whistle while they work (56 percent reported being satisfied)."

Seems like the tri-state has a problem with their careers. Do what you love so you don't have to roll over in bed on a Monday morning, press snooze on the alarm clock and think... "ughhhh I don't want to go in today, I hate that place!" because your happiness should come first. =)


  1. I'm not going to lie to you. If I found a job making $15,000 I would probably cry and thank JESUS for all that money. I'd be RICH! Find me a job, Lord!!
