Everyone reaches multiple Cross roads in their life and I feel like I reached another one. I had a huge moment of self discovery yesterday when I fully realized my unhealthy relationship with work and my unrealistic standards put on some people around me. It has created an environment where I appear selfish when I am not. It has caused me to be offended when other people at work are simply doing their jobs.
My wife asked me what I would do if I could do anything and the first thing that popped into my head was “write”. I am not the best writer in the world but it has been a dream of mine since I was a child. I have always dreamed about my words being read all over the world. Even with this dream I feel like I never have time. I get on this blog and write down my thoughts like a psuedo journal and then I disappear for weeks or months. So my question to myself is, “what do I want to write?”
While I ponder this question I must acknowledge the enjoyment I get from my current job as an automotive technician. I have worked very hard to reach the level security and tenure I am at. This said, my mental state will likely improve if I can find a way to work less and write more.
What would you do if money wasn’t needed and you could do anything?
