This post hit the bullseye on how I feel on my life. It’s been quite a few times I mentioned I felt stifled working a 9am – 6pm job. And I couldn’t quite figure out why. Was it because I didn’t like my job, or was it because I felt my time could be put to better use? Many times it’s the latter. When I mean better use of time, it isn’t in terms of money, it’s more of I want to have time to spend it with people who matter, to work on things I like to do – and if that earns me money, then great!
But the practical side of me will go, hey, that doesn’t pay the bills. And so I stick on to a full-time job, and wonder why I do what I do. For now, I’ve accepted that even though it eats into time, it provides opportunities ($$$$) to do things that I want to.
I agree with this from the post – “Life is more about making time to do the things that inspire, create happiness, and most of all, give a sense of accomplishment.”
I guess that’s why I bake, I learnt the guitar, I want to sing, I want to try out different crafts – it makes me happy, gives a sense of accomplishment, and gives me hope that someday I can use it to make something out of it. Many things get me going hey – maybe I should try that! Because believe me, I detest being stuck in the routine or sleeping, eating and working.
Life is so much more than that ;)
