As one who is somewhat disenchanted with my teaching work at present, I hover between just putting up with it and actively pursuing something I would enjoy more.
Sometimes I feel like I need to do it so I can empathise with everyone else who hates their jobs… but that just isn’t a good enough reason! I know what it feels like now. Perhaps I need to go get a job I enjoy. I really believe we have a significant amount of control over what we do, if we choose to exercise it. I have always said to people ‘if you don’t like what you are doing then QUIT and find something you do like – (or maybe the order should be find something you do like then
Alternatively we can choose to put up with the frustration of spending our lives doing something we do not enjoy.
Tomorrow I am going to tee up a meeting here in the local community to try and see if I can ‘create’ a job for myself here in Brighton. I can’t say any more than that!
Its a long shot, but if it comes off it’ll be a really suitable role for me.
It might go nowhere… but I always believe you never know if you never ask…
