Free Your Mind

In the last couple of months, I’ve shared with you my struggles at my new workplace. Because of these difficulties, I’ve experienced a lot of changes in my life. I find that I am tired all the time, constantly eating, feel drained during the week. Coming from a job I loved deeply, this is a drastic change for me. To be honest, it has become difficult for me to get through the week.

I start my weeks with great despair. I count up every day and every minute until the weekend. I come to work with a complete lack of strength and desire to be there. So, when giving it some thought, can this approach help change the way that I feel?

Coming into work with the attitude and approach I posses, only keeps me away from truly fitting in or enjoying my time there. I shut myself down and held myself back. I am not truly present in my new workplace, as I constantly wish to not be there. So, I decided it was time to take action.

I made myself swear that I would keep my mind open. I promised myself I wouldn’t count the days until the weekend, but live each day to its fullest. We have to cease every day instead of hoping it would just end. We have to let go of the fears and hesitations, and live our lives.

So, as En Vogue sang: “free your mind, and the rest will follow.”
