As I shared with you and opened up with you multiple times, I started working at a new job in September of last year. It has been a challenging journey, filled with ups and downs and difficulties. Somehow, despite everything that I found to be wrong in it, I stayed and carried on. See, one of the things that you must understand regarding my job is that it wears you out. It is exhausting. There is so much pressure, intensity, and restlessness in my work, among other things. What I found helpful throughout my year and a half working there is looking forward to something.
Usually, what I’m looking toward to is the weekend. After a long, draining, exhausting week, what I am looking for, as I am sure most of you do as well, is the weekend. During the weekend, I feel like a completely different version of myself. During the weekend, I become a much happier, hopeful, and bright person. During the weekends I am excited to wake up in the morning and start my day, instead of hitting snooze on three alarm clocks and barely getting out of bed. Another bonus that comes along with the weekend is that usually, new albums or singles are dropping on Fridays, and during these times music has been a great help and support for me.
Having something to look forward to, that is soon, can help the time pass quicker and bring you the light at the end of the tunnel. Next week, for example, I am set to go on a week-long vacation. Ever since this plan was finalized, my days have improved tremendously. I am looking forward to this vacation so much, and knowing that it is happening soon, improves my mood and attitude. I am much more relaxed, motivated, and happy in the last few days – and I am sure my time away is the reason why. Having something to look forward to is exciting, and if you, like me, find yourself in a hard patch, I recommend you give it a try. Adjust it to your personal interests and desires, so it’ll suit you.
