I would like to preface this post by saying how blessed that in the current economic environment, I HAVE a job. Unemployment is one of my biggest fears in life; not just financially, but because work is where we get a huge portion of our sense of purpose. But Good Grief, staying positive while working in current Corporate America is tough sometimes (for various boring reasons).
NOTE: I did not write this post at work!
I was brought up to work and work hard, but thought work was just a place to go for 8 hours and earn a paycheck. The concept of actually "liking" your job is so foreign to me. I think the people who actually do what they WANT to do and enjoy it are the luckiest people on the planet. The older I get, the more I think about this concept. How much is a paycheck really worth? In the 50+ hours a week that I work, do I provide and bring something useful good into the world? Again, with the recent struggles in the economy, I realize these thoughts are a luxury I am blessed to be able to have. It's just lately I am realizing that liking what you do for a living and having inner balance and happiness in your life do go hand and hand.
So, for all those out there having issues finding, keeping, or even loving your jobs, I hope these songs can bring you some catharsis and temporary relief.
