This week, Amanda & I are sharing what we are thankful for this year.
You’re going to love mine.
When asked “what are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?” most people would say, oh I’m thankful for my family, friends, home, country, etc. While I am most certainly thankful for all of those things, I realized this last week that I was thankful for something that I never really realized I was thankful for…
(At this point, I know you’re thinking, geez! What is it?! Quit beating around the bush.)
Okay, fine. I’m thankful for my job.
I know, I know. You’re thinking I’m doing this in hopes of my bosses seeing this and saying “awww, Kelsie is the best employee ever!” and patting me on the back for a job well done.
Well, you’re thinking would be wrong.
We Aren't Sappy All The Time...
we help with marketing, too!
I’m genuinely thankful for my job because it’s my true passion. I don’t feel like I’m “working” when I’m doing something I love.
What made me realize this is, last week, I had a breaking point. I cried. Actually cried real tears. Anyone who knows me knows I don’t cry and I definitely don’t cry in front of people. And no way would I cry at work!
But yes, I did. I cried. I was so caught up in a project and there was no way I was getting it to work correctly. No one could help, because no one knew how. I had hit a breaking point and I just cried.
I asked myself why on earth I was crying. I wasn’t mad or sad. I was frustrated, yes, but it was beyond that. I realized that the passion behind this certain project far exceeded my ability. And to me, it was worth crying over.
It’s like they say, “choose a job you love and you never have to work a day in your life!”
To me, that couldn’t be more true.
I know, my story is sappy and brown-nosey, but that moment made me realize how thankful I am to be happy in a job I love. Now go enjoy some turkey!
