Current Job Struggles | Adulting is Hard

8:43 AM



Lately, my work life has been kicking my butt. It's not in the way where you're extremely busy but love your job, it's in the way of I'm extremely busy, physically exhausted and frustrated, which is leaving me mentally drained and exhausted.

I'm at that crossroad in life where I'm looking for a career that I will love and that will exercise my skills and will teach me new and valuable ones I can apply to bigger and better careers opportunities.

I've never been the type to know what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. To be completely honest, thinking about it terrified me as a child. It mostly terrified me because it's supposed to be for the rest of my life and that's a long time, right?! But I wish there was someone to ask me, "what do you enjoy to do best?" and go from there because it was never put to me that way.

Now, fast-forward to 2016 and I'm in my twenties trying to see where I fit. I've attended post-secondary, twice, but still struggled to find where I fit best and how to get a career I want and enjoy. I have ideas of where I want to be and where I see myself career-wise but it's still difficult because now it's finding my way there.

I know I'm not the only one that is or has struggled with this and I'm sure eventually, if I work hard for it, I'll get to where I want to be but until than my work life is something I'm struggling with. It's 8 hours of my day that I can see myself doing something else and straightening my skills or learning new skills. However, I'm looking and trying to move forward, looking for new opportunities and hoping some new prospects are coming my way.

But until then, I don't think I'll be reading as much because, most the times, when I pick up the book I'm reading I start to fall asleep. I'm that physically tired all the time with my current situation...

Guys, I want to do something I love. I don't want my job to only to be a job. I don't want to have the mind set as my job being my paychecks, which ultimately leads to living an independent life. Work is where we all spend the most of our time so, I want to find a career that I love to do and will love going to every morning.

I'm crossing my fingers and working really hard to find a company and a position that will make me feel important and that will make me feel that I'm moving in the right direction to my future.

I'm thinking about making this a series about my career/adult journey. 'd love to talk to you guys in the comments below! Let me know what you think and/or your own struggles with finding a job or growing up! If you've been/are going through something similar or know someone who's going through a similar situation I'd love to chat with you.
