Punching in the Timeclock for Health
I have had a decent amount of jobs in my life. Let’s see: I have worked at a coffee shop, a teeny-bopper clothing store; I’ve worked for a rafting company, a bar; I’ve catered, I’ve worked at a fitness club (a few different times!); I have done inside sales, outside sales; I’ve been a director, an intern, and an owner. As I think back to the times when I wondered what in the world I would possibly do with my life, I discovered that there is endless amounts of Unexpected Health to be had…in dead end jobs.
It’s easy to feel bad when you flip from one job to the next. Sometimes, it takes many years–and many jobs–to find our niche. But the Unexpected Health that punches in the timeclock while dabbling in multiple careers is that every job, every skill set, and every duty learned is a building block for our true calling in life…and being groomed to fulfill our utmost potential is healthy.
Today, while talking about a “potential” business opportunity (I use “potential” very loosely, as it is just that!), I found myself seeing how nearly ALL of my past jobs could help propel this business possibility into greatness. All of the times I questioned what I was doing, all of the moments I felt bad–unhealthy–that I was not doing what I thought I “should” be doing, and all of the jobs I worked and left, have all been crucial to my development; they have all been instrumental in creating the person I am today and the career I now have and most importantly….LOVE!
So the next time you feel stuck in a dead end job, remember that where you are right now, today, is exactly where you need to be. Every experience we have is an opportunity to build on another. The job you may be dreading today is preparing you for your dream job in the future. -Until tomorrow, Jaime
