The goal in life is to not want to run from your reality. Every day doesn’t have to feel like a vacation but no one should hate every day either. I’ve been at that point before and will never ever allow myself to get there again.
That being said, I will do anything I have to for my future kids. So the goal now, before I have any little crumb snatchers running around, is to set myself up for a sustainable life that I will enjoy. A life where I will not have to break the day to day monotony. I like shaking things up and I need a life that allows me to do that.
Do what you have to do now and work your backside off while you can so that you don’t have to later. At that point, you’re working on what you love because you love it and your passion brings you dollars.
Make professional development a priority.
