Bad news, I have to work.

I am not sure about you, but I hate the fact that I have to work all the time. Do not get me wrong, I have had some great jobs, but work is a four letter word no matter how you spell it. I had a job as a professional rock climber for a large amusement park. I climbed and rappelled all day long. I was getting paid for doing what I loved to do. As a college student this was the best job I could have. But, like all jobs, I started to hate it.

Sometimes I get angry with a certain Adam and Eve. Why couldn't they just leave that damn apple alone? Now I have to work all the time. I think that this is where I create way to much of my own anxiety. I have not learned to embrace my judgement and just go about my tolling with a sense of acceptance and joy. I was the kid who watched the school clock like a hawk, wating for that bell to ring so I could get the hell out of that classroom. I have not changed, I can not wait for that last minute of the work week to get out and enjoy my life. I think I need to find the win-win in my toils and be happy with the cool jobs I have. I have noticed that the people that have realized this and embrace their toils do some much better in life. It seems that they are eager to go to work and do their job. I am not sure, but maybe it is just another control issue I have. Maybe I just do not like others telling me when and where I have to be. I would much rather be exploring the world and seeking out those places where man has not been. But instead, I need to work.

It seems to me TB, that the grass has always been greener on the other side. If we were all happy with our working life how then would we appreciate the times we were not working. Without that time clock watching in school how would you have recognised that the time out of school was enjoyable. Life's 'ups' have to be tempered by life's 'downs' for you to appreciate that 'ups' actually exist.

Here is another quote I liked, "Just quit your whining and get your arse back to work" micabarricus

Peajay said...

He has potential to be a funny man your pal Mike, doesn't he TB? :D

Peajay, beware of MicaBarricus...when he and TB team up, there's no stoppin 'em!!!

Oh, and to the topic: work....it's another 4-letter word!!

...can I have some cheese with my whine, please??!!!

Peajay said...

Thanks gogo, I thought MicaBarricus was a formidable one man team already, I daren't think how much more redoubtable they could become as a duo!!
I would have thought both you and TB would know the most about whine having just done the tour!! :D Oh, I remember, you slept through it!! ;)

It is always best if TB and I have a common enemy. Because, if there is not apparent target in front of us we can turn on each other. :)

Anon, Thank you for your post. I am learning, or maybe maturing, to the point where I do not have to always have a "target." I agree with you that this is one of those things that outgoing people tend to do, and I was one of the worst. I have great friends, and wish to keep them, so I am growing so that when there is no target, I can just relax and enjoy the great men and women around me.
