You sit at work day-in and day-out feeling a sense of emptiness and longing for something beyond the office. You tell yourself that working this job is what you are supposed to be doing with your life. Somehow, still, you still can’t accept that this is what it is going to be like until you retire…if you are lucky.
The good news is that there is life outside of the box. You don’t have to be confined to a cubicle or office to be a successful or contributing member of society. Though many people may not grasp the concept of this and, therefore, look down upon you for not pursuing a “real” career, know that you are doing what’s right for you. And you’re probably a whole lot happier and satisfied with your life than they are.
There are so many other opportunities outside of a normal profession that will fill the void it leaves, emotionally, financially and personally. Ingraining a specific profession into your image is the easy way out. True thinkers and achievers maintain a sense of self outside of what they do for a living. You are more than a job. You are a person, a person who has thoughts and feelings that fall outside of a field of knowledge. Remember that.
