When I was unhappy with my work, I was not the only person that suffered. My husband, Tim had to endure my silent Sundays when I was in a funk because Monday meant a return to that job I did not enjoy and felt no purpose for.
After settling for the uncertainty and disengagement for a long time, Tim inspired me to get up off of my seat of do-nothing and take control of my career and my life. It took a lot of soul-searching and a lot of trial and error, but it was well worth it.
Now, when we go on vacation to snorkel in the caves of Mexico or drive ATVs through the forest, I am simply disappointed to return to real-life, but not depressed because I have work that is engaging and fulfilling.
