…5am. The sound of the alarm is invading the house. My body is not very responsive. I am sure it must be Sunday. One glance at the phone and I realise it is Monday again. The weekends always seem to fly past. Before I know it the reality called Monday kicks in again and I drag myself out of bed. The thought of work doesn’t excite me. All too often I think that there must be more to life than going to a job 5 days a week…
On average most of us end up spending 30% at work or in other words 25-30 years equivalent. Considering that this is a huge chunk of a lifetime it is alarming to think that most of us are not happy at work. We go to a job that we do not enjoy or even hate, every single day. We keep wishing it was the weekend. We keep wishing our life away.
Life is meant to be enjoyed. After all we do not know how much time we get on this gorgeous planet or how much time we get to spend doing the things that really light us up. What if there was a way to do work that makes you come alive? What if there was work that would make you feel whole once again? What if there was work that would make you feel balanced? We need to realise that no one is going to come and save us. It is up to each of us to take our life in our hands and take responsibility for what lies ahead.
As Khalil Gibran put it “Work is Love made Visible”.
