You had a good weekend, relaxed, caught up on the fun part of life. You may have gone to bed last night with that sinking feeling, the knowing that when you get up the next morning, you must go to a job that doesn’t fuel your passion for life.
Total Office Space stuff. And my description describes 70% of our Western Culture. Those of us that still foster the belief that you can’t make money doing something you love.
I won’t be the one lecturing you on this one, because I am part of that 70% myself. I had that sinking feeling last night too, and I woke up wondering where the belief that “you must suffer to survive” really came from.
There are tons of circulating theories that describe this belief:
- You are working for the Man
- Reptilians run the world and you are just a pawn
- The government knows what’s best for you
- It’s your duty to mankind to serve the world from 8 – 5.
All theories, all of which divert our ego-driven mind away from feeling what the hell it really is that’s keeping us from doing what we love, AND making enough money to live, doing it.
Let’s dig deeper to see if we can find it:
- You are afraid that you will starve.
- You’re going to be one of those people living in a cardboard box under a bridge.
- You have a family to feed. Your needs should come last.
- It would be irresponsible to just up and quit a well-paying job.
So many fears hiding in that one Monday-morning let down, eh?
I just named a few, but I’m sure you could add to the list.
So what to do? Do you quit your job now, or drudge on until you kick down the cubicle wall and start defrauding the company by filching pennies at a time? Do you jump and hope for the net? Or do you wait until the pain of work is greater than your fears of starvation?
Yeah. I get it. I can’t make that decision for you, but as someone who has jumped without the net (and there it was) and as someone who has held onto a job way too long, I can see exactly where you are if you are on the fence about what to do.
Here’s my take on it:
On Monday morning, if you intend to go to your job, try looking at it from a different perspective. Is there something that you can focus on about it that can get you through while you spend non-work hours meditating on what your next step is?
Here are a few suggestions on what you could focus on:
- A coworker that makes you laugh
- The opportunity to extend kindnesses to someone on your commute
- Making extra sales so that you can save the excess money for after you jump ship
- Respect for your boss, who has always treated you fairly
- Appreciation for the chance to learn something and get paid for it
It is my hope that you, Lightworker, get to do what makes your heart sing. I hope that you feel the same way for me. Remember to always keep your focus on the vibration of being there, even if you are physically at a job that isn’t creating that for you right now. It’s gotta show up if you do that, so be ready to jump. There’s a net there. I promise.
