Today on my bus ride home, I overheard a girl talking to a friend about quitting her job. She was a waitress at a great Uptown restaurant and apparently decided to leave unexpectedly. She told her friend that she had found a new job, but wasn't too thrilled with it. The friend replied, "Hey, a job's a job, right?" On my walk home, I really thought about that phrase. When does a job become more than a job? Or even better yet, when does a passion become a career, and people just call it a job?
Currently, I am pursuing a new career at my work. It is not easy, and it has taken me a lot of time and effort (which is why my posts are far and few between). However, I know in the end it will be worth it. I call this next step a career move because it will be the first job that allows me to use my creativity. It is the first job that I am pursuing, not because I need a new job, but because I want this position and I have a passion for it. Whoh...I think I just grew up a little bit. I am chasing a dream, and it feels good.
