I am very lucky because I actually really like my job. True, there are some days when I go home bummed out because things didn't go the way I had planned. And yet, since I began this job eight months ago I have not woken up in the morning wishing I didn't have to go to work. As my boyfriend pointed out to me, there is no one in the work place who has it in for another member of staff. Everyone gets along well and behaves in a professional manner.
Job satisfaction is something that is really important to me. It is not something I have had before this current job. Some people would tell me that my job is beneath me because of my high level of education - hell, very few receptionists have two bachelor degrees and a post-graduate degree on the way. But I don't care. A job is not beneath you if you enjoy it.
I love the fact that I can smile up at life and embrace it with open arms. Don't agree with me? That's okay, I pooh-pooh your derision and skip merrily along my way.
