That Sucks…

Kid Flash says the darndest things!

Hubby is taking the boys swimming tomorrow afternoon.  Kid Flash asked me, “Mommy, are you coming?”  I quickly replied, “No, I have to work.”  His response, “That sucks!  You need a job where you get summers off.”

As I started to contemplate his brilliant thought I realized that I enjoy my current job and the flexibility it offers.  While I don’t  get summers off, I do get:

● to work from home

● to travel (just enough to avoid cabin fever) periodically

● to create my own schedule

● to help physicians make important career decisions

● to meet and work with great people

● to earn a great salary

So, in my opinion, my job does NOT suck just because I don’t get summers off.  There are tradeoffs in life.  And I would much rather work during the summer if that means I get to experience a job I enjoy.  We have to learn how to make the best of every situation or change it.  But, complaining is not an option.

If your job sucks, what are you going to do about it?  Or how can you make the best of your job situation until you find something better?

Until next time-

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. (Philippians 4:8 NIV)

God’s best-

Alexis
