Why am I feeling so lackluster? My job is my main source of stress and discontent. I used to love it, but the industry is changing so much and the job itself has evolved into something less than it was. There isn’t enough that is inspiring me or motivating me the way it once did. The constant cycle of layoffs every six months does nothing to keep anyone motivated either. I genuinely feel the lack of creativity and innovation is the primary reason I feel so disappointed and let down. Whenever you attempt to make something that will provide a more enriching experience for customers you can’t get the budget approved to do so. “Do more with less!” is the corporate world motto these days.
- How do I fill the creative void in my life?
- If I have a new creative outlet, will that be enough to offset the way I’m feeling about my job?
- Is it time for me to find a new job?
- If a new job is the answer, what will I do?
I have a lot to be grateful for too. It isn’t all bad. So what do I love about where I am at today?
I love where I live and I love my home. I feel like it’s the right fit for me. I have put a lot of tender love and care into making my house a haven. This makes me feel good. I don’t want to leave any of this.
I love my friends and family. They inspire me. They make me laugh; we have good times together. They give me support when I need it. I wouldn’t want to leave any of them.
Where do I go from here?
Ugggh, questions, questions, questions, I need to make some decisions!
