Inspiration

I was deciding whether to take a new job and wondering  if I was considering the change for the right reasons. After reading a article an article in O about being valued at work, I asked myself if i felt valued in my job. I did not! So I got the new position, and I earned my master’s degree – at 40 – while working there. My employer even helped pay for it) One article changed my life. –fancynancycapecod

      • Thanks for the suggestion, personally I opted out of the job market very early in my career, in my late twenties, retraining, going freelance, and then moving countries and becoming self employed. I created my job and lifestyle by imagining it first, always asking myself how do I want to be feel while working, and also where I work. I’m never in the same location, because being confined to one workspace, whether it’s an office isn’t where I’m at my best.

        Acting on the things we discover about ourselves as we journey along, and making them the new normal, is how I’ve done that. Negativity has no chance.
