Unhappy @ work ..

I am sure that there are a lot of people in this world who don't love what they do, and that is why I decided to write this post. We live our lives based on the choices and decisions we make on a daily bases. Life is what we make it and if we really want to be happy, we need to become aware of this truth and we need to realize that: "No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path." - Buddha
If you are stuck in a job that you hate, you have the power to do something about it, you have the power to allow/ bring happiness back into your life. Being stuck in a job we hate it's not something we want for ourselves, for this will drain us of energy, making us and the many people  we love very unhappy. If you are stuck in a job you hate, here is what you can do about it:
1. If you don't like your job, change it!
Change your job, change your life. Like everything in life, if you don't like your job you can always change it. You can always remove yourself from the situations that are not meaningful nor fulfilling to you. It can be scary I know, but keep in mind that short term pain will bring long term gain and if you are not happy with your job right now you will have to change it because if you don't, you will not be able to be happy with your whole life, and you will become resentful towards yourself and those around you, living a life full of regrets, pain and anger.

Remove yourself from your job if it's not meaningful and fulfilling, remove yourself from your job if you are unhappy with it and trust that there is something out there that you can do better than anyone else, and know that without your work – your meaningful contribution, the world will not be complete. Have some faith in yourself and the very wisdom that created us all, for I am sure nobody was sent here on this planet to be average and stuck in a job they hate.
2. If you can't change your job, change your attitude
Attitude is everything! It's not always easy to just leave a job that we don't like because we all have these earthy responsibilities.
Until we manage to find a job that we love, a job that is meaningful to us, it will be beneficial if we could change our attitude towards our current job and towards our present life. You have no idea how much a positive attitude can help, and how happier we will become the moment we decide to look at the bright side of things, and trust me, there is always a bright side.
3. keep your dreams alive

It s so important to keep our dreams alive, knowing that: "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." - Walt Disney
No matter where you are, no matter how horrible your job may be and no matter how much you hate it, if you manage to keep an eye on the things you want, if you manage to keep an eye on your big, bold and beautiful dreams you will be happy. Every experience has something to teach us and instead of being resentful we can chose to be grateful for the lessons they are helping us master. If you don't like your job, change it and if you can't change it, you can always change your attitude, and that will make all the difference. Let's not complicate our lives and let's not be to harsh on ourselves because if we don't practice love, gentleness and forgiveness towards ourselves, chances are that nobody will. Always look to make the best of everything that happens to you, of what you have and where you are and allow yourself to learn from every experience and every interaction, allow life to make you better not bitter.
