Do What You Love


I believe that most parents would like it for their children to go for the career path that has a clear view of a 'promising future' and plus with big salary. Well, my parents are like that and to their pleasure, I just started that type of a career they wanted me to have.

But I hate it. Or maybe I'm just not used to it yet?

It's the first time in my life that I don't feel the love in the thing I do. I may have complained all the time during my study days and my past career as an assistant architect but by the time I changed to the 'promising future' career, I realized that I actually enjoyed my previous job. Though I had overtime almost everyday and my salary was lower, I definitely loved those days way better.

I now realize that money can't actually buy you happiness. What's the point to earn more money but you have to wake up every morning feeling shitty to do things you don't enjoy doing. To me, it's not worth it at all.

Now that I'm living that life, I'm advising you, especially youngsters who are yet to start your working life, find something that you love first and strive to have that as your career, definitely not the other way around. I used to advise people that you just need a job and you can slowly love the job though you don't like it at first. No, I find it's so hard to try to love your job.

But of course, though it's hard, we really should make an effort to try to love the job we're working on and that's what I'm currently trying to do. Since it's our responsibility, we also must do our job diligently with integrity no matter how much we hate it. Hopefully, we'll be fine and start enjoying the work we love in the future, eventually.

And that's the end of me complaining on my current life as the first post after so long hiatus teehee.

Till then,
Lya.
