I’ve had a career related epiphany lately. I was in the midst of whining about having too many different responsibilities and wondering how I was ever going to balance competing interests and needs. Then it hit me. When I fret about wearing too many hats, it means I have gainful employment and I have many interesting things on my task list. There have been times – and not too far in the past – where I did not have either.
The path to contentment is gratititude for what is good in any situation. Will that sense of gratitiude slip from the top of my mind from time-to-time? Of course. But my October resolution is to try and keep my mind focused on what is good and joyful in life. (Like the little guy in the hats!)
