What a crazy past week it was... But, I'm damn glad to be home, see the wifey and the pup, and be back in my routine with work. "I'm glad to be back to work." Those are actual thoughts in my skull... and it never fails. Whenever I'm gone, I look forward to being back.
And THAT makes me stop dead in my tracks and remember 4 years ago, running my balls off to slide into that 3% raise before they gave it to the next guy... ...chasing tiny bits of added freedom in the form of a few extra dollars in a paycheck... ...even though it meant paying for them with more hours, energy, and stress.
I looked at my boss and they were stressed as hell. Their boss was even more stressed out. And the "big boss" had so much bullshit to chew on everyday it was nuts.
They all just seemed... "old." That showed me that if I were to continue on in that way... doing the same thing, chasing the same 3%, and surrounding myself with the same stress... I was NEVER going to catch a glimpse of the lifestyle that I truly wanted.
I didn't want stress. I wanted belly laughs.
I didn't want autopilot. I wanted adventure.
I didn't want dress codes. I wanted tattoos.
I didn't want overtime. I wanted ALL the time.
By the way, I have no beef with a 9-5 job.
I have beef with the widespread acceptance of working tirelessly for years and being told your hour of time is worth dogshit when in the meantime you could have spent that 10 years building something seriously great.
I'm 4 years into this philosophy. And while I've seen it do nothing but bring awesomeness into my life... I've absolutely got a long way to go.
But if I spend this 10 years like THIS, in an opportunity like the one I found, I am gonna have a shitload more to show for it than a few 3% raises.
And that time is gonna pass anyway.
So... adventure, belly laughs, and being consistently paid for my effort... Fuck yeah, I'm glad to be back to work. #tothetop
