I have a day job working in an office in London. There are things about my day job that I love. And things about it that I hate. At times I think that I'll end up doing the same thing for years. At other times I feel ready to pack it all in at a moment's notice. At a time like this I know that I should be incredibly grateful for having a job. After a manic few days in the office, and the prospect of an incredibly difficult few weeks to come at work I find myself sat at home wondering what to do.
There are so many things in life that I love – many of which I write about here – but sadly very few of them will pay the mortgage. Should I risk everything financially to pursue things like this, or should I play it all safe and concentrate on the day job?
Or, should I just find a balance between the two? Concentrate on the day job from 9 till 5 and then make the most of life the rest of the time? Sadly, work doesn't always allow itself to be bound by hours on the clock. But, no one is going to write on my gravestone that I spent long hours in the office.
Please excuse my infrequent posts whilst I try and get work back in its box!
