We live in an era where finding your dream job – a job that helps you live while simultaneously gives you sense of purpose and fulfillment – is not just a possibility but a right. Where our grandparents took jobs because it was a matter of putting food on the table we now seek jobs that offer more. Do we all find them? I assume not. I’m still searching. It’s on;y in the past 3 years that I finally figured out what I want to be doing with my life. And now, my career goals are competing with my personal goals – kids and living. It’s a good thing I found such an incredible woman to help me with this experience. She, like me, is trying to get these goals in gear as well. As a married couple, our jobs are really important to us becuse we don’t just want jobs, we want careers.
This has been a sensitive subject for me. I’ve worked so hard to clasp that dream job – many times not knowing exactly what that job really was. I feel like I’m inching closer; every day working to discover what it is in a job that will truly make me satisfied. I know I want to be in film and television development; at least that much I know. Will it make me happy? I think so. However . . . its been a struggle to even get here. I think about it often. Today, though, I watched a short film about a New York City diner that really made me smile. It gave me a really spectacular perspective on what it is that makes people happy in their jobs. I just thought I’d share it with you. Happy Monday!
