The Birds Are Chirping

Written by Sharon Bondurant 4/23/13

It is a beautiful morning.  The birds are chirping, and there is a crisp breeze in the air.  You awake to what should be a fantastic day.  But wait, it is MONDAY, and the only thing on your mind is that long commute, the mad rush to get out of the house, and then the 8+ hours that you have to endure at your “work”.  You start to think about all the “work” that you have been buried under, the lack of support, the crazy hours, and small amount of satisfaction that you now get from it.  Things have definitely changed.

Sound familiar?  This is a hard place to be.  We all are there at some point, and most of the time, you are able to fix what isn’t working or circumstances change that make the situation better.  But, sometimes it doesn’t get any better.  Some people accept that and believe they don’t have a choice to change the situation.  However, I am here to tell you that you do have the power to make a change for the better, to reach beyond where you are right now, and truly be happy in your work life (which directly affects your personal life).  Life is too short…and the birds are chirping.  What are you going to do today?
