Yep, you heard that correctly…I love my job.
Ironically, I’m not even talking about my job as an actress or model. Those ‘jobs’ come and go and, while I do love them, they’re far from consistent or reliable. Nope, I’m talking about my other job…
Monday night was the annual Christmas Party for the restaurant where I work. It’s something that we look forward to all year long and we definitely do it big. There was a party bus (to the location), there was music, there was an open bar, there was food, and there was a lot of dancing. It was amazing.
I cannot even begin to tell you how thankful I am for this job. Sure, I’m “just a waitress” but I love it. Maybe it’s having the opportunity to meet and engage with new people every day, maybe it’s the constant insanity that keeps me on my toes, or maybe it’s that I have the most amazing managers and coworkers known to man. Whatever the reason, I’m lucky and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
Is this my forever career? No. But you better believe I’m going to enjoy myself while I’m there.
I’m a huge advocate for working- no matter what kind of job it is. Sitting around and waiting for the phone to ring or waiting for the ‘perfect’ career opportunity is only setting yourself up for disappointment. Work always creates more work- it may be different than you had imagined, but that “different” might be even better. Every job is an opportunity to grow, to meet new people, and to learn things about yourself that you didn’t know before. The Universe has a divine plan that we can’t fully control. So, find a job that you enjoy and stick with it. Your hard work will pay off in the end.
Here’s to loving what you do every single day…
