I work as high level executive in a management position. I work in a very faced paced environment where multitasking anywhere from 10-20 demanding projects at any one time is the norm. I also help oversee a staff of almost 20. Sometimes there are long hours (12-15 hour days) and on very rare occasion I might work from home. Needless to say, I work hard. I realize that my job is one that isn’t for everyone but I do love my job and I respect the organization. I love the collaboration and diversity of projects that I work on. Plus, I get to meet a lot of interesting people and be part of many interesting things. The job is rewarding. We might have a lot going on in the office but we also try to have fun in the process. There is never a dull moment!
I also have many interests and hobbies and wish I had more time to enjoy them all. I am convinced that I will never be bored in retirement although retirement is still far off for me and the number of years I have left to work is still in double digits. In the meantime, I will enjoy this extra day off that the Labor Day holiday affords me. You should, too! I hope your day involves working less and playing more….whatever that may mean for you.
If anyone needs me today you can find me at the mall. I will be out shopping to take advantage of all the sales…
Happy holiday Monday. xoxo, V.
