“How do you feel about the work that you do each day? Do you appreciate all that work provides you, or do you wish you were somewhere else doing something else? Do you find ways to appreciate others, or do you feel like an outsider who doesn’t fit in? Are you frustrated all day long because your efforts are underpaid and unacknowledged, or do you focus on giving the best of yourself?
I am not recommending that you resign yourself to a job in which you are unappreciated or overwhelmed. By all means, seek out something more meaningful. But in the meantime, experiment with adopting a grateful perspective to see how it changes your experience. This choice is within your control, and since you’re already at work, do you really want to add a burden of bitterness and suffering to your experience?
