I saw a post by a friend of mine, John Kim (@theangrytherapist), that said there is work and there is play and that the goal should be to bring those as close to each other as possible. Basically, not having work on one end of the spectrum and play on the far opposite side. We all know that work is something we HAVE to do and play is something we WANT to do. So if we are able to pull those closer together so the distance between the "have to" and "want to" shrinks, then it begs that you will have a much happier life. This equation works in ALL areas of your life. If you are working out and you are loving what you are doing, then it's not so hard to go to the gym. If you are parenting and loving everything about what you get to do with your kids, then it makes the tough times with them not as bad because you love the WHOLE thing. Or at your job, if you are excited that you get to this particular activity, then it makes those boring days not as bad. And when you love to be there, you are so much more productive. There are two ways to make this shrink happen: 1) you either change the scenario, or 2) or change the way you view it. To change the scene in the gym you can get a new routine, go to a new gym, or train for a particular activity that you really want to. To change the view, it's about thinking that you are grateful that you GET to train. I know I'm much busier than I have been in the past so I don't get to train like I would like to. With your kids, it would be pretty tough to change your kids so it's about changing how you see the issue. When we parent, we usually do it off how we were parented or figuring how we would react if we acted a particular way. Our kids our their own individuals so the plan you think will work may need to be changed based on your child. Changing the view would be to always be grateful that you get to be a parent with all the ups and downs. Many don't even get the chance. With your job, if you don't like it then find a new one. But quit being all pissed about it. That doesn't fix or do anything. Otherwise, change the way you see it. The fact that you get to serve people food to make their day better with their family or you get to make things that make people happier is AWESOME! Be grateful you have a job. Many don't even have the chance. When the distance is diminished between work and play, you are happier. And you and the ability to make it so!:)
