I had to work in another city yesterday. I stopped by their most beautiful lake even though the weather was cloudy. It is inspiring on many levels. I often day dream about what people are doing on a week day sailing, fishing or jet skiing. Obviously, they are on vacation or independently wealthy! Since I am neither, I had to get back to work.
It got me thinking about why I am so bored with work. I have done this type of nursing for 20 years. I love the creativity of quilting and other projects but it wouldn’t pay the bills I don’t think. So I choose to do both. I am more inspired by creativity, pictures, travel and such. This sitting at an office in front of a computer all day has no excitement or inspiration in it.
Nursing used to be about caring for patients and now all I do is talk on the phone, call in meds and see a few people. It is the best job really but not inspiring. I cannot do hospital work any more because of the lifting etc. Besides I don’t think I could do shift work either.
I think I need to design more quilts!!! And I have a few customers that have quilts for me to long arm so that is very inspiring!!!
Off to work, bills to be paid, retirement to contemplate in many years lol.
