Time to stop running?

Rarely in my life have I felt content with what I have. Over the years it was running after a better job, better pay, a better home, more self esteem… I finally feel I am at a point in life where I can stop and take a minute to absorb what I have. When I do stop and look, I have this feeling of content and satiation that is hard to describe. I feel I have achieved in some sense what it takes to be happy.

For years I kept my resume ready and updated to be sent at a moment’s notice. No job was good enough no pay good enough. I was always on the lookout for the next best thing. For probably the first time in my life when recruiters call, I surprise myself by saying that I am not interested or available. There is an enormous sense of relief and freedom uttering those words.

It is not that I have a perfect job or the pay I want but I am happy with what I have and in a sense that is all that is needed.

  1. Consider yourself lucky, being content and happy at what you do is the best state you could ask for. As for me, I am happy with my job and the pay it brings me, but I would be happier if I could do something I enjoy more than an IT job. It means starting all over again and at the moment I couldnt afford it.
