DAILY PROMPT: MONEY FOR NOTHING
If you’re like most of us, you need to earn money by working for a living. Describe your ultimate job. If you’re in your dream job, tell us all about it — what is it that you love? What fulfills you? If you’re not in your dream job, describe for us what your ultimate job would be.
I think I must be getting too old for this whole malarkey.
There’s no perfect job. There’s no perfect anything. We find happiness where we can. We make the best of it, put our best foot forward, look on the bright side – all of that. And for a lot of the time we fool ourselves that it’s all good, and for a lot of the time it is. Life is, after all, what you make it.
But there are days now when I feel…tired. Tired of fooling myself that I have anything to offer, or that I’ll ever write anything worth a damn. Tired of making my finances stretch too thin. Tired of my own company without knowing whose I want. Tired of seeing news stories of selfishness, greed, violence and senseless stupidity. Just…tired.
Today, Pollyanna Rock is sitting on sand.
Tomorrow will be different. Tomorrow I’ll bounce back. Tomorrow I’ll probably regret I posted this piece of self-indulgent whingeing and take it down.
But that’s tomorrow. Today I’ll read a book and pretend it isn’t happening.
