TITLE: Don't Quit Your Day Job

I find myself in quite the predicament at work right now. I work too hard. I work long hours and I feel sometimes like I am the only one working. I go out of my way to get things done and do things right, and not only what I am responsible for but othersí work as well.
Itís taking too long to get the recognition that I deserve. I donít feel appreciated. How much longer can I go on like this? I am carrying the team.
Move things along a little quicker please. Pay me what I deserve.
I need to keep moving forward. I need to keep growing and learning. But I am learning here. I learn something new every day. Maybe thatís why I stay here. But is this what I want to be learning? Did you ever decide what it is that you want to learn? Is there really anything that you donít want to learn? I donít ever remember deciding on that.
I should feel fortunate to have a job. I am grateful to have a job.
I like the people I work with but Iím not getting paid what Iím worth. I am challenged, put in new situations, new circumstances where Iím forced to learn on the fly, and yet at the same time I feel stagnant. Will I always feel stagnant?
Maybe Iím just burnt out. Maybe Iím jaded. Iím definitely jaded but what does that even mean? Humanitarian aid work is rewarding. Of course helping people every day is rewarding but what of helping yourself. To work for a non-profit is rewarding, to help others is rewarding, but to help yourself you need to make a profit because money makes the world go Ďround, right? Iím amassing a wealth in heaven but what about here on earth, how do I pay my bills now, how do I take care of my family, and at the end of the day meet my needs too.
But do I not have everything I need?
Quite the predicament sure, but itís a predicament Iíve learned to be thankful for, and I wouldnít have it any other way.
