Nearly 2 years ago, I quit my overwhelming corporate job to create a working life that was more fulfilling, rewarding and inspiring for me. I’m proud to say I have since achieved that goal – through ToGetHer Further I have helped numerous women to regain control of their own working lives, and find (or create) work that works for them. But I seem to have forgotten something.
Just as I realised all those years ago that I had somehow forgotten to include happiness in my definition of success, I now seem to have found that I’ve left “fun” and “play” out of my definition of fulfilling!
My work is so rewarding that I have to remind myself to get up from my desk and move as my joints begin to seize.
My work is so inspiring that I soak it all up and more, on my never-ending quest for personal development fulfilment.
My work is….
It’s still work.
No matter how rewarding, inspiring, meaningful or fulfilling it is, at the end of the day, it is still work.
It is not fun, in the general definition of the term.
It is not play, as we know it to be and feel.
I seem to have lost my sense of fun and play.
And I don’t know where I left it.
Time to rediscover it.
