Don't make the boss regret it

I had a realization today, as we were playing with the boys and cleaning the house (purging to make us more limber): As my wife is supporting me at the moment, I suppose she's doing so, in order that I can gain greater satisfaction out of my life than I would, say, if I took a job as barista or book shelver. So... I really ought to do what I can to see to it that I'm actually more satisfied in life than I would be otherwise. Otherwise, what's the point?

So, in my convoluted, baroquely reasoned way, I guess it's high time I just start enjoying where I am, and stop grumbling quite. so. much.

That's all. Go back to your weekend doings.

Whoa! I start a new job on Thursday. Having searched a while, and having been supported whole-heartedly by the spouse, I will be heavily burdened with these words.

Thanks for the reality check. Have a day.

What a great post. These are words to remember in many situations, and I'll keep them in mind. Thanks.

Following up- big fight this weekend when... I forgot your words. I won't do THAT again.

:) I guess there's enough fighting in the world, eh? I mean, what with Palestine, and North Korea, not to mention Iraq and Iran and Afghanistan and Somalia, and Darfur, and...

Domestic tranquility is always a wise choice.
