The cleaning lady at my office told me today "You look tired" and really, I'm not! So ... I must be looking really bad. I thought for a second, here is this sweetheart of a lady who gets to work by 7 am and works a full shift on her feet all day long and then maybe goes to a second job afterward. Surely her life is much harder than mine - I work a 9-5 sitting in an office. Why do I feel and look this way then? Probably because I've had it with this freaking rat race. I thought I saw an exit strategy a few months ago, but now I wonder. It doesn't seem to be as clear as it seemed then and I'm just tired. I feel like I no longer have the stamina to do 9-5 and then come home and work on everything MMG, Blogalicious, B-Link, My Blogalicious. When is the rat race going to end? When am I going to be able to do something that I actually love?
Addendum: I know I'm b!tching and I don't mean to whine, but I'm pretty frustrated by what seems to be lack of control of my life. Today is payday, so I was reminded why I have to keep my day job; but on the other hand, why am I rushing my child to bed at night, after only spending about 2 hours with her, so that I can get back to work? I feel like there's just so much to do and so little time and that this 9-5 is kinda getting in the way. It's time to go out on our own! If you've made that leap, please share how you did it.
