Wise words for myself.

time for a little reflection. Not that I don't do that every minute of every day already. In fact, I reflect so much, that it would be impossible to blog about every thought, opinion, and revelation, that I have on daily, or weekly basis!
But something came to mind just now. I did something that I shouldn't have because past experience says it's no good for me. !! And I thought I was growing and learning!!
Today at work I noticed I was getting frustrated about answering the phones... it kept ringing, and I didn't want to speak to whoever was on the other end...
Then I realized, I DON'T like answering phones!

And how do I know this as fact and not just some whiny gripe of the day?
Back when I worked at Islands, I remember disliking it over all the other tasks, and even at times when I wasn't working, a sting of unhappiness would arise deep inside of me whenever the ring would carry through the restaurant. An intense emotional sign, for sure. Yet, all this left my mind when I applied for a receptionist work study job at my university. But, hey- this is what I can get for the time being, and it won't always be this way.
But from now on, I promise to myself-- simple tasks will not be so simple if you hate them. Do what you love, and you'll never have to worry. :)
