My parents were kind enough to watch Charles for me this weekend. It was nice to be able to get out of the house and be around adults, without having to worry about a toddler running around. I spent most of the weekend at sports bars with my friends. However, as I spent time with them, one thing struck me. A common topic of conversation was their hatred for their jobs. They sat there and gripped about their workload, their boss and the monotony of their daily work life. I tried to act sympathetic and listen. But it only reinforced in my head how blessed I am when it comes to my job.
I am a freelance graphic designer working with clients in the gaming industry such as WilliamHill, BGO Casino, Leovegas and bitcoin casino Drake Casino. I truly enjoy what I do and I take great pride in it. Listening to all of my friends talk badly about their jobs and their dissatisfaction with their jobs made me realize what a rarity this is.
There are so many reasons I really love my job. First and foremost, I am my own boss. I do not have anyone who tells me what to do or how to do it. I believe this makes a huge difference in my satisfaction level with my employment. Yes, I do have clients I have to please, but ultimately, it is my responsibility to figure out how to do that.
Secondly, what I do is seen by millions of people. Everyone who visits a website where my graphics are displayed will see my work. That is truly satisfying to me. I think it makes a difference to know that you are not doing something that no one will see or acknowledge. At least it does for me.
The last reason I love my job so much is because I am doing something I truly enjoy. I love designing graphics and playing on my computer to make my designs come to life. I am not sitting behind a desk pushing papers, listening to customer complaints or typing mindless drivel into a computer. I realize that many people don’t love their job, but I love mine and I am so glad I followed my heart and went to school for what I loved. I can now earn a living doing what I love and I’m loving it.
