what's for you, won't pass you

i used to have this vision that i would climb the corporate ladder and be successful. yes, it's still something i hope to accomplish - however, i feel my passion and motivation for this goal has transferred to my life outside the walls of my humble office. i used to feel it was important to 'live to work', to enjoy your 9 to 5 day job given it is where most of your life resides. i still do believe this to a certain extent, but it isn't the be-all and end-all. sure, it's important to find a sense of joy and accomplishment in the work you do, but in the end - a job is a job. there's a life outside client liaison and number crunching. that's not to say i've given up on that aspect of my life, but rather than spending my life consumed in the narrow minded thoughts of career progression, i want to get out there and enjoy the things i love - family, friends, hobbies, interests and whatnot.

what's for you, won't pass you. go with the flow, live life, and if something is meant to be, then it will come your way. i guess to some people this may seem a lazy or vagabond-like way to live life, but it takes away the unnecessary strain placed in life. more importantly, it allows you to open up your mind to the, otherwise omitted, possibilities and experiences the world has to offer.

Totally understand how you feel, the humdrum of 9 to 5 sometimes gets to me too. I feel that there has to be more than jut climbing the corporate ladder.

Your post is something I have realised since starting full time work. I feel ya!
