To work is a good thing. To be occupied is better than to not be occupied. Yet sometimes My children have work that they don’t like and that doesn’t make them happy. I would like to say that even with work you don’t like, you can be less unhappy.
When you focus on what you don’t like, it makes you unhappy.
There may be good reason not to like your present work or job. It may well not be the right place for you, not the right work and not the right environment for you. There may be unkindness and folly. I understand this. I do not say you must stay forever where you are unhappy. I do say you can feel better until you move on. While you are still in this job and before you walk off, perhaps you can not mind it so much. Perhaps you can mind it a lot less. Perhaps you can retrieve the worthiness of your work.
When you are on a job that doesn’t make you happy, it will be good if you can look at what you are doing from a bigger perspective. When you are looking at the job itself and only the details of it, you sink deeper into the dreariness of it. Okay, the work you do and the company you are in are not what you dream of, and yet perhaps there is a greater purpose served. What might it be?
What does the company you work for provide for someone who wants it? Who is the end-buyer and how does the product or service serve those who wish to have it? The company you work for must contribute something. Perhaps you legitimately feel that you do not want to serve the employers you work for. Perhaps you can feel better about serving the customers. When you can get your mind off your own displeasure, your work may feel more worthwhile.
Everyone wants to feel worthwhile. You want to, and you deserve to.
If your unhappiness at work is mainly from difficult people you deal with, you do not have to maintain a sense of helplessness. It may really be that nothing you say or do will make any difference. And yet it is possible that your taking yourself out of the equation for a moment can make a difference. When your emotions are kept at bay, perhaps a change in you will open a change in those who are difficult to work with. I say perhaps.
I also say that if you can truly leave some of your charged emotion behind, if you can put your emotion aside for a while, you may well affect a change in the whole dynamics, and your reaction will change. Please know I understand how your making a change can be difficult, yet it is possible that a change in you can make a change in your situation for the benefit of all. A change in you can at the very least benefit you.
I realize that when your shoes are too tight, wearing the same shoes isn’t going to make a difference. And so you can put on different shoes as you go to work, and that will make all the difference in the world. Perhaps even loosening your same shoes can make you more comfortable in your work.
Maybe you don’t have to be unhappy even in an unhappy situation. Maybe you can serve Me whatever situation you happen to be in.
I bless you, and I bless your work. Keep your attention high, beloveds.
