If the first thing you do when you open your eyes in the morning and let out a huge UGH at the thought of going back to "that place" one more day, then you are spiritually deflated! There is a very good chance your job is slowly sucking the life out of you and in essence killing your spirit. There is also a good chance it is killing your body.
I worked at a job I dreaded from the first day I started. Two and a half years later I found myself at the same job lying on the floor staring up at some paramedics because I was experiencing what I thought could possibly be a heart attack. I found out later in the ER it was an anxiety attack. So what did I do? I returned to work the very next day. Why? Because I cared for the people that worked there and didn't want them to have to deal with my workload. We were all over-worked and over-stressed. I ignored the signs that I should find a different job. Occasionally I looked for work elsewhere, but then we would have a "good day" at work and I'd stop looking, convincing myself it wasn't that bad. The day I returned to work my HR Manager called me into her office and asked why was I at work when clearly I needed a day off. We talked for a while and after listening to me and my excuses why I couldn't quit, she told me "You need to go home and tell your husband you need to quit this job." She knew, she could see it. I was shocked an HR Manager would actually say those words to an employee. I thought their job was to keep positions filled, not create vacancies. She told me I was not the same person I was when I started working there. My patience level was gone, my temper was my constant companion and my complaining never stopped. All of these behaviors were completely out of character from the happy-go-lucky person they had hired to begin with. I was absolutely 100% spiritually deflated!
I went home and told my husband my HR Manager told me I need to quit, and that is exactly what I intended to do. At first he was resistant to the thought, mostly due to finances, but after talking for a few hours, at the end of our conversation he told me to go in the next day and give my notice. He agreed this job was not worth me losing my health, physically or spiritually. He said it was time for me to do what makes me happy, to "find myself", and to write my book.
Our plan may not be the same as your plan. But making a plan of escape could be what you need. I became a Life Coach so I could help others with their plan. To help them discover what it is they want to do and to narrow that path down. I also became certified to facilitate personality workshops that help you to discover your gifts and talents, what your values are, what are your areas of challenge and what sort of work you would be best suited for. (See True Colors tab above) Being on the right career path is inspiring, motivating and energizing! It is allowing your spirit to inflate, to breathe in deeply and exhale slowly. It brings a level of calmness and extreme excitement all at the same time. Doing your life work is gaining your life back!
