DAY 26: FIRST MONDAY OF DECEMBER

Start of a New Month

I always say the start of a new month officially starts on the first Monday of the month. It’s been 26 days since I decided to leave my job and I’m still trying to figure things out. There’s a lot of pressure from external friends, family, and mentors about finding a job. It’s not like I haven’t been looking but no one really hires around this time being that it’s so close to the holidays.

Finding a job vs finding fulfillment in the work you do has always been a question for the ages. Depending on who you ask it will tell you a lot about their risk level. Of course if you were getting advice from someone that cares about you, most times they will present the option with the less risk because they care about you and want you to be safe. That’s understandable.

Finding fulfillment seems to be this foreign, uncommon, uncharacteristic and impossible word that doesn’t quite exist to most people. When I tell people i’m trying to find work that’s more fulfilling they tend to think it’s unrealistic. And that the notion of work is that it shouldn’t be enjoyable or liked. I wholeheartedly disagree with those people (respectfully I might add).

Today will be spent planning my month ahead and also thinking about January. I’ve been working on HouseofFofanah and now just starting to create a plan for the launch.
