... The phrase I probably say the most while at work. I'm just waiting for the day when I answer my home/cell phone this way.
I honestly do. Are there stressful and frustrating moments? Of course. But that's going to be true of every job in existence.
It's been more of an adjustment than I thought it would be going from a service missionary to an employee. There's more details I need to know and understand. I feel an overall greater sense of responsibility/pressure than I did as a service missionary. It also took some time getting used to a different schedule. (Didn't help that they kept changing my schedule. But thankfully they figured out a schedule that's been consistent for a few weeks now. Better yet- I don't think it's changing anytime soon... yay!!)
However, I still absolutely adore all the people I work with (including the security guard mentioned above). During the weekend I look forward to seeing them again on Monday.
I still love knowing I'm part of an organization that is striving to help people overcome their problems through the gospel.
I love how much I've learned and grown from being there. I know this is where I'm supposed to be and what I'm supposed to be doing with my life at this time. This is exactly what I needed in my break between undergraduate and graduate school.
I love that when I go home at the end of the day, I'm done. There's not another few hours of work still waiting for me when I get home. I don't miss having homework from school. Not in the slightest.
I love how short my commute to work is. Couldn't pick a better location if I tried.
In short I consider myself incredibly blessed by the fact that I actually look forward to going to work each day.
