Another Day at Work

Another Day at Work

We’re just prisoners of our wishes and ambitions; walking in circles while searching for an ending to our journey. Thus, we forget the road of life, where every second counts. And yet, we waste time in places we don’t like, doing things we don’t want to do.

I was a member of humanity’s productive forces, and as such, I can share my perspective. I used to be an employee who had to cover long shifts, repeating endless tasks. And it was a hard struggle to fight against the forces of nature, to find a friend with whom one could have unforgettable experiences.

I don’t know when the destructive path we are taking became the reason to exist.

It’s there anyone out there forcing us to follow that road?

We miss be blind while falling on an endless abyss, disliking every second of existence. Trying to enjoy the stuff we don’t need and won’t give us happiness; following someone else’s goals. Life has turned unimportant.

Stop feeling sorry for yourself and try walking without a penny in your pocket, and look for a way to survive. Forget, if you stop thinking about loneliness you won’t have to feel it. After all, we’re just like you, and if you’re willing to give love, you’ll receive even more.

And maybe, imagining a world where you’re free it’s hard. But if we don’t try, we’ll be slaves to our need of not having any needs.

      If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.

    Truly said, dreams are to be pursued. But many a times dreams are throttled to a level beyond redemption. Any suggestions??

    It seems that the hardest part is identifying that the way of life and understanding of it is the cause of issue, if we turn from this path before us then we finally will see the many other directions and paths we can travel. But that first step, looking elsewhere for meaning, is so hard.

    It is trite remark – if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life. Somehow I don’t think love and work can exist together for longer. I meant the work that pays. We often love the work we do, don’t we? But the ones that pay us for a living aren’t really lovable jobs. They are monotonous and it is fine as long as we get some balance in life – to keep that job and love separate. When that work starts to overshadow everything else in our lives, then it becomes a problem. I don’t mind working at a place where I get enough money to keep other things I like to do, in check. I mean just for few hours a day. But it is confusing. I am still learning.
