As I live this life (especially this year), I’m beginning to realize that I don’t want to be a workaholic.
When I was younger, I admired powerful “career women”. These women were like boss ladies, doing good work, independent, smart and intelligent and were resilient. They were busy women that seemed to do very important work. I wanted that for myself. However, I’m learning that I really don’t want to be a workaholic.
Lately, I’ve been working a lot, spending a good number of hours on my laptop. Younger me would be happy that I’m looking like some independent woman building her career and is busy and all of those things busy career women do.
I’m realizing more and more that I want to work less. Yes, I need the money, I’d like to see progress in my career and have meaningful achievements but I really don’t want to be busy to experience life.
I like everything about being an independent, focused woman who excels in her career, I just don’t want the workaholic life and I see that most successful women actually worked hard at first and some still work hard. It’s kinda like the world we live in.
Realizing this, I have decided to plan towards a better work life that lets me have the time I want and still make good bucks.
By God’s grace, it is achievable, because tbh, I want to do other things in my life other than work. I want a relaxed work life and if possible retire in my 30s and focus on doing other things I’d love to do, for God, for me, for others and for the world.
Remember, be a light in your space 💫
