6 Ways to Stop Hating Your Job

If you’ve followed me for a while (and I love you for that) you’ll know that I have a job other than this pretty, shiny, website. I work overnights (10pm-7am) at a Walmart, stocking whatever they want me to stock. (Not glamorous, I know.) I’ve maintained that I enjoy my job and plan to continue to work there for the foreseeable future. There was a small hitch in that plan. I began to hate my job.

It feels “wrong”. The only time I actually spend any significant amount of time relaxing in bed is when I am in the depths of depression. Which tells me that it’s one of the ways I heal.
