The Happiness of A Good Day at Office
100 Days of Happiness – Day 28
Every person around me seems to have an expectation of what I should be doing, where I need to be and what I should be earning. Oh yes, they also have an expectation on how I should be spending what I earn too. When I first joined this company, the expectation was that I’d stay there just a year for the experience and then jump to the field I chose by education. It didn’t matter to anyone that at the time, I’d discovered that I loved where I was. And to be honest, it still doesn’t seem to matter either.
The one expectation I’ve had of myself is that I give a hundred percent to what I’m doing. I’ve followed my passion, yes. But every task that has been given to me at work, every project, I’ve given it my best effort, and got a result to my satisfaction, and my boss’s as well.
Happiness is… a day when what work I did turned out exactly the way I wanted it to. And the words of a colleague who was happy that I was putting in that effort to make sure I got the output, knowing that a deadline is around the corner. It has been long since a day has gone by so quickly, lost in the interest of the work I was doing. And I’m glad for it.
