I LOVE my job!... Do you?

I work at a retail store, and I have a lot of customers coming in and asking for my help, sometimes they ask simple questions like "where can i find the top that mannequin is wearing?" or " do you have this in a medium"? but for the most part I have people asking me for fashion advice "what do you think would look good with this skirt?" or my favorite question of all "Can you help me pick out some cute outfits?" O-M-G that is the best thing anyone at work can ask me because I just go crazy!
Helping my customers pick out outfits is pretty much like when I was little and I used to play with my barbies and dressed them up. It was so much fun back them but it's soooo much more fun right now! I have a much bigger selection of clothes, shoes and jewelry to choose from PLUS my "dolls" are life size now :)

So where am I getting at with this? Make sure that what you are doing is something that you love doing, after all  “If you find a job you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.” So just ask yourself, “What am I good at that I enjoy doing?” and then go do it. For some, it’s writing, drawing, or even solving math problems (yeah, I know weird but it's true) As for myself I know that I am really good at helping others.

Why ask yourself that question? well because according to an article posted by "Loving what you do also makes you much more committed to your career. You won’t neglect it because you don’t mind getting up to go to work every day....When you love the career you have, you’ll be a much healthier person. You won’t suffer from the dread of working every day but will, instead, approach it enthusiastically.... You’ll be amazed of the impact loving what you do will have on your life." (To read the full article please click here )

After reading this I hope you all stop for a second and think about what you are doing with your life, do you enjoy doing what you do at work? Are you happy with the career path you have chosen? If the answer is no or if you don't even know just think about what you think is not working for you, what changes you think you can/should make and go for it. After all we only live once, and I'm sure you don't want to spend your life at a place where you are not happy or doing something you don't enjoy. 


  1. I love this blog! I think it's my favorite so far and I agree 100% I love my job and because of that I am continuing on to study business!! I enjoy reading your blogs keep it up! -Lynette

  2. Aw I completely agree, definitely do something you love! I sure felt that way about retail when I first started...give it a few years and you might change your mind haha. Although who knows, maybe you will still love it! I do love helping out customers with outfits and stuff, but I definitely got over the competitive world of retail, the company I worked for paid too little and I worked too much overtime without being paid for it, it sucked! I did love it at the start though. I work an office job for a company that appreciates me now, and I will never go back!!! Haha. I wish you luck in the future with retail - keep doing something you love! xo

  3. Sounds interesting :) Nice blog check out mine!
