I’ve been emotionally up and down a lot the past few months and a lot of it has had to do with work. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job, and therein lies the problem.

I’ve always been very passionate about my work, but as I get older and learn more about life, I’m realizing I need to put things into better perspective.

Obsessing about one area of your life is unhealthy. Religion, politics, work, hobbies, or family; obsessing over any of these can lead to anxiety, stress, and dissatisfaction with life.

God has been teaching me lately that I need to put my hope in Him, that I need to understand my joy will never come directly from any of those areas of life I mentioned above, but that it can come from recognizing His work in my life in all of those arena’s.

Right now I need to stop obsessing on what I want out of my job, and start understanding how I’m learning and growing in my job.
