Two Voices
You can either find happiness in what work you do, or do the work that makes you happy.
Ashley was the Director of Accounts at a big multinational firm. She was a hard working employee. It was a tiring and hectic job, which barely gave her time for herself let alone for her friends and family. She had gotten the job 6 months ago, after being promoted. She had worked really hard to secure the position. She had sacrificed on a portion of her pastimes and activities outside of the workplace.

But last week, due to an improvement in her time management skills, she was able to attend her parents 40th wedding anniversary party. She missed only the first 25 minutes of the anniversary party.
She would only be happy if she was able to take out proper time for her family and friends. So far, it seemed like a difficult task. She had come to the realization that it would probably take her a year more at least to settle in properly, learn her way around her new job.
Another month had passed and she was having difficulties again. It dawned on her one day that her life was kind of a mess and that trying to find happiness in this job would really require her to give up on a lot more than she was willing to. She had just finished going through some accounts of the firm when she checked the time and realized she had missed her lunch break again. She got up from her desk, left her office, headed towards the door and exited the building. She wasn’t just leaving her office behind, she was leaving the feelings of anxiousness and stress that were constantly upon her. She felt free for the first time in a really long time. It was like a fresh start. She wanted to utilize this opportunity in a manner that would make her happy and complete. She knew that the only way to do that would be to pursue her passion for photography even if it took all of her time, energy and money. She would be doing something that left her feeling satisfied and content. She loved clicking the little moments of peoples lives. It gave her this amazing feeling like none other. She knew that it would take her some time to settle but this was something that made her happy and gave her satisfaction.
