Confessions of a Workaholic


I am a self-proclaimed workaholic. I am currently working as a cashier at my local Walmart I actually really love my job. I don’t know how to explain it but I just love working. It makes me feel good about myself. It gives me a goal, something to work towards. Also, money. Who doesn’t like money?

I have been able to buy myself a lot more things. I am my own sugar daddy now. I don’t need anyone else. I am self-sufficient. It’s the most rewarding feeling in the world.

The only problem is that I am always working. I am tapping 40 hours a week. I have no time to do the things I love like blogging. I am honestly so exhausted when I come home that I just go straight to bed typically. If I finish early I just bum around till it’s acceptable to go sleep.

I really want to be this obsessed with my blog. My goal in life is to be able to blog full time. I want to pour everything I have into my work. As I said, workaholic.

I am promising myself to take at least an hour out of my day to dedicate my time to writing blog posts. I love it so why not do it more often? Why can’t I be this obsessed with blogging as I am with being a cashier?

The only answer I can come up with is that it takes time to get into a roll of things. I didn’t love my job when I first started because I was confused and scared. Maybe low key I’m having the same problems here. I am confused and not sure of myself yet.

That’s something that I’m going to have to work on. The only way to get better is to try and try again. Post more often. Put myself out there. That’s very scary for me. I hate being in other people’s faces when it comes to my work but maybe that’s just the push I need to keep going. I need the encouragement I get at work. I have clients tell me all the time that I am just a ray of light and their favorite cashier or that I made their day better just by being so positive. (Not to brag or anything)

I should probably wrap up this little ramble. I will try and make an effort to do more of what I love. That sounds so strange to say but I’m sure I’m not the only one that has this problem. It should be everyone’s goal to do what makes them happy and do it every day.
