Here’s a little secret: here at The Gloss, most of use are doing what we love to do, workwise. (I don’t actually have hard data on that, but if that’s not true for anyone, who are you, and why would you write if you hate it?) I, for one, consider myself pretty lucky to get the chance to do what I want to do for a living.

But I appreciate it more — much more — having suffered through jobs that I did not particularly care for (hate is such a strong word…). There were the retail years, the waitressing years, and of course, the nonprofit years. I learned something during all of those jobs, but mostly, I learned that I didn’t want to be doing any of them.

So, what about you? Are you doing what you love to do, or do you have your eyes on the prize — a prize that happens to be located in a different field?
