Work/Life Synergy

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

So I've been working for these awful people for a few months. When I say awful, I'm talking about people who tell me daily that in this economy they would have people lining up to do this work for them for free... and I'm an attorney, okay? They were paying me less than I made in my first job out of law school because they said I wasn't established here and didn't know anyone.

Anyway, I finally quit and my last day was last week. This week they're calling me daily asking me to come in to do this or that. It's great because they're finally having to acknowledge exactly how much I was doing for them. I can go in on my terms, and they actually have to thank me for what I'm doing.

The big revelation for me is that as worried as I am about making bills, I am a much happier person when I am not dealing every day with people telling me what an idiot/loser/money drain I am. I'm actually very good at what I do and am really excited to get to help people solve their legal problems on my own. In the mere five days since my last official day there, my eating and exercising are already back on track -- being more in control of my work has benefits beyond the obvious.
