I often wonder what I would do for a career if I stopped teaching. The stress really gets to me. The disrespectful kids really get to me. The demands placed upon us gets to me. Oh but wait I get my summers off right? Yeah, right after I am done taking classes or attending the many "not mandatory" workshops offered in the county.
Since I started my part time Y job, I have had something to look forward to most days after school. It is so rewarding to hear "thank you" after working with a new member that had no clue about the weight machines or the fitness plan that sounds so easy to follow for them. Yesterday was no exception. Since I had the day off of school, I was representing the Y at the MLK event in our community. I was very excited to get to my table to set everything up and complete the walk in Dr. King's honor. :) I was also very excited about the amount of appointments I had later in the day. I was booked solid from 2-7:)
I got to the church, set everything up and headed to the middle school for the starting point. After completing the walk, headed back to the church for the health fair. This is the second health fair I attended and is an aspect of this job I really love:) I love chatting with people about the Y and all the programs it has to offer. Around 12:30 it was time to clean up my table and head back. I wanted to be prepared for my first appointment. A new member who had just started eating Paleo:) Well hello someone who could relate to my"crazy" style of eating:)
I had copied her recipes and was excited to chat with her about meal ideas:)
I called my hubby who works in the same city and asked if he wanted to meet for lunch. He had just gotten to a good stopping point and was able to go:)
After lunch the rest of the afternoon flew by! I ended up having two cancellations but the people I did chat with her so happy for all the info and time I spent with them. I left the Y so happy that I was able to chat with that many people, not stressed about anything, and looking forward to going back. I am pretty sure that is how someone should feel about their job.
Anyone out there have their dream job? How do you feel when you leave your job at the end of the day?
Looking forward to spin tonight....unless it gets cancelled by all the snow we are expected to get!!!
