Changes

I’ve always thought I live a very boring life. I don’t drink alcohol, I don’t smoke. I don’t go out (health issues have always prevented me from doing that), I don’t have (many) friends. I’d love to change the last one, but I’m having trust issues, so that’s very hard.

Yesterday, when we were talking at work about what we did before we came to work there, someone suggested I had led a pretty interesting life up until now. I’m still not sure why she said that. Yes, I have worked in lots of different jobs (cashier, gas station attendant, butcher, cleaner and now a nurse), but does that make my life interesting?

It does make that I can change jobs pretty easily. I fit in in a lot of places. I can easily adjust to new work environments. But does that make me interesting I wonder, or is it just the things I did or do that are interesting?

This post is inspired by today’s Daily Prompt.

    Change is something that catches us off guard sometimes – when we look at our career path, how many of us would have guessed where the path would lead? Certainly not me. Change is change is changing.

    It’s both! You are interesting and what you’ve done has been interesting. The fact that you can so easily, and have so easily, moved from one very different role to another speaks volumes about the type of person you are. To have worked in those interesting positions, you made certain decisions and choices to get there, and it is the reasoning behind those decisions that hint at you being interesting too. Being interesting isn’t always about glim and glammer.
