F*ck Monday: Importance
Monday, 29 October 2012
So my monday moan today is more of a debate rather than a moan. As most of my followers would know that I have suffered some long(ish) health issues recently. Everything kind of settled down for a while which was great and came at perfect timing, as I was offered a month long placement at my FAVOURITE magazine. Luckily I was able to complete nearly two weeks until I was hit again with another medical problem.
It was from this that it made me consider what is more important work or my health? And as many people have pointed out that if I didn't have my health then I wouldn't be able to work anyway. I have been getting a lot of people's opinions on this topic and some people wonder why I can't sort out my health as well as working. Now being a born worrier/ stress head, I find that I am always trying to push myself a little harder and constantly think and over think things that happen at work. I also have that woman thing of finding it hard to switch off after work.
I know longer have a part time job as I gave that up so I can focus on interning as my body just refused to cope with both. I am on my second internship like I said and I LOVE my (interning) job - like without exaggerating it would be my idol job. As I became sicker, I worried more that I would miss this opportunity and it would be such an inconvenience.
But thankfully, the company that I work for have said that they will hold my placement for the time being until I feel well enough to resume it, which considering the cut throat attitude of the industry I thought that was really sweet of them. For the first time, I am doing what the doctor orders and putting my health before my career. Hopefully it will pay off in the end.
What would you put first your health or your job??
