Have we honestly considered taking on our career by remaining open and present to what is and what comes to us? Is there a sweet advantage to adopting this outlook for ourselves? Is this a matter of letting go of judgment about what we "should be and do" and comparing ourselves to others?
These are questions that I believe are worthwhile to explore. We owe it to ourselves to live the life we were "meant to," which can only really mean that which leaves us feeling a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment. There is no resentment here nor is there a comparison to any other. It simply is self-love and self-care with a sense of service.
I think when we judge, whether it is ourselves, another, a situation, or a job (as one that is "beneath" us, for example), we lose opportunity and possibility. We may discount viable and even wonderful prospects.
