This is my view this Monday morning such a beautiful site who wouldn’t want to wake up to see a view like this every morning? I am blessed to be alive and to write this post, to see all the beauty life puts in our face but some just don’t notice since they live at such a fast pace. I may be seeing this sunrise on my J.O.B’s terms and not my own but hey it’s worth it, since I am taking action to my dreams. I have learned to work for your dreams and not work for others dreams especially if you don’t like what you do.
Waking up at 3am having a 2 hour commute to work; work 10 hours and another 2 hour commute home it can get old quick. Plus the beating you take on a daily it makes you respect the old heads that have been doing this for 10-20 plus years. 3 years have come and gone since I first started first running a roller now as time flew by a Volvo Rock Truck.
To be honest it really doesn’t feel that long since I have been here it feels like just yesterday was my first day. A nervous wreck at a new place and J.O.B I thought I would grow to love but in reality it is the complete opposite. I have gotten to a point where the passion I gone, driving my rock truck is like another chore not something I should love. I like my J.O.B but I definitely don’t love it.
I have learned that “there is way more to life then to just work, get paid, pay bills, and die.”
That may sound a little harsh but it is true we work our lives away stressing about money, a lot of us living paycheck to paycheck not living our lives to the fullest. Most work a J.O.B they dread walking up to every morning but they get comfortable and feel stuck so they stay instead of working towards a life they love.
Life is good life is great you shape your day with your thoughts and actions so make today and every day a good day. Work towards the dreams and life you want nobody else will do it for you. In life there are infinite possibilities so take a leap of faith in your life it will end up being s learning to experience for the better and even a little bad depends on how you look at it.
We have one life live it to the fullest you never know when it will be the end.
Running on all this rock is brutal man. If someone tells you that running a rock truck is nice and comfortable to run don’t believe because that’s a LIE haha.
Now it is comfortable to drive when the surface is nice and smooth if not your back will be hurting like crazy by the end of the day. I won’t even get started on the other equipment like loaders, dozers, ho’s they can be worse.
About a week and a half almost 2weeks I believe they started sun up to sundown about 15-16hours hotel rooms and food included if you stayed.
I get asked “am I going to work those extra hours?” My response “nope I can’t I have to take care of my mom and dogs.”
I was looked at all crazy by others because I was giving up some good money (in their opinion) at the end of the week 4days of 15-16 hours a week plus one 8. About 68 hours so 20hours of OT (roughly).
After beating my body for 10hours 48hours a week is enough for me. It’s crazy what people will do for money whether they need or not people see 15hours of beating their bodies is worth the pain in the end for the time they trade for the little money they get paid. I see it as if they are happy then I am happy for them no hate just respect for them and my pops is one of them hard-working and hey I love him for it.
With that being said my dad has always told me this.
“If you don’t love what you do than why are you still working there? Never get comfortable Find what you love to do and work for yourself be your own boss.
“Love what you do and do what you love.”
He told me this at a young age and he told me this throughout the years. So that’s what I leave for you to think about. An important lesson I have within the last few years finally understood what he meant and working towards it.
Love Life, Live Life remember #nodreamisimpossible
