2 paths

An interesting fork in the road told me a little about myself yesterday. I was deciding between John Maxwell’s leadership course or Gretchen Rubins happiness project. About $100 each, I went with the Happiness Project.
There are factors that don’t mean I choose happiness over leadership skills, like that I can get an John Maxwell book at the library, but I found it interesting none the less.
I do want to lead, and of course I want to be happy, but I think to be a good leader you need to be happy or at least confident.
I also took a job interview, one I probably won’t get, but it is very targeted, I only applied one place, and maybe I will do that moving forward.
My current job is easy, stress free, at least in the most common sense of the word. I have very little to do! That is because the president does not allow my to spend money or make decisions, and he is doing neither so my projects stagnate.
I would regret losing my boss, a good and skilled women I could learn from, if she worked in the same state.
I want to help people and be proud of my work, I want to be respected and grown. Why is that so hard, seems like a goldilocks scenario, and now, if I do change jobs, there will be no way around the stigma of a job hopper. I think I am becoming ok with that.
