There are so many jobs that can leave you drained and empty. Jobs where you don’t want to get out of bed in the morning because you absolutely hate what you do. Then there are jobs that inspire you and lift you up. These jobs don’t feel like “jobs”, it just what you want to be doing. When you have a job like this you actually want to go to work. You are in early and stay late. When Friday comes you cant wait for Monday to get back to work. This is the kind of situation most could only dream about. I have had the experience of both these situations in my life. My first job was horrible, I found it do be stressful and it drained me of my will to live. I didn’t want to get up in the morning and was frequently sick. When I was there the minutes seemed like hours and I felt trapped. I couldn’t wait till it was time to go. I knew I had to make a change before my quality of life got even worse.
It was then that I decided to get a job as a veterinary assistant. I knew that I loved animals and felt it might be a healthy change for me. I feel that this decision was one of the most important ones I have ever made in my life. My entire experience of life has changed. I get such a fulfilling feeling from knowing that I help these creatures endure what is a stressful time. I have many responsibilities as a vet assistant, including cleaning cages and examination rooms, but i am also responsible for exercising the animals and keeping them company. This means I get to play all day! I sometimes have to pinch myself when I think I’m actually getting paid for this. Also a vet assistants salary is very competitive for a job where you don’t need any certification. If you are unhappy with your current job and enjoy working with animals as opposed to people, consider becoming a veterinary assistant.
