Work & Hamster Wheels

Sometimes it feels like you’re on the hamster wheel. Around and around. Around and around. But going nowhere. Running. Pushing. Striving. But ending up in the same place.

But here’s the thing about hamster wheels. They’re a treadmill. They’re training you. They’re training your body. Your muscles are getting stronger. Your endurance is growing. Your lungs and heart and mind are strengthening.

So when it feels like you’re going nowhere, just remember that you’re growing with every step. Every breath. Every hard fought turn around that wheel is building you up, making you better and stronger and more prepared for the next challenge ahead.

Your time in the wheel is never wasted.
