I’ve usually been very good at whatever job I’ve had.  I was the consistent one, the detail-oriented one, the one that people came to for answers, the one that trained other people.  I’ve always enjoyed that role.

Ever since I hurt my back, it’s not like that anymore.  I’ve since worked jobs that I’ve had no previous experience in, and while I’ve held my own (except for one job that I totally hated), I’m not that exceptional person anymore.  I hate being mediocre.

But being good always came easy – it doesn’t seem to any more.

It’s kind of depressing.

Is this what happens when you get old?

I need to either get really good at what I do now or find something that I can excel at again.

But I guess that’s easier said than done…  sigh3
