    I Am Getting Tired With My Job, I Want To Change But How?

    I am fed up everyday waking up and don't have any eager to do things in my office. I used to be interested in that job but not anymore. I decided to stop working for a while, maybe I will look for another. But sometimes I don't really know what can keep me excited.
