Good article. It's always good to be reminded to appreciate what you have, and appreciate your own efforts. I've heard it said that you can't always expect to feel happy, but you can find fulfillment in a life well lived.

I definitely have felt that loneliness and tedium at the jobs I've had. A big part of it for me is lack of meaningful challenge and lack of feeling of belonging. As many challenges as I will face once I'm home with children of my own, I don't think those particular ones will be a big problem.
