よろしくお願いします

I am 35 years old. For the last 10 years, I've been working at the same company, gradually working my way up to senior management. I have a large, high-performing team, and we typically hit all of our department goals. We have a great reputation, and are seen as the team that "gets it done" every single time.

Here's the thing -- my job is too easy. I do what I'm supposed to do, and I do it well, but it's not challenging. Most days drag on for what feels like forever. I don't hate my job at all, but I'm not in love with it.

I've thought about leaving many times. I've entertained other offers, but the problem is other companies can't touch my salary, so I always back away from the conversation with potential employers, because I don't want to give up the lifestyle to which I've become accustomed.

I've talked to my boss about expanding my responsibilities, and he's obliged, but anything he's given me is never challenging for long. I've also gone back to take professional development courses at my local university to teach me something new, but it doesn't solve my day-to-day boredom.

My husband says I should be grateful that I have a high-paying job that is not stressful anymore, and should settle. That feels wrong to me -- I like having challenging days that push me out of my comfort zone, and I feel like I'm too young for another 30 years of this.

Should I suck it up and collect my check?

can't touch my salaryとはどういうことでしょうか?あと、collect my checkは「小切手を集める」?なぜ小切手なのでしょうか?よろしくお願いします

ANo.1

can't touch my salary
10年働く中、他の会社からの(転職の仕事面で良い)誘いがいくつかあり仕事面では興味があったのだが、”給与面では魅力がなかった”。
給与に手をつけない=給与は同じか問題にされないみたいなことでしょう。

collect my check
これら全てのことを飲み込んで、”仕事を続ける”べきか?(まだ人生は長いのに)
アメリカでは給与はcheckで支払われてきたので、pay check(給与)みたいな表現が今でも使われます。それがあるのでcheckを集める=給料を貰う=現職を続けるという意味だと思います。
