This is something I write about a lot – when is it better to pick time, or happiness over money?
Recently, my girlfriend chose “happiness”. I’ve never been prouder. The thing that was bringing her money (her job) was making her unhappy.
The easy decision is to stay, and keep the money coming in. It gives you security.
But what if the source of money doesn’t make you happy? What if it makes you really unhappy?
Choose happiness. Money will come again.
This now also gives her not only happiness, but time to do what she wants – time to find a source of income that doesn’t mean she’s unhappy. In the end, this will bring a happier household, and that’s all I want.
I think it might be difficult, and we might be looking into tough times, but I’m sure we will survive. If I know that every day my darling wakes up thinking:
“I Don’t Want to Go To Work”
Then the money can’t be worth it. I know everyone has days where they feel like that, but you should never feel like it on every working day.
To anyone who is not happy: try to become happier by getting rid of that which doesn’t make you happy. If you think that is not possible, find something else to take that time to make you happy.
Sorry for any lack of personal finance stuff today, I just felt this was very important.
