When I first started working, I didn’t like my jobs that much. I just got them because I know they would bring in money. And truthfully, I was really doubtful of what I can do back then, so I made sure the jobs I get require something that I already know, and not something that I’ll need to still learn from. I was that afraid. I guess that’s the reason why I didn’t grow so much during those years, because of that fear. And why I resented my self each and every day that I go to work, because I know I didn’t like what I was doing.
Then I became a WAHM, and I knew that I am going to stick with being one for as long as I can, not only because it pays me so much more than my other previous jobs, but mainly because it allowed me the freedom I never knew of an 8-5 job. It’s gets pretty tiring sometimes, burnout sets in, even. But thinking back, even during the down days, I would never exchange being a WAHM for any other occupation in the world, because in my current field I found something not everyone can confidently and wholeheartedly say: I have found my nirvana, that wonderful space between doing something I love and something that pays well.
I have found the perfect job for me. And I’m really happy. I don’t feel now like I’m just wasting my life making someone else rich, because I work for myself, in my own time and where I choose to. I hope that like me, you’ve also found something to do for a living that makes you happy. If not, well, better start searching. Like the title says, life’s too precious to spend working on something you don’t like.
