"Those who love money will never have enough. How absurd to think that wealth brings true happiness!" ~ Ecclesiastes 5:10
I'm experiencing a transition period in my life. Should I continue to work for my dad or should I find a new job? I'm very grateful to have a job during these tough economic times, but you can't put a price on a peace of mind. It all comes down to I'm not happy in my situation.
My father is a wealthy man, but his money isn't my money, nor do I want his money. I want to do things on my own without the help of my parents. It's tough being a single mother, but I've sacrificed my own ambitions for the past four years to help build my dad's company.
Now I want to focus on what makes ME happy. My job doesn't provide any fulfillment or challenge to my daily routine. It's all repetitive and to be quite frank, I haven't been the best employee due to my lack of enthusiasm toward my job.
It's not about the money. My financial situation is pretty stable, it's about my goals, dreams, aspirations in life, and how I want to achieve them on my own.
There are a few other issues that contribute to my decision to want to quit my job and try something new, but for the most part, this is the reason why. The money has kept me there this long, but now it isn't enough.
We all come to a fork in the road, and we all have to make a decision. Whether this is the best decision for me or not financially doesn't matter to me at this moment. This is the best decision for to venture out and try something new. To take a risk and see if I succeed at it.
This is apart of my transisiton process in this new phase of my life. I feel as if I'm shedding my old skin. I'm sure many of you can relate.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
