Here's my 2 cents, because I can relate to where you are at and what how you're feeling.
Finding happiness in our lives is very important, but with the advent of our fiat currency system that seems to drive everyone's lives we lose touch
of our humanity, compassion and purpose, because many people trade time just for dollars.
Although dollars can make being miserable more comfortable, at the end of one's life, all they'll have to show for it is the time they traded for
money, missing so much of what life is truly about, and being left with just the misery and money as the milestones for their collective lives.
Money is important, but it shouldn't drive your life unless coupled with some happiness.
I remember working with an engineer years ago, on a job, although he was a dedicated worker and made a very handsome salary he was one of the most
miserable human-beings I've encountered. He was on his 3rd wife, and had a son with her, at the time his son was 9 years old.
I was still single then, and it was more than 25 years ago. I remember this man telling a group of us a story, that absolutely had me question
everything in my life, and what my future would hold for my family life eventually.
It was Father's day, and we were all sitting around having coffee before work (6am) start-up meeting. Mike was his name and he started in with "My
son yesterday asked me if I could take fathers day off, because he wanted to go to the zoo, and I looked at him and said, are you going to pay my
paycheck if I take Father's Day off?"
I honestly was waiting for his punchline, because I thought no one could be that callous, especially a 9 year old child that was asking for just one
day, to spend with his dad, on Father's Day. The song the "Cat's in the Cradle came on the radio later that day and I actually had tears in my eyes.
I vowed then that day that if I ever had a child he/she would be the most important thing in my life, and regardless of what was going on in life they
would be #1.
With that being said children mimic what their parents do, so it's important to be happy in what you are doing and choose a lifestyle that encompasses
character building. Currently our world is in need of people that find peace and happiness within themselves, and are able to be role models for the
Awareness on a global scale is kicking into high gear, and many people are questioning who they are, and what life is really about.
On a sheet one sheet of paper write everything that makes you sad down, then on the other sheet write everything that makes you happy, if you need
more paper then use as many as you like. Do this for 7 days by adding things to your list, and thoughts, eventually you will be able to see what
makes you happy in life, and can focus on a lifestyle/career that encompasses those things you wrote down. It will take some effort on your part.
I think one of the most tragic things in our society is that we put so much emphasis on a career that will make a certain dollar amount, instead of
looking at how we are individually wired, then coming up with a life-plan for ourselves.
I believe our society would be much happier if we were truly honest with ourselves, and used our intuitions to find our life purpose.
I hope my babble was of some comfort, because you have something very precious on your side right now, and that's time, so be kind to yourself, and
Peace and good luck to you,
