If happiness was the world currency, what kind of work would make you rich?

If happiness - PIC

I wrote it. Read it. Actually, read it several times and I am still thinking about this LOADED question. Last year when I was getting my hair ” sun kissed “ ( God forbid that I would ever admit to coloring! ), I was telling Angie, my beloved hair stylist,  how miserable I was at work…. How much I hated my job and needed to make a change. She casually said something that I still think about: ” I have the best job in the world, I love what I do so it doesn’t feel like it is work “…. At that moment I just wanted to start cosmetology school so I could be happy like her…. really!

A couple of months after that hair appointment, the company that I had been working for 8 years got sold. With that, the chance to make a career change pleasantly appeared….. Well, I do have to say, making a career change at 45 is not easy, but not impossible either. This past year was full of ups & downs, challenges and a bunch of lessons. Boy… Have I learned a ton!

I still struggle with the evil, evil choice between TIME X MONEY…..But there are a few things that have never been as clear:  I have never worked so hard, I have never made so little money and never been so happy!

So, as for the answer to the loaded question above….I still don’t have one to share, but I am a day closer to figuring it out…..Meanwhile: I play Power Ball, the prize is at $ 480 Million this week!


PS – No, I did not go to Cosmetolgy School….. Unlike Angie, I do not have her hair stylist talent, dedication and calling…. Besides, I love having good talks and laughs with her every month….. Not to mention: GREAT LOOKING HAIR!!! 🙂
