Money doesn’t buy happiness
I used to be a workaholic til last year when I quit a job that was no longer good for my mental well being. I was fortunate to be able to take a few months off to recharge which I needed. I have returned back to work but my focus has shifted as to what is important. It used to be work was always #1 and everything else came after. Now my home life is #1 and work comes 2nd which my boss understands. I’m very fortunate I work for a company that understands this. I’m getting better at balancing work/life. Like the fisherman in this story I make enough to provide for what I need and my family. The true treasure is being present for those important moments and spending time with the important people in my life. As well as making time for myself.
