i have been "stalking" this blog for awhile now, and i have thought every week that i would jump in the mix and start to scribble on sunday. and then i never did...until now. i may not decide to participate every week, so don't hope for more next week. for now, just enjoy this.
prompt #83: money.
what is that they say? money is the root of all evil? or is it money makes the world go round?
isn't it interesting that both of these statements ring true? i can't imagine what my life would be like without the money that i earn. and i can imagine how i could get caught up in having lots money if i ever happened to make more.
good thing i chose to work in social services. i will never be rich and i am okay with that. when i decided that i wanted to work in corrections and then youth corrections, i succumbed to the fact that i will never have more than i need. i'm not going to lie, it would be nice to have more and to be able to do more. but at the same time, i am blessed and fortunate to get by and not stress out too much about money.
i love my job so much that the money doesn't matter all that much to me. i know that i can advance in my career and get raises and promotions, but ultimately i am doing this job because i love what i do and i can't imagine doing anything else.
yes, money does make the world go round and it can be the root of some evil. but wise management and the realization that there are more important things in life have helped me to realize that money is just that, money.
