have you ever just woke up one day, and thought to yourself...wtf am i doing? slaving 14 to 16 hour days. 5, 6 sometimes 7 days a week. no time for family. no time to enjoy the small things that matter? my life consisted of getting up at about 545am, dash for a shower, no time to eat, get to work by 730, no lunch break, have to sneak just to be able to go to the bathroom...incredible fast paced job. the stress that comes with it. the health issues that stress causes. no sleeping. high blood pressure. bouts of memory loss. its crazy. what am i doing? 2 weeks ago, i got up from my desk, walked away from my day job. comfortable salary. benefits and perks out the wazoo. a different take home car every week. a good future if i was willing to sacrifice family time and peace. this was my life. what did all this hard work mean? to me, it wasnt worth missing all the little things in life. i would rather not have a paycheck, live humbly and enjoy all those little things we all take for granted. i was working for all the wrong reasons. I can live comfortably on a modest income from another income source i have without the long days and weeks, missing my family and seeing and enjoying life. its hard to understand i know, just makes me who i am. you will not see on my tombstone, I wish i had worked more. my enjoyment does not come from anything that money can buy so no amount i make would ever make my life better. some people measure life by how much they make, others, its not a big deal, and that me. i will dabble in a few things here and there and have a steady income source from music, and i am good with that. Thank God i have a wife who encourages and supports me 110%. carry on.
