I woke up to series of phone calls this morning that I almost cried out in pains cos I needed my sleep. The phone calls coupled with my sister and her loud voice screaming all over the house, just had to practically ruin my perfect dream where I was having fun and sleeping peacefully.
After returning the missed calls I had, I decided to also call my elder brother who had called me while I was still asleep and as I did, he told me about how my niece has been crying all day that she wanted to come and see me and her Grandma. At that instant I felt so loved and special. Quite frankly it's a feeling that I don't get all the time so I'm going to bask in it for awhile.
Since I was already up, I had to go about my other activities and in my to-do list was getting a job. As if I had not had enough, it started to rain and my plans for job hunting had to be postponed.
Now let's get to the main purpose of this article.
Whenever people hear the word job, they are often times concerned with the pay. Infact when someone says I've gotten a new job, the next thing after congratulations (that's if they have courtesy enough to even congratulate you) will be;
Where is the job?
How much do you earn?
Most people only even ask where the job is just so they can ask how much the pay is.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, money in a job is not everything. The first thing I actually consider whenever I go in search of a job is if it would affect my choir rehearsals on Saturday which starts by 5pm and then my Sunday church. It doesn't matter if you'd pay me a million and we can't come to a compromise on how to fix in choir and church then I just conclude that the job is not for me but sometimes I almost want to succumb but I manage to always hold my ground.
Most people make this mistake of going after the money and in the first 2 weeks they are already tired of the job because it's not something they can do.
A job should be something that you enjoy to do. Something that doesn't drain you mentally as well as physically. Do not let the pay attract you and then trap you in a situation where you can't cope.
This is often left in the beginning. Most people even go as far as saying that if the job pays well, they will learn to love it. I'm afraid you either love it or you don't, whether it pays well or not.
It's like a girl who claims to love a rich man but really doesn't. She just wants his money and not him. I need not tell you how such relationships end cos we've seen them well enough to know the story. Therefore, that high paying job you do not love is no different.
I have always had a thing for all the jobs I've ever done, so much that when I want to leave I am missed not because I'm the best, but because I do it with all my heart and I always leave a good mark behind.
People who get promoted and praised are those who enjoy what they do. Take read.cash for example, there are so many dormant account today because those people probably got in because of the incentive to earn and not really because they have the passion for writing.
I won't lie and say that when our friend rusty doesn't visit that passion wanes but if you're here for the bigger picture, you'd definitely pick yourself back up and continue because you know what it means to you unlike other who have given up and left.
All I'm saying is, in our quest for money, we should try to find what we are passionate about and remember that not all jobs are meant for everybody.

I was already feeling so tired and sleepy and not in the mood to write today but all thanks to Bae❤️, who gingered me and even made writing easy by telling me to look inward into my day.
I'm happy cos I went to pick my niece and we have spent the day together. We'll let you see pictures of us tomorrow after church.
Thanks for reading...
