A valuable lesson from a horrible job!

When I was in college, I took a summer job polishing buttons for 9 hours a day. I hated that job soooo much, that it was the driving force to get me to finish college and get my teaching degree. Wow, did I ever appreciate my education! I do believe we learn more from our negative experiences than our positive ones

Money is in the hands of Hashem

Being a grandmother I regret not having learning/done a job I would like. Hashem gives us qualities and potential. Why waste them? Study what you love, what you are good at: learn it and you will certainly be an asset wherever you go: because you love what you are doing. Money is not going to make you happy on the long run even if it calms the nerves...

my experience

I was in a job last year that I absolutely hated for very good reasons, and I could under no circumstances back out. The fact was, I did sign a contract for one year and my boss held me quite responsible to stick to my side of the contract. When I broached the subject, my boss began cursing me out and yelling that she will never forgive me if I left. I stayed because, truthfully, I did make a commitment. This experience has taught me a lot and I am now investigating much more into any future job I might take, so that I don't get burned twice.

Stop And Think...

Maybe one should stop and think "Who am I?" What do I want out of life?" "What are my goals?" etc. before making choices that are so permanent.
