My family and I own a restaurant, dont assume too quick, for now it just means more bills till years of hard work pays off.
I just got a call, my family had a meeting I couldnt attend to because of engaments I had.
They want me to step down from general manager to take over all banquets, in my world.. that means more then a full time job and about triple the pay. Which should be good news, withought hesitation I said "no thank you"
Im not weathly, Im comfortable. Of course the thought of making more money ( way more)sounds appealing, but to what extent?
The way my life is now, I can take good care of my kids and have time for them.( and they will be gone before I know it)
I can train and race.
I have a roof over my head and food on the table.
Im happy and well balanced between making time for work and making time for life and no money can buy that.
If I had accepted I would be very well off money wise but that cant buy how i feel to be able to be home after school for my kids or how I feel when Im fortunate enough to be outside doing the things I love.
My family thinks I'm making the biggest mistake.... I, in the other hand, feel like I finally understand what life should be about.
