i recently read a blog by Lana over at Blog Frog who put the question out there -"Would you commute for a job?"
While i left an answer on her blog i then did some thinking and realized that too many of us not only have a long commute (not me) but are also unhappy at their jobs. So whether you commute or just walk on over to work...the question I ask is - Are you happy? I have had many jobs....some I loved, and some I hated....most of them I took the train into the city - about a 45 minute commute. Which I did not mind....but does it really matter how long you travel if you hate your job.
Of course, i was happiest when i was a SAHM....no commuting involved....rainy days we had picnics on the living room floor......and snow was a delight - we loved playing in it. Then the children grew and college loomed...so back to work I went....but working in a school has afforded me various wonderful days that I love. Even though I am near retirement, I enjoy myself and the people I work with..
From time to time I have been offered jobs which upon thinking it through...have realized I would not be happy.....So...........are you happy?
