I honestly don't care how much money I make, just as long as I am happy and I love what I am doing. Having a job I love is more important to me than making a ton of money. When I help people, it honestly gives me one of the best feelings that money could never replace. Going to work day in and day out and not loving what you do is just not worth it to me. I need a reason, I just can't be, just to be. It's not me, its not who I am. I always need a purpose and if there is not one, then it is just not for me. I changed jobs for school, and have been kicking myself in the ass for doing it because I make less money at the nursing home, BUT I enjoy it so much more than the bank. So in the end of it all, it was a good move, I enjoy my residents and it gives me so much pleasure and pride to take care of them and to be a part of their lives. That is a feeling money could really never give me. I hope one day to be a really great nurse, I want to fight for my patients and give them what they deserve when they are unable to do it for themselves. One day, that day will come. I just have to have patience.
Thanks for listening :)
