The title of this post is a quote from my favourite book, ‘The Prophet’ by Kahlil Gibran. Now that I’ve completed a CELTA course and made a career change, I not only understand it, but am living it.
I’m getting paid much less as a teacher than in my previous job in HR. This would normally be a cause for unhappiness, but with my salary I’m covering my travel, Baby Girl’s childcare and have a bit of change left over, and that’s ok. Yes, it’s less than half what I had before but it’s still more than many people out there and for that I feel fortunate. Best of all, I enjoy getting up early and going work. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not all smiles all the time but I arrive and leave feeling good about life. That feeling is worth soooo much and I’m so blessed to be able experience it.
Thanks for reading x
