In a world where all jobs paid the same salary that would cover all your family needs, would you still be happy with what you do now or would you have chosen a different profession?
Of course not!
I would take the job of Kollel Man!
where all jobs paid the same salary
Unless all jobs are equally difficult to train for and unless all jobs are equally difficult to perform, how would it ever arise that all jobs are equally compensated? Why should they be?
this tread is more like looking back than looking into the future.
it’s very unhealthy to say i should have done this or that, unless there is a point to it.
if we’re not changing professions, who cares what we would or could have done.
Never mind… post not needed anymore. 🙂
I love my job 🙂
Though I don’t define myself as a person by it.
No, of course not. You just use it as your username. (Unless you’re not really a nurse?)
I would pick my primary avocation, that of incredible Ema. No regrets, no looking back, no need for greater “fulfillment,” in my life. I had a paid profession prior to having children, and a part-time one when they were all in school. But the one that gave me the greatest pleasure (and sometimes the greatest aggravation) was and continues to be, mother and now grandmother of the last few years. Nothing, but nothing beats that for me.
