When we were little kids, we all looked forward to a special day in school — Career Day! Our parents might come in and talk about their jobs, or maybe even a firefighter or a police officer would make an appearance and tell us what they did all day long. We thought to ourselves, “Wow! I’m going to have an exciting job when I grow up, too!”
Then, we got a little older. We went to college and before we knew it, we had a spouse and children, all who depend on us for everything they need, and so we settled into a job we don’t like just to pay the bills. Or maybe we just keep bouncing from job to job hoping we land in one that we don’t hate.
