There are many things in which we are capable of doing when it comes to work and finding a job. However, is it something you are truly passionate about? One of the greatest lessons I was able to take from this class was to find something that you are passionate about and go with it. Without passion it simply becomes a normal job and there is not much drive that gets you motivated.
One major insight I learned was that keeping our Savior in our business will actually help us. With this we also need to have our spouse with us and be transparent with all the decisions we are making, but also with the Lord. He knows all things and is here to help us when we ask. He wants to bless us with blessings when we are doing what is right. He never leaves us on our own it is up to us to have him by our side. Our spouse is equally important because we don’t want to make major life choices with their opinion or consent. They will be with us for all time and all eternity, so it is our duty that we treat them with the most respect.
Since we are in the topic of family I want to talk about family. We are here on the earth for a reason and that reason is to raise a family and return back to our Heavenly Father. So, when we did a case study talking about family and whether one would pick work over a dance recital it hit me real hard and how neglecting a family can become very normal. But this is not want I want for myself. I want to be able to see my kids grow and even though attending all sporting or other events is not possible doing my very best will be satisfying. I don’t want to end my life wishing I had gotten to know my kids better or see them being raised by other parents. If I am able to be there for my kids I definitely will.
Lastly, enjoy the life you are living. Even though it will be a big rollercoaster and it will be hard at time it is better to know of all the blessings we have even when we are not successful in the way we want. Money is not everything. Family and friends are more important than earning the extra 5 dollars. So, don’t spend your life chasing money because it will ruin all the wonderful things in life.
