Every time I had the choice I chose lakefront life over all else, much to the dismay of others who made different choices. I have been called a “free spirit” and even “not a team plater” for choosing my life over career.
In the end...
The sun is going to come up in an hour or so, and the lake will be there. The birds are training teir young to fly south, and the water creatures that stay are making preparations for winter. I get to see all that.
My recommendation to you is to enjoy your life. Make it your first priority. Work to live, and let others live to work.
Totally agree, life is too short.
On your death bed you will not be talking about how great the job was.....
