So often I hear questions “What do you do for a living” or “How’s the family and kids?“ I hear people say God, I can’t wait until Friday!” as they eagerly count down the days until their work week is over. It’s rare (if ever) that I hear people ask one another if they’re happy. I make it a point to ask this question, because to me, it’s the most important. Over the last two years of being a freelancer, I haven’t been happier. There are downsides, such as not having a hefty paycheck every two weeks or security for that matter. But, there are just some things that I’m unwilling to sacrifice and that is my happiness.
