It shouldn’t be about money

 

I wanted to share this video here simply because I believe in the concept of it completly and I think it should be shown to all senior school children as part of their careers advice.

I work as a foster carer, it is far from the best paid job and at times we struggle to make ends meet. I also work a incredible amount of hours for what seems so little pay.

Yet I am rewarded in ways money can never reach. Watching a child grow, feel safe, learn, trust, flourish is simply something no wage could ever replace.

We need to teach our children to look at what makes them happy. To pursue what will fulfil them. Our working life is getting longer so we need to make sure we are doing something we enjoy, something that means something to us.

Life is to short to not reach for your dreams.

It shouldn’t be about money.
