This is awesome, Cali.
I truly admire people who love their jobs and work.
Unfortunately, most of my working career, I've been in situations that were not very conductive to worker health or satisfaction, and while the jobs themselves could have been enjoyable, impossible demands that kept rising made almost everyone at my places of employment rather miserable.
And there were few other alternatives, so everyone just kept working at jobs they didn't like in order to support their families.
I have to admit a little bit of envy for people who either land jobs they love or are able to enjoy whatever they do, and would prefer to keep on working at their jobs indefinitely.
Sadly, I can't say that I am one of them, and now thatI believe the window of having my own family has long past (for both personal and health reasons), my biggest dream is to someday cut back my working hours so that I can hopefully participate in the ministry and volunteer opportunities that usually conflict with my work schedule.
We're all built differently and have different dreams--I totally admire those who want to work the rest of their lives, but I've been dreaming of retirement (so I could do volunteer work instead) ever since I started working at 11!
