You have stressed valuing your career and job quite a lot. But because of the millions of recent job resignations, so many places of employment are looking for employees. Why are you advocating hanging on to one’s job? I have a young teenager who is a graduating student and I’m unsure how to encourage their enthusiasm for a job.
First of all, I work passionately and joyfully in my calling of being a homemaker. I have only one rule for a family member living in our home: Either contribute to others through a paid job or as a full-time volunteer, be a student, or be learning a new skill. It would be energy-draining to all concerned for a non-contributor to live in our home. I am rather passionate about saving and thoughtful money management. The currency of the universe is energy. One learns to manage energy by learning to manage money.
Now back to the job markets at large: The millions of resignations are exactly why one should value one’s employment. Many industries large and small, will be forced to close down due to inflation and lack of employees. This will create skyrocketing unemployment – a very good reason to make oneself an indispensable employee. Besides all the above reasons, being part of rendering service to the community or one’s family is a boost for one’s morale and self-confidence during a depressing time.
