“Children Grow. Women Produce. Some Men Go Work. And Some Go Steal. Everyone’s Got To Make A Living.”
Fewer words of absolute truth have seldom been spoken. It’s entirely true: everyone’s got to make a living, one way or another.
Most of us have 9 to 5’s. Even homeless people pickup cans and cash in bottles. Stay at home Moms have the toughest gig of all. Chicks on welfare in the hood do hair and sell crabs. Folks in the mountains slang OxyContin. Even a lazy assed dude who mooches off women has to expend energy charming these young ladies into helping him stay cozy and unemployed.
It is emphatically true. Everyone’s got to make a living.
But is your job just a way to get paid, or is something larger? Is your job something you really enjoy doing? Does it benefit society? Does your job fulfill some inner need? Is it more than just work, and if not, does it even need to be?
