So this morning (wrote this Friday morning) I went back to the usual routine bringing the kids to school.
Ate Champee invited me to play a game called would you rather… It’s a game where one will ask a question about two things and you have to choose what you want and explain.
So for the first question I asked Ate Champee, “Would you rather have a stinky breath or a smelly kili kili?” (Silly huh?!) – she just laughed.
So it was her turn and asked me – “Would you rather…
have a job that you like but without pay
have a job you don’t like but with a super high pay?”
I was shocked as to where she got this question. I was expecting a sillier question but found myself answering based on the values I hold.
My answer: a job I liked even without pay. And she was even more shocked. A few weeks ago, she was asking a scenario that if a was a fireman and I’m responding to a burning building where there’s an old lady, a dog and one million dollar bag, she asked me who will I be saving…. and then I jokingly always replied, of course the One Million Dollar bag 🙂
With my answer, I guess she understood what my real values are… that doing the things you love can make you happy and contented. It makes work not a work but rather a vocation and a fulfilment of the purpose of what God called you.
