    I’d rather have a job that I loved that paid just enough.

    What would I do with all that money anyway? Save it for doing stuff I love, later! Like travel and retirement. But even vacations are stressful if you have a stressful job, and as for retirement, by then, you’ll have physical limitations that could stop you from doing a lot of things you are putting off now. Why wait to have a good time?

    I do like having a few bucks for traveling, though. If I could have “just enough” plus a few thou, that would be my choice.

    My reality is, I worked in the crappy, high-paying job for years (sometimes it was OK, other times pure torture). I saved up a “little nest egg” and then quit after adopting my kids. I can’t say my present job is all flowers and sunshine, but it’s not as stressful as the previous one.

    Well, having had both, kinda (none of my jobs paid a *lot*, but some paid me very well), I’d take the job I love with less pay. It’s not worth the stress and aggravation to have a job you hate for an extended period of time. I’ve seen the damage that kind of thing can do.

    And if you’re smart, with that lower-paying job, you can still save enough for a vacation here and there.

    The job I love. The other one isn’t worth all that other crap!

    Less money for a job I loved!!! Me and unhappy don’t go well together. I can easily fall into depression so I have to keep myself as happy as I can be. You can always tell the difference between someone who loves their job or hates it. It overflows into their normal life. They become resentful and unhappy in general, and that is NOT me!!

    Job with just enough. I do daycare for a living but mostly I get to be a stay at home mom. Which is payed in hugs. I will take that any day over wealth. I am rich in so many ways, I don’t need the money.

    I think I’d go with the “just enough to get by on” too. I’ve worn many hats in my life but I’ve like all my jobs. I can’t begin to imagine going to work every day to a job I hated. That would just stink.

    I would have to go with a job I loved that paid alot! 🙂

    Seriously I would take the job I loved with just enough to get by on.

    I am already at a job that I love and I just get by 🙂 At times would be nice to get more 🙂

  9. One that paid just enough. To be paid to do something you love isn’t work–it’s a labor of love.
