One month without work taught me a lot of things

Let me share you guys my insights about the past three weeks without having work. I always believe that having material things means happiness. (I'm a Taurus, very materialistic, forgive me) To be honest that is one of the reasons I worked very hard over the decade. And when I still had work, I gave my husband lots of presents as he got nothing before we met which makes me more determined to work because I wanted to give him everything that he didn't experienced or had before. My husband has work, don't get me wrong. He works to feed me and my children. I work for the bills (ours and the in-laws because we're still staying here. He hasn't decided to leave from here yet). But when my health deteriorated, I forced myself to resign. Also to free myself from stress. But then I felt that I was useless by not contributing money to our family. Even the smallest things like giving a gift worries me because I don't have the money conpared before. I am pretty sure you will agree to me that if you have the money, you wouldn't worry about giving gifts. You wouldn't even have to worry about the price One thing that I learned for the past few weeks is we shouldn't need to spend money lavishly. A dinner with the family is enough. Spending time at home hanging out is enough. Cooking food for my family is a bliss (since I personally don't know how to cook. I only know computer stuff) I saw him happy, and seeing him happy is enough for me, too. Let me know your thoughts. I will answer it truthfully as much as I can. Thanks in advance and happy mylotting!

Sometimes your health comes first because what you earn at your job might not even cover the hospital bills. Especially if you work in the restaurant industry, you can easily get gastric from that job because of your eating schedule had to be opposite of everyone else. You can still earn money without having a job though.

Thank you so much. I admit it is the most crucial time for me to stay with my kids at home. I need to guide them every single time. That's why I figured I need to quit my current job because it requires my full attention with the family. Thanks for sharing your wonderful thoughts!
