Thoughts On Being The Bread Winner
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

People often argue about working to live or living to work. They want to support themselves and their families. However, they also want to feel a sense of purpose. I, too, am like them.

I want my family to be happy and healthy. I want us to be able to pay our bills. However, I also want to be allowed to work. I do not want to be told to "sit tight". If reincarnation was a real thing, and I knew that after I died, I would come back to Earth with no medical problems and nothing to hold me back, I would be patient. I would wait for my next life. Then I could live the life that I want to live and pursue my dreams. However, I do not believe in reincarnation. I am not a perfect human being, but I hope that I will go to Heaven when I die. As far as a chance for a professional life, however, my life on Earth is all that I have. This is why I want to be a bread winner.

I want a sense of purpose. Those who know me would say that my purpose is to be a wife, daughter, sister, etc. I am happy with my family roles. As to a sense of purpose, however, I want something more. I imagine waking up each morning around 7:30, taking a shower, getting breakfast, and then, upon checking my email, learning that I have millions more Twitter followers. More followers would work wonders for me, both in terms of motivation and earnings. I imagine publishing many articles each day. I also imagine getting phone calls or emails from schools or businesses whose representatives would be contacting me to have me come speak to their organizations.

I often think about net worth. I hear about well-known personalities in fields such as business or entertainment, and I read about what they are worth. I want people to talk about what I am worth. However, my idea of being a bread winner is different from what most people think of when they hear the term.

Most people associate the term "bread winner" with someone who works long hours at a job. The person might be just a regular employee, but often he is a manager of some sort.

I would love to be a bread winner. Rather than having a supervisor watching my every move and waiting to fire me, however, I would want to be a blogger. If blogging paid enough money to pay the bills, support the family, and it gave us enough extra money to go see a movie once in a while, I would love to support my family this way.
