Just last week I happened to have the television on as I was folding some laundry. Oprah was on and had a guest, whose name I cannot recall at this time, who spoke of a startling statistic: 84% of people in this country are unhappy with their jobs. Eighty-four percent of us go to work every day to a job that does not satisfy us? How tragic. When you think about how much of one’s life one spends at work–that is a lot of time spent in unhappiness.

I can empathize as I used to be one of those people. Almost two years ago, however, I made a decision to change my life because I wanted to be happier. I deserved it and my family deserved it…because as the saying goes, “If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy”.

I am so glad that I did. I now work from home, make a great income, and am able to spend the time with my family that I only dreamt about two years ago.

Now, I know that there are those that work from home that are still in that 84%. In fact, one of Oprah’s guests was one of them. If you are one, I invite you to just take a step back and look at what it is you are doing and why it is that you are not happy doing it. Then, make a change. I know I make it sound so simple, but sometimes it can be. Changes don’t have to always be difficult. And, even if it is a bit challenging to make a change…isn’t your happiness worth it?
