Hey, hey, guess what profession is on the top of the list for ten happiest jobs? Apparently, I’m sitting in the catbird seat, so to speak.
The interesting thing about this list is that there seems to be a correlation between professions that sacrifice and serve others…and happiness. Even a financial planner fits into this scheme, sort of.
I guess we shouldn’t be surprised, as Jesus said something about this. (It is more blessed to give than receive.) And that’s worth thinking about during “the most wonderful time of the year.”
Personally, I have noticed in the past that I am most mentally healthy when I am living for others. But the times in my life where I have not been serving and sacrificing, these are the times that I fall into depression and well, let’s just say, unpleasant thinking.
So apparently, beyond volunteering, if you can choose a profession that leads you to live for others on a daily basis, you get more smiles for the miles.
I’m going to get my kids to read this.
