Congrats, you made it. You got through four years of college working those underpaying odd jobs and now you are finally working full time. In my situation, it was really five years of college as I jumped right into a master’s in education program and continued working in a teaching residency that paid very little. I kept dreaming of my full-time paycheck and everything I could one day afford.
But here’s the truth: once I started working full time, the money wasn’t what I thought it would be. As it turns out, sometimes it isn’t how much we make but our attitude toward what we have been given that makes the difference.
