For the Love

As a freelancer, I am always on the lookout for the next interesting project to work on. As a mortgage owner, this often means I have to say no to some great contracts and yes to ones that are a little more dull, but that offer higher remuneration. 

I have recently been approached to do some work that I have had to decline. The work is great, the company is great, the people are great. But unfortunately, the pay isn't. 

And so this morning on my walk in the rain, I once again found myself indulging in the fantasy that money didn't own us, and that we owned ourselves.

But until the time when governments talk about their citizens' happiness and personal growth before economic growth, in the realm of fantasy my daydream will remain.
