When you work your tail off most of your adult life and then you finally get a hefty raise out of nowhere, it is a major godsend from above. Your chances of living longer will increase because you will have much less stress in your life. This is what happened to me out of where recently. I work as a certified heating and air conditioning specialist at one of our local HVAC companies here in the city. I have been working for them 2 decades now and not once has any advancement come up until now. Out of nowhere I was asked if I wanted to leave the physical heating and air conditioning repair and installation field and go into the management and business side of the heating and cooling company. I was really honored they thought to consider me! Of course, i took the job because it was both much better pay and also I wanted to have aa long break from being out there fixing and installing central heating and air conditioning system units. After a while it gets old and turning. And honestly, I was reaching that point of wanting to forget a retirement plan and quit my job, changing careers in my middle ages. So the timing was just right with this offer to manage the local heating and air conditioning company that I had been working for. It really was a breath of fresh air. I would not have it any other way at this point in my life.
