What was your first salary?

posted on May 24th, 2019

What did you do with it?

My first salary was Rs 500 (10$) I got it after working for an intern for one month. I offered it to my mom. My mom was very thrilled as if I had given her a million $ ๐Ÿ™‚

I realised my first salary helped me understand the true joy of giving. Small things matter much more than so called big things.

I also realised that we all want more than we give, hence most of the time we remain unhappy.

My first salary also helped me understand the value of money.

It made me feel grateful.

It gave me so much happiness.

I also realised that you have to work hard to make money.

Each time I see a Rs 500 note I remember thats what I earned after working so hard:)

Nothing comes easy in life:)

My first salary also made me realise I had arrived in some form!

I felt productive!

I felt I was useful:)

I felt I had arrived in a new world.

That feeling of accomplishment!

It was a piece of paper or maybe a number which told a story!

As someone wise has said โ€œYou don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first stepโ€

How did you feel when you received your first salary?
