Give Yourself a Raise

I read an interesting poem yesterday that I think might help everyone out a little bit. It may help us all realize we can't settle for less.

"I bargained with Life for a penny,
and Life would pay no more.
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store;

For Life just employer
And gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages
Why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menial hire,
only to learn, dismayed
That any wage I asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid."

- Jessie B. Rittenhouse

Get that raise today.
