This week at “Five Minute Friday”, the word is “WORK”
Work has many conotations – both positive and negative. It can refer to our daily jobs, chores we must do around our homes or task we take on.
I was lucky to work at a job I loved for over 30 years – as a teacher. Yes, teaching was work and there were many challenges but it was also my passion.
I often worked long hours at night or on the weekend but I was doing what I needed and wanted to do.
As Confucius said “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
Now that I am retired, my work is more house workd and yard work – both of which I have always done, but am not really partial to. I have turned more to writing and art to fill my time.
We should all be able to choose work that fulfills us.
