Five Minute Friday – WORK

Five-Minute-Friday-4

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.

  1. Visiting as your FMF neighbor. You’re absolutely right, if you enjoy what you’re doing it’s anything but work. I spent over 50 years in publishing and wouldn’t trade a day. Good bless you in your retirement. Enjoy. I know I will.
