I honestly don't mind going to work. I enjoy my job, it is pressured filled at times but I am good at it, people depend on me and I do miss some of my co-workers. Would I like to be in a position to retire? Absolutely. I love the freedom and the ability to spend my days surrounded by my real passions. Even without working, I discovered there just wasn't enough hours in the day. How can that be.
But for now the reality is I have to work to support myself and try to fit in all my other passions in a limited number of hours. I can live with that. Am used to it.
I am grateful to have a job, a home, my health, food on my table, two wonderful kids who seem to like me :). My heart goes out to my cousin, her husband and their family trying to be strong while he battles cancer. My heart goes out to a former co-worker whose husband suddenly passed away this past week.
Indeed I am grateful for every minute I am given. My goal is to do my best to make the most of those minutes. Not always an easy goal but a worthy one.
... a definite work in progress
