I am grateful for being able to work.
Pure and simple.
I am not rich, but the jobs I hold help me to pay bills and afford a small rental house. They also let me pursue my passions; writing and travel to name a few.
Being employed, staying employed and remaining employable are all things to be grateful for especially in an uncertain world. I haven’t always had the best jobs or the greatest bosses but each job I have held as always been more than a job to me. Throughout my working career, I have endeavored never to look down on a task I have been assigned. Tried never to see something as beneath me.
They have been learning experience, experiments and on occasion they have been acts of desperation. They have given me stories and experiences that have transformed myself from a shy violet to a confident and vibrant rose.
So I am grateful for my jobs; grateful for the things that they enable me to do. I am grateful that I do something for a living that is both challenging and rewarding.
