Taking Care

Recently, someone posed the question, "How do you take care of yourself?"

The first thought that popped in my head was "work."

And I realized that it's true. Work is a way for me to take care of myself.  Not every day, of course.  Some days are exhausting and hard, but eight mornings out of ten, I wake up excited and ready to go to work.

I feel privileged that I have a job I love.  I know not everyone does.  I feel so thankful that I do what I do and with whom I do it.  I'm honored to be surrounded by individuals who have dedicated their lives to helping others.  I forget, sometimes, that any one of them could be working a better job, making more money in the private sector and yet, here they are, next to me, striving to help people help themselves.

How fortunate I am.

I'm glad you know it :)

I recently read a blog post that was the polar opposite of yours.

Ah well, I suppose we all have those days too...

This applies to me in a way! I can't seem to rest until I've done everything possible that needs to be done. I find myself a little lost without work haha
