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.
