My Work Is Not Just A Job It's My Career

Updated on August 10, 2013

To Keep Enjoying After All These Years

Simply put

My body has done the work

My talents practiced over time

Friendships made

Directions followed

Experiences that I will carry with me to the end of time

Struggles I have faced and problems solved

Some with my doing and others seem to work themselves out

Many coworkers come and go

For them it is just a pitstop along the way

I once thought I would spend some time and move on

Now I see I am here to stay

I have made an honest living

Doing my job and doing it well

Three decades later

Some 62,400 hours and counting

A life of joy can not be bought

Because we all know our work does not stop

Bosses lead and workers follow

If they only knew the minds of the people who work so hard

Who dedicated their time,effort and gave their personal best

To finish their job with pride and a great feeling of accomplishment

Maybe one day they will see and understand

To do a job well is not as easy as it looks

To leave work and be thankful

For the job that I do

Is the gift I give from me to you

      Very well said, Dream-On! Some people just go through jobs just to climb the ladder faster than others.... that doesn't mean they are better.... even at the top! It's important to enjoy your work because during a life time if you don't enjoy it, it's a long time to be unhappy!

      Have a great weekend!
