The Worker’s Vacation - poem
This is for everyone because it is basically about how all of us need a rest, or break, at least once a year no matter what type of job we have. There are many sorts of vacations, rests, relaxations which we can take. If we have hobbies which we do routinely, or even randomly, they help. We go into all of these subjects in more detail below.
Needing Some Time Off Work:
This poem has been written for those of us who are tired and do not know it. Perhaps your writing has been getting to you and you need to take a break to avoid the problems in the present. Maybe the problems, or at least some of them, will be taken care of by the time you get back. At least you will have rested and rejuvenated and even cleared up writer’s block, if you had that. If not then there are other ways.
Suppose that they are problems from the past or future. Usually problems from the past can be cleared up on your time off. If they cannot be cleared up, there is still no use in worrying about them, they are past.
Problems of the future are not here yet. Fretting about them is a waste of time until they get here - then they are present problems.
What To Do On Vacations:
Maybe you like playing golf but you never have time between your job and your chores at home. You think to yourself, “Oh, I will have all day Saturday, and Sunday after church to relax on the course.” The weekend gets here and you find out that you have to work all weekend, or work at the office on Saturday and do chores around the house on Sunday. That weekend is shot. Take a vacation at your favorite golf club, relax and have a good time.
Perhaps you want to go to Disney. Your family may enjoy that, or if you do not have a family you might like to see Mickey Mouse yourself. They have one in Florida (Disney World) and one in California (Disneyland) – they are different names but they are both basically the same. They both have rides, food, Disney characters, etc.
You might want to stay home, that is okay too. Do you have hobbies? Such as gardening, country biking, tinkering around in the house or garage, watching the birds, etc. There is nothing wrong with just relaxing and doing your hobby. As long as you eat right and exercise correctly.
If you have writer’s block then you can scribble just about nothing – or anything – that you want.
If you are a gardener, what type are you?
Do you have a favorite hobby? If you do, tell us in your comment.
The Vacation Poem:
Do you work on the docks, or
Do you work in the plant?
Do you work in the office, or
Do you work at home?
What type of career did you select?
Are you a lawyer, a doctor, a teacher or a writer?
Whatever you chose, wherever you work,
A vacation should be a time of rest.
We all need a vacation, a break from work,
Where you go, what you do, you do your best,
To become rested and relaxed,
To recharge so you can return to work.
So take a break, relax, do not worry and become refreshed.
