Is Work The Key To Happiness ?
Each of our days begin when we open our eyes
Soon we are off to work
To pay for the bare necessities of life
Food on the table
Giving us a safe place to sleep and relax
Clothing to keep us warm
Then to have extra money to enjoy the fruits of our labor
A vehicle so we may have transportation to go where we need to go
As we fulfill each need we notice as more desires surface
Each one wanted so we can have the opportunity to live a happier life
For some it is nicer clothes
Jewelry or make up
A better home and more furnishings to give us more comfort
We gradually work more to save more
So we can have more
Enjoy more luxuries and pleasures
Then work even more to keep up with our own demand of endless wants
Let's back up a step and review what we really need
Food ,shelter, clothes
We will have to add in affordable health care
Just in case we get sick or ill
Now we look at savings for our future
If we don't have the same job and have no income ?
How can we provide for us and our loved ones ?
So we seek a second job to keep up or as a back up just incase
Working long hours having less time for our family and friends
Even less time to enjoy all our conviences of life
Where did we go drastically wrong ?
Has work become our friend or our biggest enemy ?
Over time we spend more time in work than anywhere else
Except for sleeping
Do we trick ourselves into thinking working gives us great pleasure ?
Do we go to work to enjoy an activity we love and get paid providing for our needs ?
Have we come so far to say...
Work is our life
Something that fills our thoughts every waking hour of the day
When we are off from work do we think of when and what will happen at work when we go back ?
Is life a double edge sword ?
When we are at work do we count the days till we are off or able to go on our next vacation
To spend more money to push us to work even more in the future
So I ask you ?
Is your work your dream job ?
Something you always wanted to do ?
Your life's passion ?
Are you in love with work or just happy to have a job ?
So you can provide for all the things you do and don't need
