Work Keeps Us Out Of Trouble

Updated on March 28, 2015

Busy Body And Mind

When we have to much leisure time

We become lazy

Lacking drive and initiative

Easily bored

We need to push ourselves

Beyond what we like to do

Challenging our spirit

In ways we couldn't do before

Interacting with friends and coworkers

Some not agreeing eye to eye

We learn to cope

Change and sometimes disagree

Learning takes place at a rapid pace

Too much time on our hands can get us into trouble

Picking up bad habits and making poor choices

Eating and sleeping more

Is not healthy physically or mentally

Even though at the end of the day we are exhausted

We have earned money for things that we may want or need

We can also save for a later date

So even though work may be a daily grind

It has a strange way of giving us purpose

Next time you are in work

Try looking at it from a different angle

You may find it not just a job but so much more than meets the eye

      I agree. A change of perspective is often what we need to supply new energy. Thanks for the counsel.

      Michael-Milec I love to work. I also love to help people. Sometimes I think there are better ways than the one I am currently pursuing. Making the most of my work and free time has always been one of my greatest interests. Thank you for reading and sharing. Making each day brighter and more enjoyable.
