Work is a Gift
Work is a gift from God. It helps us to have food each day, to buy the things that we use in our everyday life and it also teaches us to be responsible. Many people use the money that they earn from work to help their families financially, like helping his/her siblings to go to school, to pay for electricity etc. that’s why we must give importance on our work whatever it is.
Last Sunday, my family and I went to Tagaytay. On our way home, we went to a gasoline station to top up our car and there was this guy who really stood out for me. He was the one who assisted us. He always smiled and was very accommodating. He did his work with so much passion, It was inspiring how he gave importance to his work. I also remembered the waiter that served us in a restaurant last year before Christmas, he also gave his best serving us.
This made me reflect on what I do with my life. There were many times that I complain about my job, that's why I am not successful in my career until now, that I should have money etc, but seeing these people which I believe do not earn as much as I am and maybe not a degree holder made me realize my mistake, that I should be thankful on what I have and give my best.
Whatever your work is, you might be a janitor, a factory worker, a doctor a teacher etc., you must not forget to enjoy whatever you have right now and be thankful. You might be complaining about your salary but remember that their are many unemployed. What is important is have gratitude on what you have right now and do it well. I am sure in time you will reap your hard work. You are still blessed and be thankful about that.
Do your work with passion. I am sure you will not only make yourself happy but also others as well. Give positive energy to others, it will make you inspired to work even better and feel lighter. God bless you. Happy working!
