It seems like a weird thing to be grateful for, but when there isn’t much of it, I become aware of how precious and important work is to my wellbeing. Work often results in money which we all need to get by in the world, but it is more than just money.
Work lets me feel like I am contributing to the community I live in and the world in general. It creates opportunity for me to connect with other people, which I love to do. Work also makes me feel useful and capable.
I am very lucky in that I do work that usually excites me and I feel great enthusiasm for what I do. I know that not everyone does work that they love, which makes me feel even more grateful that I can.
So today, I feel really grateful that I have work and that it is work that I love.
