So much time is spent doing things we don’t want to do, that we sometimes lose sight of why we do those things. But for those of us who work for a living, those activities are the price we have to pay to be able to do the things that fill our souls.
If you are irritated that you had to go to work today, just think about the payoff you receive by doing what you are doing. Does your job provide you with money so you can have a home? Does it give you enough income to buy food? Does it allow you to afford owning your own horse? IS THAT ENOUGH?
I once heard someone say that people who choose to be homeless have traded comfort for freedom. If you really examine that statement, you can see the logic to it.
Would you be willing to give up your home, your comfort, your horse(s), for freedom from having to earn a living? Most of us would not.
So thank your employer today! Be grateful for your job and your income. Look at what you receive for your efforts. It’s a wonderful thing!
My job is carrying Jane and learning new skills. My job is to do as she asks, just a couple hours a day. The rest of the time is my own. I am grateful for this job, because she pays me with food, shelter, and loving care. It is a fair exchange, and I am grateful.
When you get off work, meet me at the barn and tell me about your day!
My passion is fetching. It is in my DNA. I can’t help it. I LOVE to chase things! The farther Jane and Rhett can throw sticks and balls, the happier I am.
It’s even better than Moshi’s job because I get to live in the house!
I could be upset that I don’t have the freedom to roam the countryside by myself, but I’m not. I look at the bright side of things. I get plenty to eat, lots of love, and a purpose in life. That’s enough to keep me happy.
What makes you happy? Do you give yourself time to do what fills your heart? Do you stop and smell the flowers? Make sure you are making time for yourself. Only then will your life have balance.
Let’s go play fetch!
