Thankful Thursday: For Work

Not just today, but every day, I’m thankful for work.

I’m thankful to be able to work in the industry I love – agriculture.

I’m thankful to be able to combine my passion for agriculture with my passion for communications, in my work.

I’m thankful to be able to work alongside people who also have a passion for agriculture.

I’m thankful for the people who recognize my passion and talent, and give me work opportunities in this industry.

I’m thankful for these opportunities to learn more and improve my skills.

For too many people, work is just work. A way to pay the bills and get by. Too many people spend their eight hours a day at work counting down the precious minutes. Not me. I want to be busy and challenged. I want to love what I do. I want to not just feel like, but know that I’m making a difference in my industry. As I’ve said before on this blog, I want to wake up every morning excited to go to work knowing that I’m making a difference. And I hope you do too.

Thanks for reading!

  1. You’re one of the lucky few who actually gets to do what they love and enjoy work. Not many people are able to pursue what they desire because life necessitates the need to bring home a paycheck – any paycheck. Enjoy!

    1. I have to disagree with you on this one, Candace. I know lots of people who love their work. But you’re right, I am very fortunate to be able to work in an industry that I love. I have found my niche. And I encourage you to look for yours. Life is too short to be unhappy with your job and/or career. With that said, regardless of whether you love your job or not, it’s important to remember to be thankful that you have a job as there are so many people without one (as you know). Thanks for commenting!

      1. I would say that the people you know are not the norm of a majority of society. Not that that’s a bad thing lol! Most people work because they have to, and would much rather be doing something else career-wise. Some people start families young and don’t get to go to school until much later. Or other circumstances force them into the working world before they are ready – family illness, divorce, job loss and now have to take anything…One of my friends (won’t use names on here) is our age and just now going to school, while taking care of 4 kids, so she can do what she wanted to more than 10 years ago. Most people just take on a variety of jobs, but don’t get to settle into a career they would consider their dream. After the last year, I am glad I have a job, yes.
