A Good Day At Work
Completely over and finished
Add this one to the never-ending pile
I wonder how many people look back at all the days they have worked?
After they have worked them and rehash so many of the events that happened
I think there are only a handful that stands out in my mind
The rest become one big blur
Unless something unusual happened
For me, if someone got fired or quit
A fight or argument took place
A new boss or new employees started
Then it would stand out for a while maybe even forever
There are some nights that are better forgotten
What about the times that were somewhere in the middle?
They become anonymous
Faceless memories buried somewhere in our subconcousness
Not great but not bad
Another day that gave us one more paycheck to look forward too
As the years pass people come in and out of our lives constantly
We don't notice how long they have been there or what we had until they are gone
We are conditioned to move right along
I look back and think of all the exercise I got doing my job
I may never get rich from working all these years
What I do have is this
I withstood the test of time
I have learned to roll with the punches and still take a few on the chin
I can say something very few people say
I will be here tomorrow and soon the day after that
Unless the big guy upstairs needs a little company
Then even my best plans have changed
Work was showing some real signs of accomplishment
Now I would have had no choice
To enjoy what it was and realize it was necessary
Work does the mind and body good
Maybe it helps nourish the soul?

Brenda Arledge We spend more time at work than in any other activity. Imagine if our work was working out at the gym every day. We would all be in great shape. We would have also got paid for something that improves our health and our life. Maybe you could share any funny times in your work. That may keep the good times around forever. Thank you for reading and sharing. Have one fabulous night.

The working life keeps moving on everyday. I don't think we really think about much of it.
