Work Makes Home Possible and That is Good!

be grateful for work

You will be happier at work once you realize that work makes your home life possible. All across the world, there are people who don’t realize this and hate going to work each day. Don’t be one of them, appreciate what your work contributes to your life at home.


Paychecks are a great way to pay for the life you want to live. 

If you need a reason to appreciate work, how about the fact that work makes itfor you to live the life you want.  When you think about work that way, you have a whole new kind of appreciation.  When you go to work and earn a paycheck, that money fuels the life you live outside of work.  This means that work is not something that interferes with your life. Instead, it is something that makes your life possible.

Sometimes one job will be sufficient to fund the life you want to live. Other times two jobs may be needed to fund that life.  When I was an undergrad college student, paying my way through college, it took a full-time job and a part-time job to live the life I wanted to live – my own apartment, college tuition and minimal savings. I was happy to be able to work the two jobs. Later when I was able to work just one job and was no longer a student, life seemed like a vacation by comparison.  But, none of that changes the fact that work made my life possible.

Get a good attitude about work because it will make you feel glad to go to work each day. 

The work you do to earn a living should not be thought of as something that interferes with life, but as a part of life. When I was a child there was a television show called, “The Facts of Life.” The following are some of the lyrics from the show’s theme song:


You take the good

You take the bad

You take them both

And then you have

The facts of life. . . the facts of life . . .

An attitude to that is a good way to look at work life and home life. There are good parts to work and bad parts to work. It is our work that provides the income we need for basics like food, clothing and shelter. Our work also provides the income we need for special things like hobbies, vacations and gifts for those we love.

What is Make It Work Retreat

make it work retreat

Life doesn’t always go the way we plan and when that happens we have to find a way to make it work. This is the idea that created the #MakeItWorkRetreat conference.



The organizer of #MakeItWorkRetreat is Janeane Davis, J. D., President and Chief Executive Officer of James, Davis and Associates, publisher of the blog Janeane’s World. She believes that every working mom can succeed and be happy with the right encouragement, inspiration and motivation which is why she created the blog Janeane’s World and why she works each day to create resources designed to encourage, inspire and motivate women to be their best at work and home.


The #MakeItWorkRetreat was designed to encourage working moms to do what it takes to make things go well at work and home by encouraging them to take time away from home and work to learn skills, techniques and tricks to work smarter instead of merely harder.

Too often women don’t improve in their businesses because they have responsibilities at work and home that keep them from learning new skills, getting improved techniques and networking with others to learn new tricks. The #MakeItWorkRetreat is a way for these women to attend the conference either on location or via the internet at a hotel in their home area or from their own homes.



The retreat is held live in one location where there are live participants. Others can participate in the conference events via the internet. Internet participants will be able to see and hear all that is occurring at the live event. They will be able to ask questions via the chat feature on the streaming video software used to stream the conference.
