3 Reasons to Be Grateful for Work

3 Reasons to Be Grateful for Work


Be grateful for work because it enables you to provide for your family, have something to do each work day and help make the world a better place.

Each weekday morning, people all over the world get up and prepare to spend a significant portion of the day at work. Many of these people are4 miserable at their places of employment. If you are one of those people, I encourage you to get a new attitude about work. There are at least three reasons why you should be grateful for work. These three include the following:

1. Work enables you to provide for your family.
2. Work gives you something to do each day.
3. Work is a way to make the world a better place.


Wake up in the morning determined to go to work and be glad that you can provide for your family.


There are many reasons why people work. One of the most important and one of the most common is the need to provide for one’s family. If you are a person with a spouse, children, pets and other similar responsibilities, you need money to honor those responsibilities. Housing costs money. Food costs money. Clothing costs money. Entertainment costs money. When one goes to work, one earns a salary and is able to provide those things for one’s family.

When you look at your work as a way of providing for your family rather than as a nuisance that keeps you away from your family, you have a new and different appreciation for it. A thing that does nothing but keeps you away from your family is a thing to despised, hated and shunned. On the other hand, a thing that provides for your family deserves respect, admiration and appreciation. It is all about the attitude. When you have a proper attitude toward your work, you will feel better about going to work each day. When you feel better about going to work, you are more likely to do a better job and feel better about the work you do.

So, starting tomorrow morning, get up and be grateful for your work because it helps you to provide for your family and that is something that deserves a show a gratitude.

Technology – Use Your Camera to Have Fun

use your camera to have fun

Your camera is a great tool for work and play so make sure to use and enjoy yours every chance you get.

Start looking at your camera as a way to have fun!

I first fell for cameras and photography during my early years in college. One of the jobs that I had while working my way through school was at a store that sold greeting cards, photography equipment and did photo processing. Back in those days, all the cameras used film that had to be processed in a dark room or at a photo processing location.

While film was not super expensive, taking photos on film, processing the film did have a cost. Our store would charge about $10 to $15 to process 36 photographs. Some of the photos would be great and some of the photos would be not so great. Most photographers will agree that if you want to get good at photography you must take photos – lots of photos. In the age of film it was financially prohibitive for many people to get good at photography.



Fast forward to today when most smart phones have good cameras and digital cameras ranging from simple point and shoot cameras to complex DSLR cameras are increasingly within the price range of many consumers. Digital photos can be seen almost immediately. Using a digital camera whether a stand-alone machine or one that is part of your smart phone you can take hundreds of photos without it costing a dime. So get out your camera and just start taking photos. Take photos of anything that strikes your fancy – your shoes, your breakfast cereal or even the traffic outside your house. Start taking photos, as many as you want, as often as you want so that you can start to get good at the job.


When using your camera, take time to have fun.


Don’t forget that your camera and photography can be fun. A gun game is to use your camera to play hide and seek. At home or at the playground, take a photo of something and show it to your kids. The game means that whoever finds the item in the photo first wins. Another way to have fun with the camera is to find ways to take photos that look interesting or like other items.
