Fall in Love with Work – It Makes Home Possible

It is fantastic to love work because it makes good things at home possible.

For many people going to work is a chore, something they do because they must, something they hate. As a result, these people start the day with a bad attitude toward work and continue with a bad attitude throughout the day. Imagine what would happen if instead those people started the day with a good attitude and continued it throughout the day. Instead of hating work and dreading the approach of each morning, make a change and fall in love with work because it makes home possible.

First let’s look at some reasons to love what work makes possible at home:
  • it is nice to be able to pay the rent or mortgage
  • electricity is good
  • water is good
  • telephone  is service nice
  • a fridge full of good food is a wonderful thing
  • a full pantry feels really nice
  • it is fun to be able to go shopping and pick up whatever you want, when you want
Now, if you had a person who provided you with that list of things, you would like that person and be happy to see that person coming. So look at work the same way. The job you have makes it possible for you to create the lifestyle and obtain the quality of life you have created for yourself and your family. As a result, your work should be treated with respect and maybe some sisterly love.
When I was younger there was a song with the lyric, “free your mind and the rest will follow.” Those words are applicable in the work situation. Get the right mental attitude, think positively and affirmatively about work. When you have a good attitude,  the laws of attraction and the notion of what goes around comes around means that you will have better attitudes toward you when you put out a good attitude. Get a loving attitude toward work because of what it makes possible for you at home. So, the question for you this fantastic day is, can you find a way to love your job since it makes much of your home life possible?

  • I absolutely love my job now! And I haven't always loved my husband's job and the hours he works, but I have definitely grown to love it ever since I've been home. It's easy to take these things for granted so I really try not to do that.

    • It is great that you faound a new good attitude. Most importantly I am glad you are happy with your current situation!

  • You have provided a list of very wonderful things that a paycheck allow us to have. I'm in love all over again!

    • Hahahahahahaha. I am glad I could help you fall in love all over again.

  • I need to share this with some of the friends I have. They have great paying jobs, that use their abilities and talents well, but they still complain about it. I bet if they ended up losing that job, and their homes, they would have a different tune about that "annoying" job. This was a wonderful post, Janeane!

    • Thanks! I am glad you liked it. It is like the expression, "you never miss the water until the well runs dry."

  • I agree when you love what you do it does make things much easier at home and otherwise

    • Yes. We have to work anyway, so we might as well get a better attitude about it.

  • Yes ...its easy sometimes to get caught up in the everyday annoyances. When we focus on all the good things that come out of the pay we get when we go to work, that is more than enough to change a frown upside down. It is also a good thing to surround yourself at work with the things that you are working towards to keep you focused and happy. When I was looking to purchase my VW Beetle Convertible, I changed my desktop image to a beetle at the beach, it made me happy to know that my hard work was going towards something I wanted and it made me more productive and happy to be at work. Almost like a mini Vision Board!

    • I like the idea of making the screensaver something work provides the means to obtain.
