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?
