Daily Prompt: Sixteen Tons

Daily Prompt: Sixteen Tons
by Krista on March 24, 2014

How do you feel about your job? Do you spring out of bed, looking forward to work? Or, is your job a soul-destroying monotony of pure drudgery, or somewhere in between?


Since I work at home, on my own time, and do what I want to do, when I want to do it, I love my job. Mornings are my best time for writing, so, yes, I look forward to it. Sadly, I can no longer ‘spring’ out of bed, but I do manage to get out of bed and I’m thankful for that.

The chronic illnesses that befell me and led me to an early retirement, I would not wish on anyone. However, I would wish that everyone could enjoy the stress free environment of working at home; be it writing or another love.

I worked many years in soul-destroying monotony of pure drudgery jobs, that probably led to most of my chronic illnesses. It is pure joy to me that I’m now able to pursue my love of writing. Of course, there are days when I’m unable to work on much of anything, but I know my laptop, my blog, and my stories will still be there waiting for me, when I have a good day.

  2. I am not crazy about my job, but the people at my warehouse make me feel better, once I get through the security gate. I am always going to wish I were still a teacher, wish I had not spent some of my retirement money on trying to save a marriage and house, too! But, regrets are not too bad, since I am so grateful to be alive and healthy. Knock on wood! I am very sorry about your chronic health concerns and your setbacks. You deserve a medal for sojourning on! Smiles, Robin


    1. No, no medals. Just doing what I had to do when I had to do it. I’m thankful for the stress relief, though, especially when I pushed through those last couple of years, working while I was sick.
