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.
