This is why I work

10 May

Some people have jobs they love, some have jobs they hate and some have jobs they are meh about. I fall into the last category…not crazy about what I do however I don’t hate it. I’m just meh. But I know I’m good at what I do and have a good work ethic.

Some days I just need to remind myself why I work.

I work so I can travel to places like…..

Bahamas and Grand Turk

And Mexico

San Francisco



I work so I can go to concerts (and of course tailgate beforehand)

I work so I can go back to my college for homecoming

I work so I can take care of this little guy and provide a nice, happy home for him (Karla, this ones for you!)

Some days I really need to remind myself why I work so hard, day in and day out. Is it for the money? Hell yeah. But more importantly, it’s for the memories of places I’ve gone, things I’ve seen and people (and four legged friends) in my life.

    I have the “meh” job, too. But yes, we do need to be appreciative of what it gives us… 🙂

    while I was boarding my plane the other day I thought the exact same thing: “i get yelled at at work so I can enjoy my time off like this”…seriously…keeps me going during the day.

    I love your outlook on your job. I really need to sit down and do this because right now I’m falling into the could-this-job-suck-any-more category. Beautiful pictures!
