I don't know why, but most people think of work their whole lives as something they can get away from. News flash: that is not the way it works. Since the inception of mankind, God intend us to work; thats right, before Adam and Eve ever left the garden they were put here to work. And if you are reading this, so were you. Not just, punch a clock and get a paycheck work. There is work in everything. Do you want to be the best at something? Well, there is a lot of work in being the best at anything. Do you want to be in love? Guess what, there is work in loving someone. Do you want to do nothing? There is a ton of work in figuring out how you will be able to live and still do nothing. Get it yet? Work is a fact of life. You not only need to get use to it, you have to come to understand that any reward in life, is a product of the work that you do. Here is the secret, the work is the reward.
You are not here to have everybody pour their life out to please you; your job is to pour your life out taking care of the people you love. It is work, and it is rewarding work. You can't be a good father, mother, brother, sister, son or daughter with out working at it. Commit yourself to the well being of the people you love and you will love them better than you ever have before; and that is a life full of rewards.
