18 thoughts on “WORKING”
Maggie had been working hard for as long as she could remember. As a child, she helped her parents on their farm, waking up early to feed the animals and spending long days in the fields. When she was old enough, she got a job at the local diner, washing dishes and waiting tables. It wasn’t glamorous work, but it paid the bills.
After high school, Maggie went to college, working multiple jobs to pay for tuition and books. She studied hard, often staying up late to finish her assignments. Despite the long hours and hard work, she graduated with honors and landed a job at a prestigious law firm.
Maggie worked tirelessly, pouring her heart and soul into each case. She worked long hours, skipping meals and canceling plans with friends and family. Her colleagues admired her dedication, and her clients trusted her implicitly.
But as the years went by, Maggie began to feel worn out. She started to question whether all the hard work was worth it. Was she making a difference? Was she happy?
One day, after a particularly grueling day at work, Maggie took a walk. As she strolled through the park, she noticed children playing, couples walking hand in hand, and dogs chasing balls. She realized that there was more to life than just working hard.
Maggie began to make changes in her life. She started taking breaks during the day to walk or call a friend. She joined a book club and took up gardening. She even took a few days off to go on a trip with her family.
As she started to focus on the things that brought her joy, Maggie found that she had more energy and enthusiasm for her work. She was able to tackle challenges with renewed vigor and creativity.
Years later, when Maggie retired, she looked at her career proudly. She had worked hard and accomplished great things, but she also knew that there was more to life than just working. She had learned that taking time for herself and her loved ones was just as important as working hard.
