Five Minute Friday: Work

It’s Friday!  Time to link up with Kate Motaung and the FMF crew.

It’s been another busy week, after a busy holiday weekend, but it is nice to get past the stress of the August rush at work.

Speaking of work, this week’s Five Minute Friday prompt is (you guessed it):  work.

************************

One of our greatest needs as humans is the need for meaningful work.
We need to do work that matters, that makes a difference.

Deprived of that, we become hamsters on a wheel: working to eat and eating to work.

Whether or not it’s paid work, we have to do something that fulfills our need to contribute and leaves the world better than when we found it.

If we get paid to do meaningful work, all the better.

But, without that touch, without that feeling of accomplishment, we despair.

We can’t live without the hope that our work matters.

Aside from relationship, it’s our most critical need.
