Today’s Gem of Gratitude #81 – Happy Labor Day!

20130902-175846.jpg

Today I am thankful for the ability to work. As we celebrate Labor Day today, I look back on my work history and I am very thankful that whenever I have needed to be employed I had the opportunity to do so. There were times when it took a little while for the employment situation that was right for me to connect with me, but it always happened in the right timing, and I thank God for that, as well as all of my loved ones who have been there for me and have provided the support and encouragement that I needed.

I realize that there are a lot of people out there who are looking for employment right now, and I wish you all the best. I encourage you to stay strong in your quest to find the employment situation that is right for you. And once you do find that employment situation that is the “right fit,” I encourage you to show some of your appreciation by doing something nice for someone else who is in need (preferably someone who is not related to you and is not a close friend, because I venture to think that most of us readily perform acts of kindness for our loved ones, at least I hope so). So, essentially, what I am asking is that in appreciation of receiving the blessing of that new job you pay that blessing forward by blessing someone else. No one can make it in this life alone. We all need someone else. We all need a helping hand and a helping heart at some point.

And to those of you who are in a position to offer an employment opportunity to someone else today, please step out of your comfort zone and consider qualified candidates whom you might not have previously considered. This world is full of highly skilled and very qualified people who want to work and who believe in working hard, but unfortunately are not often presented with the opportunity to do so. And being a blessing to someone in that situation will certainly benefit you as well as them.

To everyone out there, please enjoy this day of rest with family and friends. And always remember the importance of taking good care of yourself, after all, there is only one of you to go around. Be blessed. #lovebythedrop
