I am a friend of the workingman, I would rather be his friend than be one. -Clarence Darrow

Okay, sorry about the absence of Sunday Wrap Up this week, I was busy enjoying life and Salerno was recovering from getting her wisdom teeth removed.

I didn’t have to work till I was three. But after that, I never stopped. -Martha Raye

The sentence this Tuesday comes after two weeks and two days of work that I once enjoyed, and now complain about constantly. I don’t know what it is but I don’t want to be there (who does?) It’s not just that, its the fact that I once didn’t mind my job overall and in reality it is a pretty cushy job. So why am I so exhausted after work everyday? Why do I almost dread it every morning and count down the hours during my shift?

This kind of negative energy isn’t doing any good for anyone involved. Not the people I work for, not my coworkers and definitely not for me. So help me out! What do you do to make long days better? To move past the lecture your boss just gave you or the rudeness received by a client etc? Can you find positives about your job besides just the money?

Every day I get up and look through the Forbes list of the richest people in America. If I’m not there, I go to work. -Robert Orben

To make my day bearable I think I first have to go in with a slightly more positive attitude. Then I find that if I can find some way to have fun, to talk to others and laugh and enjoy the indiosyncracies that come with working with children then I can at the very least respect my job and make it through the day less Oscar the Grouch-like. Tell me your thoughts!

Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don’t turn up at all. -Sam Ewing
