This morning’s Thought Massage:
“What type of Work would I do for Free?”
This one’s so apropo. Friday, I was lunching with a friend of many years. It was really good seeing him; hadn’t seen him in a while. After lunch, we started playing with the TAPN2U cards, laughing and stuff. The card (what type of work…) came up and he mentioned it was a good question, but he wasn’t feeling that word “work”. We started dialoguing about it, and I had shared with him it’s funny, cause I was just giving that word some thought. It was one that was a recent morning’s Thought Massage reflection for me.
Thinking about it, I recognized that at one time, the word “work” was a positive…being productive – honorable. Today, it has a negative connotation for many. My view of the word changed for me too; the shift came and I couldn’t tell you when…as they say, I didn’t even see it coming :-). I ponder, when did the perception of that word change from an pleasure to a toil??? From a “Oh, boi, I want to” :-), to “Ohhh boooiii, I got to” :-(? I just googled the word…Work: An activity involving mental or physical effort done in order to achieve a purpose or result. I must ask…where is the, ummmm – discord in that? Could it be it’s all in how we think about it; just a…thought
