That is the mantra of the faux-President/temp job shop owner in the movie, Dave.
Whatever day a new job is started, it's a great day.
I like the way "Dave" puts it:
If you've ever seen the look on somebody's face the day they finally get a job, I've had some experience with this, they look like they could fly.
And its not about the paycheck, it's about respect, it's about looking in the mirror and knowing that you've done something valuable with your day.
And if one person could start to feel this way, and then another person, and then another person, soon all these other problems may not seem so impossible.
You don't really know how much you can do until you, stand up and decide to try.
Dave from the movie, Dave
Work is a blessing. For some that work might be a volunteer position; while for most it's about respect - of doing something valuable.
My first job was working one evening a week at the Jotter - helping put out the shopper newspapers so the carriers could pick them up and handing out their pay. It felt good.
The first day on the job is exciting and anxiety filled. Can we do it? Will we like out co-workers? Will they like us?
It seems safe to say that no matter what the task; the person doing it was excited about getting that job. Sure, the excitement can wear off pretty quick sometimes.
But, if you've been out of work involuntarily at any point, you are know how much it means to work.
It's Monday, whatever your work... get to it... and give thanks!
