Pride Is More Than Your Paycheck

A person’s paycheck is a recognition of their work. It should never be used to judge someone’s worth. People who show up to do jobs that don’t make a lot are doing the best they can. Pay shaming isn’t cool and doesn’t do anyone any good. There are many people who need to be paid more than what they make.

Most people are paycheck to paycheck workers. Some folks have to hold down two or three jobs just to make ends meet. Many work long shifts that aren’t 9-5. It’s important to support those who work hard every day, no matter what they do. Pride is more than your paycheck.

Change Is All Around

The more you stay in a place the more it changes around you. Whether it be a job, a neighborhood, or somewhere else you see people, places, and things change and there’s really nothing you can do about it. Life moves on, people move on, everything moves on.

I have been in my job for almost eight years and I have seen faces come and go. My roles have changed. Yet I still remain because I have built a career in which I am helping people and saving lives.

The more things change, the more they stay the same is a philosophy I am not sure I agree with. Change is all around you. Don’t get too comfortable.

The work goes on. Life goes on. The thing about it all is you have to adapt and change along with all the stuff. I suppose you hold on to the important things and keep the main thing the main thing.

Positive And Negative

My posts are largely inspired by the world around me and the times in which we live. I do hope you are not bummed out by your visits here. I am a positive person most of the time but like anyone, I have my moments where negativity is the appropriate response. Thank you for visiting here and for your friendship.

The Ukraine-Russia Situation

I am hoping for peace in the Ukraine-Russia situation. My thoughts are with the people of both nations. In the case of Russia, the people are at the mercy of whatever Vladimir Putin wants to do. His ego is writing a check that will cost the region if not the world dearly.

The global community must come together to condemn the actions of Putin. It’s my hope no blood will be shed by anyone. Economic sanctions are a good start but I hope the military will not be charged with fighting another war however peace often requires action with a cost.

First COVID now this. My goodness, let’s chill.

Give peace a chance, please.
