Why in the work do we take work so seriously???!! Yes, there are things to get done, deadlines to meet, projects to complete BUT who said it has to be serious, dull and stressful? What if we made a new rule that said “Work should be interesting, fun and joyful”?
“Easy for you to say Cheryl. You don’t have to work at the awful place with awful people.” Well, if that is your reaction, perhaps you should find someplace else to be.
In the meantime, I always love the poem “All I really need to know I learned in kindergarten”. A time when everything was about play. Here you go! ENJOY!!
“ALL I REALLY NEED TO KNOW I LEARNED IN KINDERGARTEN”
by Robert Fulghum
Most of what I really need
To know about how to live
And what to do and how to be
I learned in kindergarten.
Wisdom was not at the top
Of the graduate school mountain,
But there in the sandpile at Sunday school.
These are the things I learned:
Don’t hit people.
Put things back where you found them.
Clean up your own mess.
Don’t take things that aren’t yours.
Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody.
Wash your hands before you eat.
Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
Live a balanced life –
Learn some and think some
And draw and paint and sing and dance
And play and work everyday some.
Take a nap every afternoon.
When you go out into the world,
Watch out for traffic,
Hold hands and stick together.
Be aware of wonder.
