I live in the country and work from home. Just me, the dogs, squirrels, rabbits, deer and bear for office mates. It's SO much less stress than driving an hour each way and contending with stacked office cubes.

4/21/13 2:45 P

Worked out from 12:52 am to 5:12 am. Thank you for your post.

I am a Special Education Teacher and I teach people - middle school-aged people who have significant cognitive and behavioral disabilities. Many of my students have autism and I love my job and my students; matter of fact, I love my bosses - Special Ed Director, Principal and Assistant Principal too.

Well, I am back . Am I ever emoticon but that is my normal workout. 2 1/2 hrs. exercise and 1 1/2 hr. walking. This morning walked from 3:30 am till 5:12 am with 10, 526 steps. Do you have a pedometer? That is 1 piece of equipment you'll start. They cost about $8.-.I do this 7 days a week. For a while there will be pain, that comes with exercise & walking but after you'll work with it. I start the first part by my kitchen with push-ins. Stand about 2 ft.away from counter waist high, put your hands on the counter bend forward. I normally do 50 but you're just beginning. I'll send you more later. Have a "good day" and thank's for posting and I am giving you this for effort emoticon .

I love my students and I have a special student who has autism who is becoming a track star - he has competed in 5 meets and has placed in every one of them. He competes against 6-8th graders and is only a sixth grader but has won 4 first place, 6 second place and 4 fifth place awards. He throws discus and shot put and runs in at least 2 running events each meet. This is his first time to compete with general ed students and he has become a HERO in our school and among those from the other school at the meets. The meets have had 3-5 other teams competing in them and he is simply amazing.

I love this! I've struggled since losing a full-time job and finding the joy/feeling of being someone who matters at a retail job, but I help women feel beautiful by helping them find the perfect fitting bra (I work at Victoria's Secret). The look on some of their faces after being properly measured and fit is sometimes indescribable when they realize they can look amazing!

Plus the girls I work with are awesome and we have a ton of fun at work :)

My first daily post:

For those of us with jobs... sometimes it can be a challenge to maintain positive perspectives, to appreciate the things we do, the contributions we make, the relationships we build. Or it can be a challenge sometimes to remember our original motivations, or what we like about our jobs. This thread is for us workers.

Starting today, I will post here almost every day with something I like about my job, and/or something I did well recently on the job, or anything else positive about my work.

Please join me!
