Thank goodness for trained professionals!
I spent almost 30 years in my profession. I learned a lot. One of the most important lessons: Leave any job to the professionals! There are dozens (maybe hundreds) of jobs I would never want to do – lawn care, pest control, car mechanic, the list goes on.
There are a few I’ve dabbled in to get things done around the house. I can replace a faucet, swap out an outlet, install a ceiling fan (usually) … but when I need a plumber or an electrician, you better believe I’m calling in a pro.
Then there are the jobs I don’t dare attempt. I’m not a doctor and neither is WebMD. I’m not a lawyer, so when we rewrote our wills, we visited an attorney.
I’ve had several part-time jobs over the years in retail, food service and even at an amusement park. There are professionals who make those jobs their careers. Thank goodness for them!
I could write pages and pages about the professionals out there who make our lives better and easier. Everyone from artists to meteorologists to tradespeople to the heroes in security and healthcare, emergency services and our military. A simple thank you seems inadequate, but I offer thanks when I can – even to the cashier at the grocery store.
There’s a whole world out there just waiting to be explored. Everywhere you go, remember to say thanks to those people doing what they can to make your day a little brighter.
