What is work?
“activity involving mental or physical effort done in order to achieve a purpose or result.”
I looked up the definition because I think work means something different per each person. This description fits me because it goes beyond a paycheck. However, earning cash is a reward and puts a smile on my face.
But, more than the money is the sense of purpose that I believe we all need as humans.
I feel sad for the homeless person for that reason. I know they lack money, but I wonder if it’s more distressing to lack purpose? Or is their purpose to remind us (the ones who do have jobs, money, shelter, etc.) to remember to be grateful for what we have and not take it for granted and to give to those who are less fortunate?
There is inequity in our world and life is very unfair to a great amount of people. I think it’s best to keep it in mind to be grateful for what we have and to share our “wealth” with the poor.
