Gratitude

I love working my maintenance job. It pays very well and got a new increase in my salary. Sometimes it’s meditative, other times hectic but mostly meditative. I just focus on my cleaning tasks and make sure to communicate with my boss if there’s anything that’s broken.. One of the best things about being a custodian in my opinion, is the fact that you work alone. You don’t have to deal with the office politics that happen behind the front desk. I pay no attention to petty gossip and I never involve myself in any melodrama whatsoever. Can’t bothered with that. Ain’t got no time for that sort of nonsense. I love my job and I enjoy where I am.

This is a great confession. I'm happy for you! Gratitude is so important and it's something I'm trying to work on for 2024.

A lot of people tend to overlook custodians as the creepy guy who nobody talks to. But since they deal with a lot, they deserve to get paid the highest for all they put up with. There are the eyes and ears of both schools and community centres.

There’s nothing wrong with doing that type of work and I think it could be very relaxing in a way. It can be physically challenging sometimes depending on the nature of the work, and if it wasn’t for a couple of limitations I have I’d do it in a heartbeat. Dealing with demanding and unappreciative people all day is what I do, and the stress is killing me.

Any job that keeps you away from office politics is the best! Well done you.
