Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy. ~Kahlil Gibran
I really meant to meet my goal of a post almost every day. But I got lost in the work for a few days this week. After Monday, I've been trying to locate a new home for everyone living in that group home I mentioned. Plus I still have all my regular work and meetings to make sure other people in other homes or locations are still doing Ok and receiving the supports they need. I am behind on reports and paperwork which is the only thing the bosses look at unless someone complains.
Today I had 9 client meetings at one home with the same professional consultants providing information in each meeting (RN, RD, RT, PT, ST, BACB, QMRP, etc). No lunch, though there were pastries and water. I was very tired and irritable by the time I arrived home.
I love my work. But I am so drained sometimes by the work that I just don't have anything left. I wish that all the service providers loved their work and weren't mostly in it for the money. It would make my job easier and happier.
