Today I am grateful for the job that I have. I have been jobless before and I have stayed unwelcomed in other people’s homes. I know what it feels like to be looked down upon and I am so grateful that I have a job and that I earn a salary on a monthly basis. I will never take that for granted.
My job is demanding but I will take that any day over not having it. I have met so many amazing people through my job and I have grown as a person through the opportunities given to me. If you would have told 15 year old me that I would be living this life 15 years later I would have thought that you are tripping. I would never have believed it. Not only would i have shouted at you, I would have screamed my lungs out at you. Through this I moved away from my home country and have made myself useful. I am so grateful today as i look back not in anger but appreciating my journey and drawing strength for a better future. For i hope the future has many roses laid out for me.
This job has afforded me plane tickets to countries that I have always dreamt of. If not for covid I was planning more trips because of my job. I have been to Asia, North America and east africa, most southern african countries as well. I have been able to afford my dream vacation once or twice. This job does not pay as much as people think but this job is something that I have always dreamt of and the flexibility that comes with it is something that people take for granted. I am so grateful for everything and my heart is content…
