We have all done thankless, lonely work.
The lonely work that no one else notices or cares about, but also often results in the biggest strides forward.
We have done it, but we don’t like it.
We have done it, but wish someone would notice.
We have done it, but wish we did not have to.
We have done it, and knew in our hearts it was meaningful work.
We have done it, and knew that it was important regardless of no recognition.
We have done it, and knew it mattered.
So why is the hope to not have to do the thankless work? The hope that one day this kind of work will finally go away, once and for all.
Or the hope that we could do the thankless, meaningful work and, by some multi dimensional cosmic shift, be thanked for thankless work…. by lots of people.
Why do we wish we won’t have to do THAT kind of work again?
What if we looked for the thankless, meaningful work?
What if we sought it out?
