Service Boot Camp: Happy in Your Work

Service Boot Camp - Day 28:

We did it! We did it! We did it!

28 days of voluntary enlistment in service boot camp was all that I'd hoped for and more.
At times it was a bit brutal, I'll admit, and the re-enactments a little too militant-like, but the pay-off in what I have learned about myself and life in general is sublime.
And although some things in my life took a backseat to my goal to serve others this month (such as diet and exercise...tsk, tsk...) I sense that I am stronger now in new ways.
And that feels good.

My husband jokingly pointed out that I picked the month with the least amount of days to focus on service. Oh, well, we've all got to start somewhere, right?

Fellow boot-campers, I salute you!
Thank you for enlisting and serving so bravely.
You all deserve medals!

Day 28: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED, but far from complete.
There will always be work to do...serving others.

As they say in the 1957 movie Bridge on the River Kwai,
"in a job like yours, even when it's finished, there's always one more thing to do."
And in the words of Colonel Siato,
"Be happy in your work."
