- Seeing two happy construction workers who were working under the heat of the sun made her realize how blessed she was
- Complaining is not the solution to having a happy working life
- Every day, we learn very good lessons if we pay attention
Have you ever felt that you have the most stressful and worst job ever? Here is a realization of a netizen that went viral, after posting her message on social media.
We used to complain about the problems we have in life.

It needs love and dedication to the job that you have chosen. There is no such thing as an easy job because all of us have to work hard. But then, it only matters how much we do love our jobs. Simply working without loving it would only lead to discouragement and disappointments.
At the end of her message, she appreciated the dedication and hard work of the the two men and thanked them for making the country a better place to live in.
“Ps: Everyday, we learn very good lessons if we pay attention,” she wrote.
