“The great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do!” ~ Walter Bagehot.
This weekend our Saturday photo challenge over on GC and my site Weekly Prompts is Satisfaction, and was chosen by GC.
I thought very carefully about this word and asked myself a question. Am I satisfied?
Has my life given me satisfaction? Let’s find out.
I’ll start at the very beginning…
I had no ambition in life other than to be a wife and mother, and I found it hard to comprehend why any woman could possibly want or need anything else.
I fulfilled my ambition and I was satisfied.
Later I became what my late husband called a professional volunteer. I volunteered for everything, Sunday school teacher, hospice nursing assistant, classroom assistant, chair of the PTA, school governor.
I fulfilled these roles well and I was satisfied.
Against my husband’s wishes, I took up a part-time teaching assistant post at my children’s school.
I fulfilled this role well and I was satisfied.
At school it was suggested I apply to university and do a degree in teaching and learning.
I completed my degree and I was satisfied.
I was offered the job of teaching computing (ICT) to all age groups, and managing the computer network.
I fulfilled my role well and I was satisfied.
Now I’m retired my days are still busy.
I fulfil this role well and I am satisfied!
Okay, technically, this is a photo challenge, so here’s a satisfying photo of my All-in-One computer with its random screen saver!
