Grateful @ Your Library
How much better might we serve ourselves by letting up on the relentless disappointments and focusing, if just once per day, on all that we love about our jobs, our profession, and the libraries in which we have the privilege to work?She takes her own advice to heart and offers a number of reasons why she enjoys her library and being a librarian. I identify with several including being surrounded by knowledge and interesting and friendly coworkers. I also greatly appreciate having a license to be curious about everything. No one asks why you should be interested in "topic x" when you're a librarian, whether it's quantum gravity or Peter Rabbit.
What are you grateful for in your library or in the library field as a whole? Will you commit to finding one thing to be grateful for each day? It could improve your morale and through you, the morale of your whole library.
