Blogger, Plumber, Teacher, Engineer, We Are Just Human
Many people these days get looked down on because of their job. Why? I have no idea. I would love to know why. So what if someone's job is too clean toilets all day, serve fast food or fixing boilers. We are all working for one reason - that reason is to earn money and live. Just because you are a teacher it doesn't make you any better than a fast food worker and just like being a manager of a high-top shop does not make you any better than a teacher either.
My first job was a nursery assistant. I am a qualified nursery worker but not high enough to be a nursery nurse. Of course, in the nursery I was working at there was a few nursery nurses and yes I had to do things they asked me to do because at the end of the day they had higher qualifications than me and it was their job to do that but does that 'higher' qualification make them a better person than me? Does it really make them a better worker than me? No it doesn't.
I worked hard in college to get my qualification. I wish I could of gone on to get my Level 3 so I could pursue my dreams of being my own boss and one day opening my own nursery but I couldn't. Not at that time because I had Mia but I was lucky enough to be able to pass my level 2 course. I then became an after-school play worker but that didn't last long due to money.
I am now a Blogger.
A proud Blogger.
I know there are people locally and over the net that are and have spoken about me being a Blogger. Maybe taking the p*ss but if I am honest, I don't care. They can say what they want to say because I have got plans, I have made targets for myself and all I can say is - watch this space! I am working hard on something that I absolutely love doing. Although I am rubbish at spelling and not very good at explaining things - I love writing, always have and always will. And I will not let anyone make me feel small for being a Blogger just because they have that 'higher qualification'.
At the end of the day a qualification is just a piece of paper. It doesn't make you better than anyone else. Why should it? Each and every one of us has worked hard to get where we are at right now. Even if people are working in places they don't want to work in, but they do it because they have too - why should they be judged?
Your boiler doesn't work or your toilet is playing up - who you going to call? A Plumber.
Your child is starting school... You need a teacher to teach your child.
You have to go back to work after Maternity leave.. You will need a nursery assistant/nurse or child minder to look after your child (or family if you're lucky)
You fancy a takeaway? A fast food worker will have to serve you that food.
You know that school your child is attending? You want it to be clean and safe don't you? The Care taker and cleaners do that job.
You want your child to cross the road safely on their way to school yes? The lolly pop woman/man will get you across safely.
You want to buy that new top for yourself in the shop? Take it to the till and the customer sales assistant will put it through the till for you and smile ever so politely.
Is there something wrong with your car? Lets take it down to the garage and let a mechanic fix it for you.
Do you want to read something interesting? Bloggers, Journalists and Writers do that.
Do you want to go out for food? The waiter/waitress will be serving you.
There are so many jobs in this world. Why should we look down at someone just because of their job? Everybody wants to get somewhere in life. They might not be at the job they love but why should they be judged. Why should they be made to feel so small because of what they do to earn money to make a living?
Next time before you judge someone by their job - take a minute and think of yourself. What is your job? Why do you do your job? Is it to earn money and make a living? - if yes, then try and think why they are working too. Also, are you going to need them one day in your life? I am sure you will.
