In the summer of 2019 I worked as a landscaper. It was brutal. My boss—he had been working outdoors for 20 years—taught me many valuable lessons, however, one of them stood out.
“I hope working outdoors in the heat will make you appreciate the air conditioning when you get a nice job.”
I will never forget that.
Coming home sticky, sore, and often in pain gave me an understanding of how uncomfortable things can get. I even stepped on a nail that summer.
It’s always the little things that are easy to dismiss. Appreciate your air conditioning.
