Happy man

Mr. Hamid is 63 years old, he is the cleaner. I always see him put on smile while cleaning.
Yesterday morning I saw him whistling while cleaning car park. I greeted him and conducted the short interview with him. I would like to share it with all of you.
Coolingstar9:" Good morning, Mr. Hamid, you are always so cheerful, can you tell me why? "
Hamid:" Good morning to you. I really enjoy working, it make me happy."
Coolingstar9:" Have you ever thought of retirement?"
Hamid:"No, I work because I want to make myself active both my body and mind, I enjoy interacting with people in the working place. I work from 7.30am to 4.pm daily. After work, I do some gardening work at home like watering plants. At night, I like to read books, watching T.V programmes,etc."
Coolingstar9:" Do you work for living?"
Hamid:" No, I had saved enough for my old age before that."
Coolingstar9:" Mr. Hamid, thanks for the short interview."
What is your view about this happy man?

well, that's the very essence of the word "work"!

when you're doing something that you really enjoy doing! it's never always financial... but satisfaction derives from the things you do...

when u see the importance of what u are doing and when you know that you are of great importance to others, as well...

when u contribute to the welfare of others...

when you get happiness when you make other's happy... then that is WORK!

very nice testimonial there from Mr. Hamid... thank u for sharing, pal! take care and cheers!!!!

Hi coolingstar.. i guess its the happiness and satisfaction to work even though he has enough to look after himself in his old age. The man is really healthy at mind and body at even such an age.. those people are lucky to have hamid working for them and they need to give back the same love and care just like how you, my dear friend had given hamid :) hats of to you!

Our Love Story,
The very essence of the word "work"!
This is not purely on financial groud but the satisfaction derives from the work you do. It can be little things like giving welfare to others, make others happy... then that is WORK!
Jen, you enlighten me and readers. That is the " key " of happiness.
Happy new year to you and all readers.

kinda surprise me as how much he earns and how much is the saving for the old age?

really surprise me.

but at least he is happy and not stress up with the environment like some others (including me!). the environment sometimes is very stressful, not the tons of works.
