Yesterday (29 July) it was the 12 hour work shift, mostly driving, from Durban (05h45) to Bergville, near Harrismith, Ladysmith and back to Durban (18h15).
It’s not the easiest job I do but certainly not the worst. In fact, on this trip I thought a number of times about how I love my job.
It’s perhaps about changing one’s mind to find the goodness in the job not looking for a job that we think might suit us.
As you can see the one big positive, other than meeting many interesting people, is that my camera can always accompany me.
This is the view that greeted me yesterday morning as I drove down into Bergville, KwaZulu-Natal.

“Breaks don’t get enough credit in today’s world.If you take a break, you’re seen as lazy.
How many times have you found yourself trying EVERYTHING to solve a problem,
only to find that after getting up to brush your teeth, the solution comes to you in
the middle of it.
People who don’t take breaks get easily discouraged because they spend all this
time and energy and it’s just not working and that doesn’t do any good in terms of
the self-talk that goes on inside their head.
Breaks give you the space necessary for the answer to come.
They’re just as important as the work itself” ~ Brian Kim
