What’s a humble job you’d really enjoy?
When I was at uni, I used to clean people’s houses. Mostly my friends’ houses (they were all much older than me—I married young and my first husband was a Grown Up).
I really enjoyed it.
It was satisfying, I worked with my hands, I could see the results of what I was doing.
I think I’d enjoy gardening too.
Your turn. There’s no universal definition of “humble”, just whatever you think of as a humble job.
And there’s no shade in the word “humble” either. The humble jobs are often the most important ones.
Set a timer for 5 minutes, and muse on this question.
