Day 14: A humble job you’d really enjoy

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.

Happy writing!
