I’ve seen this a few times this week, and I had to finally repost it. So much truth. A dog groomers’ heart is full of love and patience, our smocks sometimes have mysterious smells lingering from the day, hair splinters in places you’d never believe, aches in odd places from sometimes contorting our bodies in ways they shouldn’t in order to make a dog as comfortable as possible among many other things. I love my job, I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Sure, I never went to college. I didn’t know what degree I would even want if I had gone. I’m so glad this is the job I chose. It is endlessly rewarding yet challenging. I have coworkers who push me to be better everyday, help me refine my skills and help get me through difficult (and sometimes long and literally shitty) days. “Find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.” So much truth in that statement. I work sometimes 7 days a week, by choice simply because I love my job.
