People are often shocked when I tell them what I do for a residing. I am a groundskeeper at a local cemetery. It’s approximately 40 acres of land that has to be kept up correctlyâ€¦ Both of us have to make sure the hedges are trimmed, the grass is mowed, and the locale is kept up nice and tidy. I have to admit, it can be hard especially in the peak heating and cooling seasons, but the people I was with and I are able to manage, then on top of keeping up with everything, I have to coordinate burial services, assign plots, facilitate tours, and dig graves. This is very challenging work indeed, but it is fulfilling work. It has certainly taught me a lot about perspective. I have found that no matter what kind of stress I am under, the stress of having enjoyed ones die is by far the worst thing. No matter how I am feeling, I can see these people are always grieving to greater extremes than whatever I happen to be dealing with. This has helped me get by over the years as I realize that I have a pretty good life for the most part. I have a roof over my head, food on the table, and my family is doing alright. I have considered changing to other jobs, but I certainly like this style of work. If I did go for another work choice though, I guess I would definitely try to get into the Heating and Air Conditioning industry, but after the long mornings of working in the sunlight and in the cold weather, I guess I would love to help work on climate control systems.
