Going back and forth in circles having experiences, tales and dreams
Over every frosty hill in winter thawing out the coldness over two paths diverged in streams
Being able to read the seasons and times of the skills involved
Asking for help and receiving help in the active roll call
Counseling those needing advice just starting in the field
Keeping check of the duties and rolls of the job hot at the heels
The best type of learning is life itself as its a journey and not a destination
Only taking the greatest amount of perseverance to learn life's wisdom by turning around in calm patience
Discerning a job that was helpful to expanding the love of wisdom for other people in a quiet calm zone
Is the best type of learning that's not involving the phone
Certainly is a job for me to hold
Every individual has a dream - handsome or beautiful - a story itself to be re-told
Reading the silver lining is like turning the page for one's own life
Never knowing the very end but making the best with light
In every individuals life, struggles and joys hit hard and fast
Now, in the present we as humans always have the power to bounce back
Get back up and do not ever give up
Live life to its fullest, with joys, hopes, sorrows, and wins and losses
In every time learn that with all the moments there is the present cost
For this, remember to make the best of every second
Encircling the circle of life is the beautiful quiet of life's lessons

When there was a problem with the restrooms, or when a heavy shelf needing to be moved, or a spill in an aisle - I was always the first to be willing to help and be able to clean it productively in a safe and friendly manner.
I would demonstrate my knowledge and decisive ability to make quick decisions if a sanitary issue came up and needed handling, I would be called upon to be dependable - whether It would be to take out the trash, clean the restrooms, help a customer with a cart, or clean the bottom of the shelf or the top, or remove stickers, I would be the first to go help respectfully and quickly.

My daily tasks would be to have a checklist in the morning and to go through the checklist. Everyday I would have a certain area or place that needed addressing more than another.
