Do What You Love



I have a simple but genuine question for you: Do you love what you do?

If your answer is "no" or has been "no" at one time, what can/did you do to make a change?

Something to ponder on for your weekend!

Feedback is appreciated, I *heart* your comments!

I love that quote from him. I definitely do.

I am loving what I am doing. Steve Jobs' words this week have made an impact on quite a few people. Life is really too precious to spend too much time doing something you do not enjoy or find fulfilling. Working with these kids has been the best experience and I come home every single day with a smile (even if it's hidden underneath my exhaustion!). I know though that the minute I do not start loving what I'm doing then I have some serious thinking to do. But I do not think that that day will come anytime soon. This is what I'm meant to do, I believe :)

i've gotten lucky + actually love what i do -- both my day job (working as an au pair coordinator + doing national marketing for the company) + blogging. thank goodness! i can't imagine being in a situation where i hated my job every day - how horrible would that be?

i don't hate my job, but i certainly don't love it. and am trying to figure out if there's a way to change a few things so that i do.

Good question.. I love what I do because it gives me time to do the things I love to do...Meaning.. my job itself is kind of stinky..but the hours are short..the money isn't bad..and it gives me lots of free time to do other stuff.. Does that make sense??

I used that quote a lot when I was going through a job hate phase... but it's true, you have to find a happy medium.
But now with the stinky economic crisis in Greece, having a job whether you enjoy/like it or not really isn't a choice anymore. I know so many people who haven't been paid a salary since late last year, it's a question of survival in Greece right now :(
Anyhoos lady, have a top weekend!

These words are so special, and ring so true. Right now work is stressing me out a little bit, but I genuinely love it, so it's worth a little bit of stress!
I think with the horrible economy, people are settling, but I definitely think everyone needs to find something they're truly passionate about, and pursue it at all costs!
Lovely and thought provoking post, darling! xox

I am currently not working.. I quit my last job because I wasn't feeling happy.. I am still not sure did I do the right thing, but I hope I did.

Kristin said...

YES! Blogging and writing has made me SO much happier than a 9 to 5 did!

So so true and often time is all about mindset. :)

i love writing! it has always been my passion and what i spent my 20s doing. but then i had my kiddos and i love them dearly. it's hard because writing has taken a back seat but my girls mean so much to me!
