Do you know what day it is? YUP, it is HUMP DAY! For many, you are DREADING the rest of the work week. Are you already longing for the weekend? I LOVE Wednesdays (even Mondays). The truth is…. I don’t mind going to work. I am a recovering work-a-holic BUT when you LOVE what you do, it is really work? I have talked about the struggles I have over the last few months to find what I truly LOVE again. Living life on life’s terms has been a struggle and has me rethinking what it is I really LOVE to do.
I saw on a blog a checklist for figuring out if you truly LOVE what you do… so I decided to give it a shot and see what happens. Why don’t you try it with me?
First up…Never a dull day! Okay, my days have gotten a little dull. MS has caused me to struggle in doing things but on those days when I am focused…. WATCH OUT! I tend to have so many ideas going through my head, I tire myself out! LOL! The ideas are great but I just can’t seem to put them into gear. Last minute parties – of course. Last minute fundraiser – wouldn’t miss doing it. BUT now I have added the love of creating angels. The joy an angel can bring to someone as they share a story of someone who has passed is something I treasure. The creativity gets my blood flowing!
Meetings? Love them! I love leading discussions to help others grow their business. I do struggle when there are multiple conversations going on at the same time – my brain goes into overload. I feel like the teacher telling students “only person can talk at a time”. LOL! So, do I LOVE them? No, but they do get my juices flowing.
Inspiration is around the corner. Hubby said something the other night “You see the possibility of angels in everything” and it’s true. I had a friend give me some jewelry pieces to combine and make an angel for her and I’m over the moon excited. Don’t get me wrong, I still LOVE Thirty One. I LOVE being around other Thirty One consultants who are smart, confident, funny, giving and dedicated. They each inspire me in their own way to be better and to reach for the stars.
Work = part of life. You enjoy life and work. You feel alive and joyful not just at home but also at your desk. When you love your work, it’s a part of your life.
I think this says it all.
S0 much to explore! When you love your work, it’s like peeling an onion. There are always more layers to discover and explore. When you hate your work it’s also like peeling an onion – but all you find are more tears.
Are you discovering or are you shedding tears?
You hardly ever look at the clock. This is definitely me. I can get lost in my office working on my blog, crafting angels, creating ideas and planning the future. You know the saying “time flies when you are having fun” well it does for me!
So what is the result of this check list for YOU? Do you LOVE what you do or are you just working to pay the bills? Don’t get me wrong, I do the same thing – I mean, the bill collectors want their money but I enjoy all of it. I LOVE the combination of my Thirty One business and my angels. Want to know more about my Thirty One business and how it might be able to change YOUR life, just ask. Not only do you get paid BUT there are some AWESOME perks.
If you don’t LOVE what you do, maybe it is time for a change. Life is too short to wait for “it” to come so you can retire and enjoy life. Why not enjoy it NOW!
Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
