Hello Friends! Happy Friday! Today is a good day because I am getting off work at 2 today. I never get off at 2…unless it’s 2am.
Anyways, let’s just jump into this today.
My mom actually shared this one with me on Facebook this week. And I just knew I had to share it with all of you!
I think this is just a beautiful quote. I feel like we spend so much time trying to do what we are “supposed” to do. We are going to work to pay bills. The bills are from things we are told we have to have. Then there are the things we like to do, that we have to save to do. Vacations, traveling, activities, new electronics, and in my case…books! But in order to do all of this stuff, we have to work to make money. Yet, we are all stuck in jobs that we just don’t like.
Actually, I should clear up that I actually do like my job. It can be stressful at times, but I know what I am doing and I like knowing what I am doing. But, it’s not what I want to do with the rest of my life. I want to be an author. I want to own a coffee/tea shop/bookstore. I know there are tons of places to buy books that also sale coffee and tea, but my place would be different. How? I don’t know yet, but I know it’s going to be amazing.
Life is too short to do the things we hate. And I know that we can do jobs we want without ending up living in a box somewhere. Maybe it will be hard work to get to the point where we love our job as much as our hobbies, but hard work is what cleanses the soul.
