This week as some of us spend “Spring Break” with our kids, I find myself counting my blessings. My heart is filled with gratitude, because I am blessed to have the career that I do. I can honestly say that I am in LOVE with my job. I often hear friends say how they hate going to work or have had a hard time with their bosses or anything they could think about to complain. But not me, I love going to work. Being able to create works of art, and see the faces of my clients when they see their gallery for the first time. That is priceless. I love that! Or when I get an email or text from a mom thanking me for giving their daughter an experience that was unforgettable. I dig that! My job has been so rewarding and worth all the dedication, passion and commitment.
Don’t get me wrong, my days are not always filled with joy and happiness but rather they are filled with excitement. Owning my own business is a roller coaster. There has been many sleepless nights, working weekends and tough decisions to make. But the story of my business is certainly not just a “tough road” story, but a love story.
As I come up to almost 3 years in business, I can say with certainty that GOD has blessed me and my family. I truly believe that every day you should go to work happy and excited. Life is too short to waste your time on a job that you don’t love. Now, you don’t have to have your own business to be in love with your job. You can be a teacher, a waiter or what ever job you have. You just have to bring passion, commitment, dedication and LOVE what you do. Being in LOVE is a state of mind – an attitude.
What are you doing to “Be in LOVE with your job”?
