DO WHAT YOU LOVE

I apologize for my absence online the last few days. I’ve been traveling with the family in celebration of Spring Break here in Texas. Though physically exhausted and uber behind on sleep, the time spent with my little family was nothing short of great! Enlightening even! I am so grateful for each of them – unique characters, but all of them possess insurmountable love for the other. *swoon*

Some people might look at me cock-eyed if I say I’m glad to be back at work, however. Doing what I do. Though, 5-10-15 years ago, I might’ve called me crazy, too.
 AND DO IT OFTEN

Here’s a thought for you, lovelies! Remember this today, this week, this year and always.

You have choices in life. Decisions are sometimes based on what the world expects of you versus what you desire. And with that follows regret most times. Guilty...guiltyguiltyguilty. I am making a conscious effort to find time to do what I love more and work towards doing it full time... personally and professionally. Can I honestly say that I am where I want to be professionally? No. Personally? Absolutely not, but before I settle and commit to something for security reasons, I need to first figure out what I love. I am no in way disregarding how blessed and thankful I am for having a job and how much I really have grown to love it, but every opportunity is a stage in our forever-evolving lives and who knows where this will take me.

Make sure your passions stays afloat and do not get lost in the sea of regrets purely due to security.

Security is important – don’t get me wrong. But jobs require a profuse amount of sacrifice, for which you would hate to waste on something unfulfilling. Forgive the cliché but life is way too short to settle, to conform and to push back your passions for the lifestyle you think you are supposed to be living. Rediscover what you love and just do it. Do not let the world hinder you. Do what you love, love what you do and do it often.

Make sure you find that "extra hour" to either do what you love or discover what you love.

“If our poor die of hunger, it is not because God does not care for them. Rather, it is because neither you nor I are generous enough. It is because we are not instruments of love in the hands of God. We do not recognize Christ when once again He appears in the hungry man, in the lonely woman, in the child who is looking for a place to get warm.” (Note: You may replace God by whatever you know is true.)

“Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of peace of the world.”

“Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.”
-Mother Teresa
