How can you love your life if you don’t love what you do?
If two-thirds of your life is spent doing something you don’t love, how can you?
Back in the day I believed you could separate your work and life.
So even if you didn’t love your work, you could say, I work hard and play hard. Or, It affords me the choices to do the things I love, but today I see it differently.
When your plate is jammed with omelet, there is little room for pancakes.
We work too many hours to fit in the life we love on the side.
The old paradigms also imply that your work and life are mutually exclusive.
This might have been true in the bad old days when most humans were laboring draught horses, but in this modern age it is much easier to do what you love (and make a barn-load of hay doing it).
But even if that isn’t possible for you.
Even if you don’t do what you love, you can still choose to love what you do.
You can love a party even if you don’t love every person in the room, and you can love your work even if you don’t love every hour.
Stop focusing on the things that you don’t love, and focus on the things you do.
Simply through practice you will learn to love what you do!
How can you love your life any other way?
