My dad is one of the hardest working men I know. Which is why I love it when he says he feels like he’s never worked a day in his life.

Love it


Many of us are passionate beings looking to share our gifts with the world. Our days are filled with endless responsibilities and distractions and staying true to the vision for our future becomes work. Even when we love it.

Because of my dad, I never grew up thinking that work and having fun were on two different ends of the spectrum.

That’s not to say that work isn’t work. I knew he had long nights, heavy loads and can count on one hand the number of sick days he took. I know he had bad days, stolen merchandise and unpaid receivables. But I also know he loves it.

My mantra, living the dream, is a little ode to my dad. My dad, a successful business owner who never felt like he worked a day in his life because he loves what he does. And it’s all he ever wanted for us too.

This week’s journal entry should explore this idea of loving what you do. When we do more of what we love we feel strong. Our moods can be better and we may even feel focused enough to take another step toward our dream.

Draw a line down the middle of your page. On the top of one side write LOVE and on the other side BECAUSE. Now think about all the activities you perform in a typical day and assign them to either category.

How many activities do you do each day that you love? These activities bring you joy, make you feel strong and give you sense of general well being.

How many activities do you do each that you do just because? This is a list for everything else.

How do your lists look? Are they balanced? Does this visual give you an idea on where you can make some changes?

The possibilities and YOU are limitless!
