Do What You Love

There are many articles on the internet advising people to do what they love to be happy.  Isn’t that everyone’s desire?  Don’t we all want to do what we love?  Have you ever sat down and really thought about what you love to do?  It sounds easy, but for me, it really wasn’t that easy to do.

Life has a way of getting in the way of my plans and desires.  I’m not complaining.  My life has been very interesting.  I’m not a world traveler, but I have lived in 4 different states now and I have never been a member of the military.  I spent the first 32 years of my life in one state.  The last almost 20 years have taken me to the other 3 states.  My life now is nothing like I thought it would be 20 years ago.  I’m still not complaining!  I’m actually pretty happy with my life right now.

Recently I’ve had the opportunity to sit down and think about what I love to do.  It wasn’t that easy.  I mean, I love to do many things.  For some, this is probably an easy task.  I think I am like many people who haven’t had the luxury of thinking about themselves because they have spent most of their lives thinking about and caring for others.  Again, I’m not complaining. I am a natural caregiver.

I love to read.  There are not enough minutes in the day to satisfy my desire for reading.  I enjoy many topics and many authors.  The internet is an incredible source for all kinds of information, good and bad.  I find inspiration daily on many social media sites.  I enjoy finding and sharing information on many social media sites.

I hope you take a few moments today to think about what you love to do.  Or, maybe you are one of the blessed ones and you already do what you love.  My advice, take a little time each day to focus on YOU, that is time well spent!
