Do what you love!

Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are filled with inspirational quotes these days.  So many, that it is impossible to read them all.  It is even more impossible for all of them to be meaningful to everyone.  But everyone can find one or two quips that strike a chord and resonate some kind of meaningful influence all day long.  Over the last few months, the quotes I have noticed most frequently have a similar message:

"Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life."

"The only way to do great work is to love what you do."

"Doing what you love is where happiness lives."

I know a bunch of people who live this way every day.  Lots of them do so with their jobs.  Other folks do so with hobbies or other creative endeavors.  The lucky folks get to do what they love at work and at home... all the time!

I also know people who don't get to do what they love.  They only do.  They don't love it.  Some barely even like what they do.  They go to a job they dislike, then head home too tired to pursue their passions outside of the workplace.  And they are stuck.  They are in a rut and they can't get out.  Too tired to find their way out of the rut and too tired to enjoy life after the job that provides no joy.

Imagine a world where no one was in that rut!
