Short and sweet, I think the point you are trying to get is, i think I got this, wait for it… Doing what you love is the key to happiness.

Good one,

Plus: find a way to be sustained by it (usually earning money from it but not necessarily). Otherwise you can’t spend much time doing it.

So simple, right? Funny how we manage to over-complicate things!

I’m happy to say that I do what I love, and I’m a very happy person.

Blessings,
Andrea

Sometimes, though, doing what we love also demands doing what we rather not.

I object! *gasps from the courtroom filled with the self-improvement member audience*

What if you are doing what you love, but you’re stuck in a context that reinforces negative feelings? ;)

Love what you do – there will come a time where struggles will be in place for the do what you love.
Love is a state of mind an action – to love – to you need to love your job. Physically love your job and what you do.
Form accoounting to toilet scrubbing if you attempt to fill with love you will be happier.
I exercise caution in the “don’t do what you don’t love”
That can be a crutch to leave tasks that are challenging and may create new ideas and innovations – through struggle comes joy joy comes Love.

Simplify. It is so simple and so true. We spend so much of your lives trying to do everything when we really just need to do what we love and everything else will fal in place.

When you think about it, some of us really need to have this tattooed on our palms so that we don’t drift away and avoid doing the things we hate over and over again. Great guide.
