Love it and live it.

I first came across this clip in my Facebook news feed over a year ago. Seconds in, I was entranced. Not only did the precision and the physicality of the work draw me in, but the sheer joy radiating from the baker as he worked hypnotized me.

Every now and again, I watch this video. Usually, I watch it a few times back to back. I just like seeing someone work at something they love. It reminds me of why I put so much effort into my social work career. As much as we can, we should love what we do. It keeps us energized. We become motivated, diligent students because we want to learn more and be better. When we love our work, we can share our passion and gifts with others.  No matter how you spend your days– as a teacher, a landscaper, a lawyer, a bus driver, a stay-at-home parent–whatever it is, I hope it brings you joy. We have this one life, and even though we all will experience overwhelming pain and frustration at times, we deserve those shining moments.

    The person loves his work. He’s devoted to his work. He’s doing what many of us fear that we can do – he’s doing what he loves.

      Exactly! It’s a risk to go after what your heart truly wants. Most people don’t take the chance.

      Thanks for reading!

      I love this clip! I seen it before and got that chill in my spine.

      Lots of things worth doing are hard. It’s OK for things to be difficult so long as you love the process.
