Love What You Do
I love when someone says to me “I love what I do” or “I have the best job in the world.” I am envious and completely in awe of those people. I am 53-years-old and have never had the fortune to make that statement.
I have a good career. I’m paid well. I’ve had the fortune to work for and with supportive sponsors of my work. I am fortunate to have made many choices that have never really put my job or career jeopardy. In short, I have no reason to complain. Yet, for the most part my career leaves me feeling empty.
I have often taken the most opportune path, rather than the most satisfactory path. I opted for work that was of interest but not work that I truly had a passion for. So, it really isn’t surprising that I have never said those magic words, “I love what I do.”
If acknowledging a problem is the first step to fixing it, then I feel confident that I’m on my way to a better situation. I just need to keep reminding myself, “Even though you’re 53-years old, it’s never too late.”
