I am feeling extra-blessed these days, with six precious grand babes,and a happy, healthy family. Life is full, and good, and I am feeling oh-so content, treasuring the little things, like hot cocoa, and sleeping late on Saturday mornings.
I have a challenging grown up girl job that I look forward to go to each work day, and since I spend a lot of time there, that is a silver lining in my life as well.
You know, there is a saying that I have shared here before, on one of my weekly words to live by Sundays that comes to my mind:
“The grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love and something to hope for.” (Allan Chalmers)
I would have to agree, although I will admit when I first ever read the first part...something to do...I never really thought of the "do" as being my grown up girl job. I think I always pictured that part as in doing things around the house,like crafts or decorating, or doing things for those I love.
When I was thinking about all of this last night, I realized it is (or can be) about your grown up girl job. And I then stumbled upon an article that proved this, right here.
To further that point, I was reading my most favorite work inspiring blogs, and I came across this recent post.
It's not rocket science.
It's about living.
Living every day of our lives.
Doing work we enjoy is part of the big picture of the life we should be living..
It really is as simple as that.
