Do you love what you're doing?
December 7, 2015
Take a breath and think of your present. What are you doing with your time today? Are you on your usual routine? How long have you been doing what you're doing? But most importantly, do you love what you're doing?
My last visit to a Toastmaster meeting, a speaker, spoke about Happiness and how every one of us lives our lives in search of happiness. She ended her speech with the question. A question in which I don't recall because my memory is one of my weaker points, although, the question entailed the idea that happiness isn't something you search for, it's something that you accept into your life.
The reasons why we do what we do is mostly because we want to be happy, and because we want everyone around us to be happy. And so we begin to work hard for money, for our families, for our friends, just to make each other happy, regardless of whether we love what we do.
But we go about our days working hard at a job that we end up stressing about it. We end up doing what we don't like over and over again. We end up coming home tired and grey, and when asked the question "Are you happy?" they're reply would either be "I don't know" or simply "No."
So what's the point? What's the point of doing something that makes you grey and blue when you don't get a single smile out of it at the end of the day. If you're struggling or stressing, accept the little things that bring that little spark into your eyes, and find that something you like doing, and do that. Then spend the rest of your days turning what you like into what you love. And that could induce that happiness you seek.

Accept your happiness in the small things that make you glow all over, and spread that glow to the people around you. Shine your light on others and your happiness will grow.
Keep smiling and loving!
