Blessed Sunday: Love, Time and Work

Last Updated on September 4, 2020 by Paula

The year is about to end.

Have you realized it yet?  It is like it has suddenly become the trending topic all over.  Some look forward to finishing the year the right way, others dread the end thinking they haven’t done much yet, and of course, there are actually a  handful who actually think and believe that the world would be ending sometime this month (Oh, no! Not before I get my Christmas bonus!).

Of course, we are all aware that there are 366 days this year.  We go to work, eight hours a day, five days a week.  We can tell with certainty what time it will be an hour form now.  We know that tomorrow will be the day after today.  Time has always been there, ticking constantly.  It is just our concept of it, how it flies when we are having fun and how slow it is when we are stuck into something we don’t enjoy doing.

What it all comes down to is how we spend our time, what we do and why we do it.

Your time well spent means that you love what you do.  Enjoying what you do makes a big difference in how you look at time and how you look forward to your day.

Admittedly, not a lot have the fortune of doing what they love.  You may find yourself waking up each morning, dragging yourself to a place where eight hours, five days a week, you die a little inside, just because you need to. You have to.

But just because you are one of the many who stare at the clock, marveling how five minutes before five o’clock seemed like five hours, who can’t wait to end another desolate day, doesn’t mean that it is too late to turn your desolation to jubilation.

Learn to celebrate each success and lessons learned.  Love your work and be open to challenges.  Believe me, it is tough.  I have spent countless sleepless nights wondering why I put up with my job and what can I do about it, then I realize it all boils down to learning to love what you do.

As Freud once said, “Love and work, work and love…that’s all there is.”

Blessed Sunday, everyone!
