Do What You Love
I read a great online article by Deepak Chopra, MD about the importance of following one's bliss and I immediately thought of my husband Larry. A few years ago, he left a position he had held for over 17 years to embark on a new journey where the risks and rewards fell solely on his shoulders. He has steadfastly worked seven days a week on his new venture, riding the rollercoaster of self-employment, especially during The Great Recession. Regardless of the difficulties and occasional setbacks, he looked me squarely in the eye the other day and said that he wouldn't quit his venture for anything. He is truly passionate about it and is doing what he loves. For some, doing what one loves can be a vocation or avocation. For Larry, I believe he's combined them both into a state of bliss. Who could ask for more?
