We do not all have the luxury of doing what we love, but we do all have the ability to put love into what we do.
Not everyone can earn a living doing what they are passionate about.
Necessity demands that many, if not most, of us earn our livings doing things that have very little to do with that which bring us personal joy and fulfillment.
We often have to settle for work that is simply work.
We trade our labor, skill, and knowledge for money, but we must find happiness elsewhere.
Still, there is no reason that our occupation, the thing that occupies so much of our time, energy, and attention, should be an empty task that we perform without care.
Every act throughout our day is one we choose to do with or without love.
Our work is no different.
