I Love My Work!!

I woke up today thinking about all the non-work-work I had to do-cleaning my house, collecting expense receipts for taxes, etc. I thought how lucky I am to love my work, and how great it will be to get back in my workshop and start something new. How few people must look forward to their "work." I used to listen to a radio psychiatrist, David Viscott, who always advised people to find what you are good at and you will have found how to make yourself happy forever!

Along these lines, I found this quote from Norman Vincent Peale:
"Think enthusiastically about everything; but especially about your job. If you do, you'll put a touch of glory in your life. If you love your job with enthusiasm, you'll shake it to pieces. You'll love it into greatness, you'll upgrade it, you'll fill it with prestige and power."

Dawn of a New Day, Brooch by Ruth Shapiro*
So, I will love cleaning my house, and then I will love even more going to my workshop!!! Have a good week!
