I am lucky enough to have experienced work that I love. Teaching mindfulness and yoga to children encourages them to build better relationships with themselves, their friends and family, and the world around them. I can’t think of anything more rewarding than that.
But it wasn’t always that way. I’ve worked many a long hour in jobs I disliked just to earn some money and because it’s what ‘everyone else did.’
Maybe you love cooking, music or design? Maybe you’re passionate about the environment or making a difference in the lives of others, but feel you can’t make money following your passions?
We are so conditioned to work ‘for the other man’ in order to get ahead, often working long hours for very little in return. Worse still, we dislike the work we do.
Today, I encourage you to consider a different paradigm.
What would your life look like if you were getting paid to do what you love? What steps can you take to make your vision a reality?
Is it going to take grit, determination and perseverance? Yes. Do you have what it takes? Yes!!! Believe you can.
Work is love made visible.

This photos was snapped spontaneously by one of the students from school as the kids played with my hair and goofed around 🤪
I think she’s captured perfectly the joy I receive from working with children and being in their company…
🌼 They remind me not to take life too seriously
🌼 I love the way they are in complete awe and wonder of the magic of life
🌼 Children are full of enthusiasm, even about the smallest of things
🌼 They say what’s on their mind! Zero filter 🙈 ..this can be scary, but it can also be so beautiful and pure that my heart melts every time 😌
And that folks, are just a few of the reasons I friggen love my work ❤️🌈
Do you love what you do? If yes, or if no, why? I’d love to know if your work aligns with your heart’s values…
