Miracle Morning - Do What You Love

When asked the secret or key to happiness Sandra Day O'Connor, Supreme Court Justice, answered without a moments hesitation. "Do what you love."

As the  first woman to be appointed to the Supreme Court in 1981 O'Connor was certainly a hugely accomplished person. Getting to a position like that takes hard work and passion. Words of wisdom from her are not be overlooked.

Does the concept of 'Do What You Love' seem like a pipe dream? Try switching it around a bit and figuring out, through enthusiasm and appreciation, how you can make what you are doing currently something you love. Self improvement and increased effort help with that. Balance can also help.
If you are in need of balance check out my recent post on avoiding splat, also known as crash and burn

I visited a coffee shop yesterday and in talking with the owner it became apparent that she was doing what she loved. As she spoke of how people were starting to come from neighboring towns for her shops coffee because they loved it you could hear the pride in her voice.

At my husbands work the employees are currently involved in a steps challenge. Whoever gets the most steps is the winner and they are doing the challenge in teams. Increased energy that comes from increased physical activity can help with loving what you do. Smart employer.

What do you love? If you take notice of what activities energize you and what drains you it will help with identifying what you love.
Once you've identified it be conscious of making time for those things.

Have a great Thursday and stay tuned for more from My Middleton Chronicles.
