Love Your Craft
Love that rush you feel when you kick off a new project. That tingle down your spine. That glint in your eye.
Love when you push yourself further, faster - not because you have to, but because you want to find those edges and stretch the boundaries of what is possible.
Love learning new things about your work and this world and yourself.
Love serving others and sharing your gift, your passion, your expertise.
Love bringing your ideas to life.
Love making it happen and getting things done.
Love that exact moment when that thing that only existed inside your mind and heart finally manifests in the outside world for everyone else to experience.
Love finishing and then diving back in again.
Love that sense of satisfaction when your head hits the pillow after a long, hard day.
Love that smile on your face when you're purposely on purpose.
You are living the dream. You are doing what you were born to do. That is love.
I saw that last year on the local Motor City Connect website of networking in metro Detroit. It's byCharlie Wollberg who calls himself "founding partner and chief troublemaker"at Curve Detroit. I've never had the pleasure of meeting Charlie, but applaud this Valentine to all of us dedicated to our calling in life, be it storytelling, librarianship, teaching, history, WHATEVER!
I suspect you will feel the same way, but also there will be times you need the reminder. Thank you, Charlie!
