February is the month of love, and so I have to ask: Do you love your work?
As we spend the majority of our lives in a career, shouldn’t our work be something we love? A recent survey sponsored by Monster.com and conducted by market research firm GFK found 22% of workers in the U.S. said they loved their jobs so much they would do it for free, 15% of American workers said they disliked or hated their jobs, and 31% said they were merely satisfied. Where do you fall today?
I believe our work should be where our passion meets our purpose for being on this planet. Our work should be a place where we are fulfilled, and where we make a difference in the lives of others.
May you reflect on your work this month and how it can be a place of deep satisfaction for you and where you can be a blessing to those whose lives you touch.
May the light of your soul bless your work with love and warmth of heart. May you see in what you do the beauty of your soul. May the sacredness of your work bring light and renewal to those who work with you and to those who see and receive your work. May your work never exhaust you. May it release wellsprings of refreshment,inspiration, and excitement. May you never become lost in bland absences. May the day never burden. May dawn find hope in your heart,approaching your new day with dreams, possibilities, and promises. May evening find you gracious and fulfilled. May you go into the night blessed, sheltered, and protected. May your soul calm, console, and renew you.
To Bless the Space Between Us, John O’Donohue
