I often have people comment on the way I look when I talk about my work. “Wow,” they say, “I can tell you really love your job!”
And I do! And I know how they can tell.
When I talk about the work I do my eyes light up, my hands and arms swoop and dive through the air and my voice quickens and jumps with pleasure. I have flashing eyes, a smile on my face, and passion in my voice when I talk about what I do.
Are you where you need to be? Are you where you want to be? Are you doing work that makes your eyes shine, your laugh come forward and your body throw itself into full, gleeful motion? I hope so.
Don’t get me wrong, I know that work is not all “picture-perfect” all the time. Even doing work I love there are still elements of my day or week that I don’t exactly look forward to. But on the whole I’m glad I am where I am, doing what I do.
