Have you ever been so completely immersed in what you were doing that you literally tuned everything and everyone out?
That happened to me this morning. I was up later than I should have been last night adding plugins and transferring files from another blog to this one.
Ever since I made the decision to phase out a couple of my blogs; to re-commit to and revive Taylor Cares, I’ve been anxious to get it done .
Like the prodigal writer who came to herself one day, I wanted needed to go home. To reunite with the blog that started my online journey. I realized I made a mistake when I left because none of the other blogs I was building brought any real satisfaction, nor did they give me a sense of accomplishment the way this one does.
Over the years I started feeling like I losing something. Something I needed for me.
And while I wasn’t exactly wasting time I may as well had been, because although my other endeavors are making money, they don’t allow me to be…
And they don’t make me smile. I like to smile.
When I woke up this morning, I was on a mission. There was one thing on my mind – getting this blog back online.
When I sat down at my desktop, coffee in hand, I had a smile on my face. I was loving life and my work felt like play.
I was so engaged that I forgot to walk my dog. Not only did I forget to walk him, I forgot he existed for 2 1/2 hours.
Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking, and don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. ~Steve Jobs ~
