Do What You Love

It's so easy to get off track. One day you are doing the things you should be doing and life is good. You enjoy working and you feel like the work you are doing is worthwhile. Then one day out of the blue you take a wrong turn and all of a sudden you are way out in left field lost in the tall weeds.
You think if you work harder and smarter you'll find your way back but then you get in a rut and you spend so much time doing things that are important to other people and you forget about what's important to you.
Each year Jilda and I get lots of high school graduation invitations and we try to come up with gifts that suits the graduate. A fountain pen, a book, or perhaps a nice journal for keeping track of their lives but I think by far the most valuable gift is a little advice I always give.
Go to college and study a lot of stuff. Read lots of books and travel if you get the chance. But most importantly, spend a great deal of time thinking about what's important to you. Don't worry about making money, just focus on the things that make you smile. Do your best to find your bliss because when you Do what you love, and love what you do, your vocation becomes your vacation. You get lost in your work and you stay excited about the mysteries of life. I believe that if you do what you love, you will make a life and not just a living. Believe me, there is a huge difference.
