A Pespective on Work
Today is my first 4th of July that I’ve had “off” in 13 years.
What I mean by that is that for the past 13 years I was not working in an employee/employer role. I was doing my own working gigs and also playing the role of stay-at-home caregiver.
Today, I have the “day off” from my part-time gig I attracted in late February (I still love it!). It is funny because as I have this day off, I am compelled to sit down and “work” (otherwise known as play for me). I want to continue to expand my coaching and photography passions and one way is to continue my training and another is to continue to explore my own thoughts and beliefs through writing.
So, here I sit on my “day off” sitting in my office, writing and doing homework. Some might see it as work. I see it as a scrumptious use of my time.
It is all a matter of perspective and alignment.
Do what feels good is all that is required for a life that feels like work and play are actually synonymous. Sometimes it is a practice-makes-perfect kind of alignment. I believe whole heartedly that if you intend to see/feel that work and play are synonymous they will be…and I also believe that it doesn’t take a whole lot of time to get there.
My favorite question is “What feels most like play today?”…today play/work feels like what I am doing right now in my office.
