words of encouragement

I tend to write mostly about myself. So I want to turn the tables a bit and focus on you. More importantly on what a good job you're doing. Seriously. This isn't some after school special about "the more you know" the more successful you'll be. But right now, wherever you are, is wonderful. It sure as hell might not feel like it, but trust me, when you look back in another year or so you'll see how much you've learned and how much easier things were now. Keep up the good work. Don't let other's voices, even the one inside your head, tell you to stop pursuing your passion.

Your work is amazing. Let's not judge ourselves amongst ourselves. Take time to reflect on who you are, what makes you unique and then do what comes naturally to you.

Enjoy Your Work

We all have those days when we're not 100% - that was today for me. But what really counts in this life are the relationships we have and those who can lend an ear and an encouraging word. After an uplifting conversation I had with my friend Daniel (really more like a brother) I opened up the Bible to Ecclesiastes. I ran across an old verse I had underlined that really inspired me:

"So I perceived that nothing is better than that a man should rejoice in his own works, for that is his heritage. For who can bring him to see what will happen after him?" - Ecclesiastes 3:22

Regardless of whether you are unhappy at your job, in between jobs, or out of a job, we should all enjoy the work which we can get/have, no matter how small or big the task.
