When my kids were smaller, they used to love the movie, Robots. It is a very cute story about a robot who wants to be an inventor, and all of the stumbling blocks he encounters. This is a feel good movie with such catch phrases as, "You can shine no matter who you are." I also love, "See a need, fill a need." This morning on my way home from dropping the kids at school, I started thinking about the concept of "work". It is tiring to say the word. It implies that it is hard, and it is something you "have to" do. Now don't get me started on "Have to." You don't have to do anything. You choose to get up, get dressed and go to a place you call "work". Whether you like it or not is entirely another matter.
What if you woke up, got dressed and went to a place that you loved? A place of employment that filled a need in you. A place where you felt peace and accomplishment. What if that was where you worked? So many folks hate their jobs. It is sad to me that someone would spend so much of their day in a place that they hate. It's madness. I surely don't want my kids growing up with this as their reality. Now I imagine at this point you may be thinking that I am crazy, and that you live in the "real world" where people "have to" work. I assure you I live in the same world. I have held jobs that I have disliked greatly. They key word here is "have". I no longer choose to put myself in places that do not feed my soul. I am not in relationships that aren't full of integrity either. Life on this planet is too short to do stuff and be with people who are not in alignment with your Divinity. Truly.
I think what happens a lot in this world is we get ourselves into a situation, whether it be a job or a relationship, and we don't know how to change it or get out. We become comfortable in that situation, even though we may not be happy. Perhaps the thought of changing the situation is more scary to us than just staying. But let me tell you that if you stay in a situation that you consciously know isn't in your highest good, you will suffer. You will suffer emotionally, mentally, spiritually and probably physically as well.
This blog is getting depressing, sorry. I just want you to find your happiness and do more of that. You hear stories all the time about people who woke up in the morning only to begin writing best selling novels, or folks who tinker with stuff only to create a new gadget. In other words, people are living their Divinity all the time. And so can you!! Are you brave enough to try? I am always of the opinion that you will never know unless you try. I try a lot! All the time. One of my Divine gifts is to see a system (any kind) and just know why it isn't working and how to make it work better. This kind of gift isn't always appreciated. No one wants to be told their system isn't working. I am learning as I get wiser, that I can simply observe and not get in there and "fix" everything. I don't always listen to my higher self on this though. Sometimes I just blurt it out. I own this about myself. We all have things to improve upon.
To sum up this rather long blog post, find something you love and do that more often. You never know where that will lead you. If you have no idea what you would want to do for "work", then perhaps you aren't aware of your Divine gifts yet. I can certainly help you with that. Until next time...
