Passion and thriving

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style. 
Maya Angelou

I was in the shower yesterday – always, always these things come to me on the shower…or the treadmill – and it hit me. 

They pay me to do what I get to go to work to do. 
They pay me to think. To question. To seek new answers. 
They pay me to read. To share knowledge with others, and to learn from them. 

I. Am. So. Lucky. 

It took me a while – and several detours and wrong turns – but oh, I love what I do. I just love it. 
I basically get paid to be a nerd. Talk about a dream job for me! 

I’ll need to remember this on those super-annoying days when all I want is to be home, in my leggings. 
Or when I’m in the curriculum meeting tomorrow. 🙂 

But most days? It’s so, so much fun.
