Do You LOVE What You DO?

If you met a total stranger, could they tell you love what you do? Life is too short to be unhappy. Find a way to celebrate the positives of your position and minimize the negatives. If you are beset by worries and troubles, take greater notice of the little things that are good about your job.

A kindergartner stood with his hands on his hips as he prepared to leave the library after his first time checking out a book. He looked me squarely in the eye and emphatically said, "I’ll be seeing YOU again soon." He went home and told his dad that we actually had lots of cool books so his dad had "better practice up reading."

Little things, little ones. Those are what I love about my job. I do have the best job in school. Let me hear you say it.
