Now what???

Look what graced my inbox this afternoon.

All of this-all of this thinking and planning and hoping and dreaming can really be mine with 3 cents worth of ink in the form of my signature. Are you kidding?

I could throw up and giggle (at the same time) at the thought of all the work that needs to be done. Fun work, work that might be crap at times, but work that is meaningful. Exhausting and rewarding work--is this what I've been searching for??

Time will tell but if you never try, you'll never know.

My "pickle jar full of buttons" friend forwarded me an excerpt from a Daily Devotional of a Purpose Driven Life:

We've all heard people say, "I took a job I hate in order to make a lot of money, so someday I can quit and do what I love to do." That's a big mistake. Don't waste your life in a job that doesn't express your heart.

The job I do for money will still see me everyday. It's nowhere near anything that allows me to express my heart but we need to eat and I'm not ready to fully let my heart lead.

But now, the job I do for love, gets to ride shotgun instead of in the trunk.
