This quote caught my attention,
“When I work I relax; doing nothing or entertaining visitors makes me tired.”
~ Pablo Picasso
I can relate. The most enjoyable times are when my mind is engaged with inspirational spiritual truths that lift thought higher and higher. Conversations with visitors can certainly allow for this to happen, but it often doesn’t.
The above is also a reminder that labor can be fun and relaxing. It doesn’t have to be drudgery, routine or boring. That’s a choice we make.
True work is a worthy life-purpose fulfilled. It’s an activity that has meaning and purpose. It’s up to us to find that meaning and purpose and live true to it. Christ has led the way.
When motivated by the pursuit of spiritual ideals, work is fun, dynamic, engaging, even thrilling. And it never grows old. I pray that you find the right kind of work that thrills your soul and keeps you happily engaged too.
