Working for a living...and loving it.

After spending 14 of the last 16 days off of work, I was THRILLED to go back today! To say I love my job is an understatement...I don't think I could have custom designed a better job for myself. Seriously, besides a baseball game, there is no where I'd rather be.
I found a few quotes on working that inspire me....thought I'd share them with you. I do hope you feel the same way about your "work."

Let us realize that the privilege to work is a gift, that power to work is a blessing, that love of work is success. David O. McKay
Nothing is really work unless you would rather be doing something else. J.M. Barrie
The true way to render ourselves happy is to love our work and find in it our pleasure. Francoise de Motteville
What we really want to do is what we are really meant to do. When we do what we are meant to do, money comes to us, doors open for us, we feel useful, and the work we do feels like play to us. Julia Cameron
The harder I work the more I live. George Bernard Shaw
Find something you love to do and you'll never have to work a day in your life. Harvey MacKay
The highest reward that God gives us for good work is the ability to do better. Elbert Hubbard
Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing. Theodore Roosevelt
and my favorite:
There is work that is work and there is play that is play; there is play that is work and work that is play. And in only one of these lies happiness. Gelett Burgess

Excellent blog...
I may use some of the quotes myself because I'm a true believer and have worked 'X' long years at the same profession and still love coming to work...it's not really work to me...

I so agree with you Julie on all of this. I know how important it is for you to enjoy your work. Montage is so fortunate to have you.
You are one in a million!!!
