Day 88, March 29
"I couldn't dream of working on something that didn't make my gut rumble and my heart want to explode." -- Kate Winslet. What powerful words. Kate Winslet, who lives in a galaxy far from my own, shares my feelings about excitement in our work. Without that excitement, that passion, that drive, work becomes such that. Work. Drudgery. With excitement, passion, and drive, work is a joy, something to look forward to every day. When I started this blog, I wasn't certain I could continue for the entire year. It is not always easy to write every day, to find the right words and the right spirit in which to express them. Still, I keep going because passion for "The Gratitude Project" fills me. You may question my choice of words of passion. It has different connotations, but I chose it deliberately. When you have passion for a project or an activity, it translates into energy and determination and the ability to continue. So, for today, I am grateful for passion in work.
