I was having a conversation with myself the other day, (Come on, I know you have those too!) and I was asking myself why I didn’t become a doctor or a lawyer or professional athlete or pursue some other career that paid well.
It was one of those rare, low moments when you wonder “what am I doing?”
It’s good to ask these kinds of questions every so often, because it gives you pause to consider your priorities and to re-evaluate your purpose. After a awkward moment I finally came to my conclusion: “I’m doing what I love.”
Its true, I love what I do. And as I assess my surroundings, I am reminded that I am living the “new American dream.”
I get to work at my home shop,
with my family close by,
I live in a very beautiful place,
and I get the opportunity to create beautiful things,
and to share my passion with others.
Oh, and did I forget to mention my two cool shop dogs?
Sometime we forget to count our blessings.
