It is difficult summing up a life in 1 or 2 pages. Thinkers throughout recorded history from Plato to Newton have found it essential to create wonderful, long discussions about what they believe and how they achieved their personal realities. In the following, I am going to tell you what I believe in, how I came to believe in it, and how these beliefs have actually influenced my life.


Do you love what you do for a living? And how to love what you do? Do what you love and love what you do, life is too short to waste it in living a life you don’t enjoy living!

In some cases, things do not go according to plan as well as we find ourselves doing exactly what we HAVE to do instead of what we would LIKE to do. By doing whatever we are doing, as well as offering it our all, it is still important to remain favorable, continue to be kind, as well as remaining capable of taking care of ourselves. It is a long process to get to this point, it does not merely take place over night. I developed this viewpoint out of the experiences life provides, lots of them were sad, painful or disappointing. But I do believe also, that this belongs to life and is essential to becoming a decent genuine person. Instead of always feeling sorry for yourself and quarrel with destiny, try to see the good and benefits of everything. It’s mandatory that you will end up adjusting your priorities and realize how important your own happiness is. So, it’s time to become a bit more selfish and to refuse what makes you unhappy. It is possible, it solely depends on you!    

Enjoying life means loving what you do !
Enjoying life matters ~ even the short coffee break!

It feels so good seeing women making these strides in the right direction of empowerment and happiness!


 My Philosophy 

My philosophy affects every facet of my life. Today as well as every coming day, with my goal of doing exactly what I like in mind, I work at loving what I do and doing what I love to do. In many previous situations in my life, I likewise placed my ideology to function. Because I am caring and overthinking what I do, wherever I am and whoever I am with. I aim to be kind, as well as I offer generously my support, I also treat every person who comes into my life with respect, kindness, consideration and also empathy. And I do expect the same in return, nothing more, yet nothing less. I demand that! Without any hesitation, I point out and make clear how I look at life and I will not change my point of view for anybody. You don’t have to please everybody, not everybody has to like you. If it does not click, just leave it.

However, that is just the start. If we are to be effective in life we need to discover to do what we love. We also need to make an initiative to love what we do. Whether life brings us a convenience food dinner or a banquet, we need to be grateful for the chance to live our ideal.

In a nutshell, my viewpoint comes down to this 

Do just what you love and like and what makes you feel comfortable in your skin. Life is too short to spend it doing anything but just what you love. I know, it is not always easy to live your life that way, it requires a healthy portion of selfhood, some may even call it egoism. You will need time, to become selfish enough. Don’t forget, YOU matter! 

By nurturing whatever we are doing, and also offering it our all no matter of whether it is of our mindful finding or not…   remain favorable, stay kind, don’t let yourself drag down by bitterness and negativity. If we are to be effective in life, we should find out to do what we love, yet that is only the start of a different view on life and the happiness you can find in it!

 

Thanks a lot for reading …

You say it so well! Inspiring and reaffirming!

Joanna

I think that the only way you can advance in life and in your career is to love what you do. If you don’t, then you won’t put the passion and the effort required and you won’t feel the accomplishment of success.

Carola

I totally agree! Life is way too short to waste your time. You can’t control everything. but don’t go on autopilot, or just stay doing things that you don’t like. I think the first step is to be conscious. To even be aware of what you want. As long as you know that, you have something to work for!

Matt

I really needed to be reminded of this. Starting each day with a light and loving heart is so important and sets up the resonance for that moment and the rest of my day. Not always easy to maintain when heavier feelings start to encroach. Being mindful of my feelings helps, and your post brought this back into focus for me . Thank you Claudia.

Rachel Arandilla

I love this positive and enriching post. Some people tend to judge you if you’re doing and spending things you want for yourself–but I think it’s absolutely necessary to be selfish. Enrich yourself with new experiences and new people to grow deeper and better as a person.

Airina April Bernabe Desuyo

I agree. I was once a nurse but I decided to leave that profession and do what I love, which is being a writer. Now, I’ve never been happier

YES! Thank you for this. It is a homerun for sure and I could not agree with these philosophies more. And you are right, it requires a healthy portion of selfhood

Roy Miller

Claudia, you have a wonderful approach to living your life. I agree with you that you should love what you do. I do think the younger people of today are incorporating this into their lives. They seem to be more about things other than money.

Kat

I like the philosophy “Do what you love, love what you do,” although I think it’s more complicated when applied in real life because we have to deal with various responsibilities, one of them involving finances. Still, I think it’s a positive attitude to be grateful with what you have. For instance, that job that you think is not fulfilling. The fact that you have a job is already something to be thankful about. It needs improvement, yes, but in the end it still feeds you and your family. I think this kind of attitude will make people happier in the long run.

Ivan

I couldn’t agree with you more. The best way to enjoy life is to do what you want to do. To live life to the fullest, you have to learn to dance as if nobody is watching. Surround yourself with people who matter, those who are true, who add value to us and those who will criticize us constructively.

Jen

Absolutely right. Life is too short to grunge on things we don’t like doing. It always depends on us, if we choose to live the life we love, we will be satisfied and happy in return. Life is a precious gift that was given to us so might as well use it the right way and the way we want it to be.

Such wisdom here! I tried many careers that weren’t the right fit. They paid the bills, looked pretty on a business card, and garnered respect from others. But every day my soul ached, until one day, I started listening. I stopped letting common sense dictate, and I discovered a life I love and a career that allows me to do what I feel called to do. There’s nothing like it! Great post here. 🙂

alison

I have spent the last little while evaluating if I like what I am doing. I had to make some changes and really see if it was worth my time. I find that to take care of myself I have to do that more often than not. I hate to make others unhappy so I find myself roped into doing things I don’t want to do and I have to take control to know what is important. Great article!

Marge Gavan

I think there should be a balance between doing what you love and doing what is necessary. Life is not that easy for many, sometimes, we are not given that much choice. Many things in life also take time. But I agree that we should be grateful, for whatever it is that we have in life, but if we have a dream, we should find ways to make it happen.

sabine

Such a true story. Love what you do is so important. It’s better to earn less money but having the time of your life at work, then to stay at a shitty job you hate, but being well paid. I love to write blogs and I love to read them too. This is my hobby and hopefully one day I can start making money out of it. But it’s a choice to try to love the work you have and make the best out of it. http://www.sofarsosabine.com

Without love, there is no desire and strong desire leads to passion.Passion leads to great accomplishments so, there is a long journey from love to accomplishment, I hope you agree with me. Klaudia.

ROBERT LEE

I will say this. There are more people who do not like what they are doing but they still have to do it. You are absolutely correct saying love what you do. Focusing on the positive makes it easier and instead of focusing on negativities such as how difficult a job is, for example, it is better to always have the mindset of loving what needs to be done.

Nicole P.

‘loving what needs to be done’ …hmmm…like loving dirty diapers or the long commute here in manila? XD There are times where it can get unbearable and it’s hard to see the light in all of the sad spots in our job and responsibilities, but posts like klaudia’s should be shared as a reminder for all of us that there is always some good in what we do, and there will be more if we start to love it. 😀

Heather

I loved visiting your blog! It is beautiful, serene and relaxing. I agree that everyone should live a life that makes them happy which of course includes loving what they do!

lauren

What a wonderful post..We have the same philosophy. <3

Maria

This is so true. In fact, it is your life and you are the only one whom you “report to” about your choices. You have to be in harmony with yourself and your values, not try to please somebody else. Good attitude, I like it. 🙂

Julie Severson

What a breath of fresh your site and this post is. You have an amazing attitude and are living the life you were meant to live. For me the hardest part about living the life I want to live is deep worries I have for so many that I love who are struggling. Difficult for me to let go.

Jennifer

Yes, connecting to your passion will bring about your best efforts no matter what you do.

heidi

I don’t know how this one slipped by me. Truth is life is long, even more reason for loving what you do. Most of my life I have worked to eat, didn’t see loving it as an option. I will say tho that even if you don’t love your job, find the reasons that make it neccesary. I love eating, I love my family etc. Blogging has given me hope in finding passion in work.

Tania

Love the topic, Claudia. One of the ways we look at this in coaching is to understand what your core values are. If you are living in line with what is most important to you, there is a good change it will bring happiness to your life.

Todd

This was a great post Claudia! This is a lesson that I need to take to heart. I find myself doing a lot of things that I don’t like just because that is what is expected of me and I don’t want to be that selfish of a person. But to truly enjoy life is to do the things that you like and not worry about what others may think. Sometimes it is okay to be a little selfish! Great article!
