“Love What You Do”

Posted on: August 29, 2011

Young Egyptian Farida Al Sayed is sharing with us today a new piece of thought. While surfing the net, she came across a quotation she thought it was inspiring and made her reflect on a lot of things. She wrote:

“Sometimes, or most of the times, teenagers tend to hate any task given to them, whether homework or house chores like cleaning up or washing the dishes. I myself hate having to do anything like such, and most of the time I would have to do it by force. It really feels bad to have to do something by force because then you would do it in a wrong way or mess up and get nothing done. I came across a quote that said “Do what you love to love what you do “. At first I thought it was related to what job I’d end up with in the future, or something like that. After thinking deeply about it, I realized that there was something I could do that would help me very much when doing anything, even chores!

I thought that, what if I try to think of something to make me do whatever it is  that I’m doing with love ? Maybe while washing the dishes, I could imagine how happy my mom would be or even how clean the sink would look like once I’m done? Or while cleaning my room, I could think how clean it would be after I’m done, then maybe I can light some candles, sit back and relax !? I’ll be really good to just try to imagine myself mastering a piece of art, and once I’m done, take a step back and admire the work done with love!

I personally like to think how good the thing I’m doing will be after I’m done, and that is what makes my chores bearable!

What would make yours bearable?”

it is true sometimes when u don’t love something ur doing u never get the job done. but if u think of it in a way you do love, u will finish the job in seconds.
