Quotes to Live By - Do What You Love

Posted by Lauren Eyer

"If you are not doing what you love, you are wasting your time."
-Billy Joel
As I was looking for some inspiration this week about life, and thinking about my WHY, what my goals are, etc.  I stumbled across a quote that singer/songwriter Billy Joel said in a commencement speech.  He said "If you are not doing what you love, you are wasting your time."  It's one of those quotes that you think, of course, wouldn't we all like to be doing what we love all the time?  I like this quote though because it really made me stop and think.  I think about the fact that we only have this one life and even if I'm not able to do what I love ALL the time, I should be more intentional of doing something I love each day.

I understand that dropping everything to chase your passion and dreams isn't a reality for many people; we have responsibilities and we can't be reckless.  But I don't think that's an excuse to not do something small everyday to work closer to that dream if it's in your heart.  And I don't think it's an excuse to do at least 2-3 simple things you love each day.  

Our days go by so quickly, and if you're like me, if you're not careful you reach the end of the day and sometimes feel like you're just going through the motions and not intentionally doing anything you really loved doing.  This week, in my vlog post I challenge everyone to pick 2-3 things that are non-negotiable that they love to do, and will incorporate into every day.  For me, it's walking my dogs and meditating.  It can be anything you love!  Please share what you'll do in the comments so I can see what you love and maybe it will give some other people some new things to try!
