Work Soft

Yes, I have a new philosophy - it only took me about twelve years to figure it out. Work soft is what I am naming it and trust me, you will all want to adopt it as your own.
In my family, if you're not working hard then you are basically wasting your life. The "working hard" approach is not exclusive to my job, it spans across everything I "do" in my life. I hold a belief that if something doesn't take an excruciating amount of energy then it doesn't hold weight.
In other words, it has to hurt in order to have worth.
Let's flip the whole idea around then - what if work could be pleasurable?
What if I do things in my life not because I HAVE to, but because I can or choose to.
My work soft philosophy recently bloomed while I was in Vancouver. I was bustling around the city feeling all stressed out and rushed. I had to stop myself and take a breath. I realized that life is supposed to be fun, it's supposed to be enjoyed. How I live is up to me. Intriguing, eh?
So this is my new challenge; I am changing my approach. Let's see if taking things in stride, enjoying the moment, and not worrying about the future actually does work...
As always, I will keep you posted.
