HARD WORK

"Work should be in order to live.
We don't live in order to work.
That shift in awareness is necessary."
-- Matthew Fox

What are your beliefs around work? Do you believe it's necessary to work hard to earn a living? No pain, no gain? Do you believe women's work is never done? That play is a waste of time?

While there are merits to the work ethic, over-work takes a serious toll on the quality of our lives. Our ability to contribute to life requires us to have a sense of balance, joy, playfulness, time to stop and smell the flowers.

"Learning to let go of the ways we inadvertently and unconsciously contribute
to our own pain is the key to finding radiant physical and emotional health."
-- Ingrid Bacci


"To do great work a man must be very idle as well as very industrious."
-- Samuel Butler


"The true object of all human life is play."
-- G.K. Chesterton

Working give us a sense of achievement and worth, satisfaction after a job well done.

But it's just as important to savour our free time and surround ourselves with love and happiness with family and friends.

Like everything else we need to keep a balance.
