Success and Happiness

"The thing I remember best about successful people I've met all through the years is their obvious delight in what they're doing . . . and it seems to have very little to do with worldly success. They just love what they're doing, and they love it in front of others." [Fred Rogers]

Isn't that the truth? In every area of my life, when I do it well, when I flourish and have a lot of growth, and when I am happiest -- it's because I'm doing something I love.

Very simple concept and something to remember. Find what it is you love doing -- and do it.

Great quote. My little brother loved Mr. Rogers so much he wrote him a letter, and he wrote back. It was one of the highlights of his childhood!

you always find the best quotes! right now i love what i do-being with my kiddos and blogging of course:) once they are all grown and gone(which already upsets me just thinking about that!) and i start a career of some sort, i have no idea what i want to do yet. i've got to find something i love and do it. its just a matter of figuring that part out! hmmmmm....
