Now, make no mistake, work ethic is important. Doing good quality work is vital. But work should not be the defining thing in our lives. We are meant to be so much more than our work and what we do. We are beings so beautifully creative, diverse, and talented; that just to be regulated and remembered for our work seems to fall short in the grand scheme of things.

I would argue that work is different than purpose. Work is something you do to provide for your basic needs and/or the basic needs of others. Purpose is what you are passionate about and how you want to live out that passion. The greatest thing one can do is merge these two realities together. That makes work less of a drudgery and more of a pleasure. But how do we find the epicenter of these two realities?

Sometimes life will spring forth something new, something exciting, something that makes our heart flutter with joy bursting forth.

These are positive moments that originate due to factors such as hard work, determination, a pinch of luck and a big dose of divine intervention (if you believe in such, I personally do).

Opportunity is a moment when we decide whether to pursue something new or to keep doing what we are doing. All opportunities do not need to be pursued but all opportunities should be considered.
