My friend Sandy had an inspirational post that made my mind wander.
I have never had the "live to work" kind of a job. My work is fulfilling enough and I will do whatever it takes to complete projects well, don't get me wrong, it is just that I can't think of anything I'd love to do so much that I would sacrifice my "play" time - that I would love work more than anything else. I am a work to live gal - I need balance.
That brings to mind the same sentiment found in asking, "Is it better to have loved and lost or never to have loved at all?" I am grateful with my experiences in love, however that love and the intensity of losing the love were about equal. If I had never loved at all, I'd never know what I was missing - which is good and bad, I suppose.
