Hello English Muse readers! Karen from A Simple Cup of Tea once again. This week I’ll be talking about something simple that can make a big difference.

You know how your parents/grandparents/extended family talk about choosing a profession that you love? They probably also mean a profession they can agree with. Something stable. Something dependable. In certain cases that’s exactly what you want to do, in other cases not exactly. Of course you want a job that’ll make you happy.

What I want to talk about today is not as big as that. It helps – immensely – if you’re doing something you love. But work is not the only way to go and do something you love.


At the moment work is for me just that. Work. But even though I might not love my job – let’s be clear though, I really like my job – it doesn’t mean I’m never doing anything I love.

I try to do something I love every single day.

From reading a couple of chapters in a book I enjoy to listening to my latest musical obsession (Sigur Ròs – absolutely brilliant and highly recommended) I try to find small ways to fill my days with things I thoroughly enjoy. And who knows, those small things you do might just lead to the bigger things.

Have a wonderful new week!

    I was just reading Grimm’s Fairy Tales this morning–I just discovered it was free in iBook, and now whenever I have a few free moments, when I first wake up or when I’m on the campus shuttle, I know I have a few moments of something I love. It’s lovely! Thanks for the good reminder.

    I don’t believe in coincidences like that. They performed in Antwerp last week but unfortunately I couldn’t get tickets. I’m happy that you’ll be able to go though. My bestie did get a ticket and she LOVED it. Enjoy!

    That’s so cool. You’re more than welcome and thanks for sharing 🙂

    This is my actual drama; you’ll see, I’m finishing school next year and I’m nuts about what I love, what is profitable or what can bring me good incomes and which of them would make me and my loved ones proud (they say they’ll be proud anyways and I know, but they are so important to me that I want to reach some of those objectives too). So, well, though it’s not life or death is good to know that I may still enjoy things I love and not necessary be related with work or studies. Thanks for the advice 🙂
