Do You Live What You Love?

At the Massachusetts Conference for Women I bought a MantraBand. MantraBands are bracelets etched with an inspirational saying. Mine reads: Live What You Love

The card inside the package explains this mantra in more detail:

Live What You Love

Create a life you love, engage in relationships that you cherish, and do work you are passionate about. Because life is to be enjoyed, not endured. So, follow your dreams, embrace change, and live what you love.

This is my mantra for 2014. For years I lived life based on the “shoulds” and beliefs of others. Maybe you can relate.

This bracelet serves as a reminder to…

  • Create and surround myself with a strong, productive community of like-minded people
  • Engage in personal activities that energize and educate me
  • Pursue professional endeavors that utilize my skills and interests, make a difference and make money
  • Be ok with change, to constantly evolve and grow

This mantra band serves as a gentle reminder to enjoy, not endure, life.

How about you? Do you live what you love? Do you have a different mantra you live by to help you achieve more in work and life?
