So true, to be able to find the happiness of play in one's work is a great place to be, a satisfying life indeed.

Hi Andrea,

Your words are so true. It is such an important lesson to learn that a happy life is finding an equal balance between work and play.

PS Your dog is so adorable!

There's always beauty when you find the balance.

I always just want to bury my nose in Sophies neck and listen to her breathe...

Jessica said...

Freckles and her other 3 border collie companions pop they're balls too and play with such excitment and enthusiasm. You capture her puppiness and it just makes me look at Freckles and tell her how much i love her because she is awesome like that too!
Tell Sophie her buddy Freckles would love to play ball with her!

Yea!!! I was looking forward to "lesson three"!! You are absolutely right Sophie and I think this is the biggest ingredient of living a happy life! Thanks for reminding all of us and please continue to have fun in both your work and play:)

Your dog is so cute. I loved your blog!

I'm still loving those Tulip pictures. They just couldn't be more perfect.

More people really need to learn lesson #3. It would really bring them closer to contentment.

Shirley said...

It is so difficult to find employment that brings you happiness, and even when you do find work you enjoy, there are usually people and conditions that are determined to cause grief. I think that being able to enjoy life at work or play is a measure of spiritual maturity.

Playing with my kids is always a great boost to my spirit! It is so important to fit "fun" into our lives somehow. We all need to laugh more these days.

Such a cute picture :)

Indeed. Unless one loves to play, it's doubtful that the work will ever be a pleasure.

Maria said...

love these lessons, such a great idea, looking forward to more
such a beautiful dog

Barry said...

Too true.

And one should not be confused with the other or you might find yourself more deliriously happy than you can stand.

Tori will resort to chewing her frisbee only if we stop throwing it for very long. :) Thanks for your comments on my blog and entering my giveaway!
