When you do what you love, you believe in it. You want to do more of it. You feel you are making a difference and you feel happy about doing this work. Sometimes you’ll think about your work and it will bring about change in your life or help to clarify something else that’s important to you.
Very frequently, if you love what you do, you’re going to wake up in the morning and say, “Do I really get paid for doing this?”
A dream job follows your wants instead of your “shoulds.” You’re listening to your intuition and to your heart instead of solely to your rational mind. When you listen to what your intuition says, then you will find that the rest of your life will start to rearrange itself so that you can truly be who you are and enjoy a truly meaningful life.

Here are some WISE WORDS ABOUT CAREER CHOICES from Abraham Hicks.
“A very good career choice would be to gravitate toward those activities and to embrace those desires that harmonize with your core intentions, which are freedom and growth—and joy. Make a ‘career’ of living a happy life rather than trying to find work that will produce enough income that you can do things with your money that will then make you happy. When feeling happy is of paramount importance to you—and what you do ‘for a living’ makes you happy—you have found the best of all combinations.”
