Embracing Differences and Maximizing Strengths

By Beth Adams | Aug 14, 2017 11:01:13 AM

My husband and I have been married for over 38 years. Not all 13,870+ days have been blissful. (Wow, that sounds like a reeeaaaally long time, huh?)

Love Your Job?

We’ve all heard the love-your-job quotes, and if you Google that, 10,500,000 results pop up with pages and pages of images of inspirational messages. The one from Confucius is probably the original (at least the oldest): “Choose a job you LOVE, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” There’s also one that I particularly like: “Do what you love, you’ll be better at it.”
