Your Life As a Labor of Love

LifeWhatever tasks or jobs you do you have a part to play in this world and the best way to serve the world is by being yourself and considering everything you do as a contribution to society and the world at large.

In essence your life is labor of love as you radiate your passion and unique gifts to all you come in contact with and even those you’ve never met. The contribution you make, no matter your task, has value beyond measure!

In the United States, Labor Day is the first Monday in September and marks the symbolic end of summer. It is celebrated with barbeques and families get together as we prepare for fall, NFL and college football but did you know that Labor Day is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers?  It is a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of the country.  Have you ever considered that everything you do at some level affects others and is indeed a contribution to the strength, prosperity and well-being of others?

“There is honor in all work, in all tasks, but take it one step further. Make what you do a labor of love. Then your work will truly touch and change the world in the way you desire. The work you do, whatever your chosen field, will be the work that heals.”~Journey to the Heart Melody Beattie

Whether you are a factory worker, waiter, actor, doctor, lawyer or stay at home Mom or Dad, whatever your task, there is value and you can change and heal the world when you consciously decide to steep all that you do in love. Take this Labor Day (even if you’re not in the US) to honor all that you contribute to the whole.

Your strength gives others permission to be strong. Your prosperity gives others permission to prosper and caring for yourself gives you energy to care for others. Your life as a labor of love contributes to love in the world and it is your choice to share your gifts with the world by simply being yourself and honoring your contribution.

The most valuable gift you give to the world is living a life filled with passion, joy and love. No matter your task, do what you love, love what you do and be your unique self to inspire others to do the same. “The work you do, whatever your chosen field, will be the work that heals”. ~Shine Your Light Debbie

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

On this day of celebration take a few moments to honor what it truly means to be free. There was a cost to the freedoms we now enjoy and with that freedom comes a certain responsibility. To truly be free means you honor and respect what you have. You take responsibility for your words and actions. When you are free you allow others their freedom as well. Freedom does not give you the right to judge or have power over others because even if you disagree, they have the right to freely express who they are.

We are fortunate here in the States. There are other places in the world where tyranny reigns, women are not equal and people are not allowed to have their own religious beliefs. There are places where people do not have freedom of speech, the right to vote and in some cases they are not even allowed their free-will.

Cherish your freedom and take a few moments in gratitude for the freedoms you have. Look inside and see what freedom means to you. Let our freedoms include love and tolerance of others. Take a moment to give thanks to those who fought (and are still fighting) for our freedoms. Take a moment to give thanks and honor those who paid the ultimate price with their lives.

Yes we have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Let us think about how fortunate we really are to have those rights. Then of course….get the party started! How will  you celebrate your freedom today?~Shine Your Light Debbie
