Thought for the Day
Anita Sharpe on Passionate Work

'One day, I received a phone call from a man halfway around the world who, at 45, had never worked a day in his life. A beneficiary of a sizeable inheritance, he was free of the need to earn his daily bread. Yet he was not a happy man. Indeed, he was deeply troubled by the fact that his life had gone by without his having expressed his own talents or made a difference in the lives of others. Like good health, spiritual growth, and nourishing relationships, meaningful work is one of the abundances of life that we neglect at our own peril.' -- Laurence G. Boldt, The Tao of Abundance

I love this quote Anita and have cribbed it for my own blog. It's midlife when we start having the 'legacy' questions
