While at work or near a computer or even just at home doing the dishes we are usually listening to the Christian Radio Station  K Love.
During their broadcasts they often have people share inspiring stories. Yesterday in between songs a gentleman from the Dave Ramsey staff (which you can find  here) was sharing his story about finding a job he loved. He talked about how so often people are stuck in a job or situation that they don't really want to be in. He said that "Dreaming is an act of recovery." Sit back and let that soak in a little. "Dreaming is an act of Recovery".......
Think about what you loved doing as a kid. Did you like reading or dancing or cooking or making things with your hands? What made you stop loving that or doing that? Did someone tell you that you couldn't? Sadly a lot of times are families hold us back from doing things, even though they mean well. For example, the Dave Ramsey gentleman said he knew a girl that used to love to dance and wanted to pursue this for a living. When a parent got wind of this idea they told her that dancing wasn't a real job and there was no future in this. Heartbreaking, but this happens all the time. The parent wasn't trying to crush her dream, just setting her up for what was reality in their eyes.
He now writes for the Dave Ramsey team and absolutely loves his job. Then I think of my girl Gussy who quit her day job and sews for a living and is tickled pink about it, everyday.

It doesn't just have to be about your job, maybe you have a great job and love the people you work with, but you are looking for a hobby or something to bring joy into your life. Dig deep and remember what it is you love to do. Make it happen. Recovery those things that you once loved.
If you aren't doing something you truly love, everyday will lack meaning.
"For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance to do." Ephesians 2:10
God wants our hearts to be happy and he wants to fill our desires. If you have thought of opening up a small business, go for it! Taking that new Zumba class at the gym- you got it! Trying a new recipe. Joining a bible study with a group from church. Just do it! (Thanks Nike!)
Don't wait for the right moment or the ideal situation, just go for it. You can, God will help you with whatever it is. He has planned this for you from the start.

Have a great day!
