I have a simple belief in that we're all here in life to be involved and to make a mark on the world as small or as big as you wish it to be. I adore people with passion for anything they do and I think it's fantastic when people are living to work not working to live (you've heard that saying before I'm sure!). Its an odd saying sure, who would want to live to work? BUT, when it comes down to it, taking the average situation, we spend 5 out of 7 days working and most of our hours there so why would you not be striving to live to work. I think in that scenario as well you seek out roles that you love instead of roles that just get you by.
When it comes to my job, I still have bad days. Gosh I've had some really bad days. But I think going back to loving what you're doing, bad days are just that. You can get through them, and still feel challenged and passionate about what you're working for - don't get me wrong that big glass of red wine at the end of the day is a big help in getting through bad days also.
These snaps are taken from these past sitting weeks - functions in the evening, covering rallys out the front of parliament, crashing a petting zoo & holding a snake - I do work I swear and walking around the hallways to show off the art (parliament has art everywhere)
[ Myself & Colleagues - Jarrod & Amanda, at a work function ]
[ The aforementioned huge artwork - p.s this photo actually cuts half of it off ]
[ A zoo brought some Australian animals along to Parliament to talk about how some animals are at the risk of becoming endangered. I was walking past the event so went along & ended up holding a snake ]
