Weekly Question: How can you take pride in your life’s work…?

Weekly Intention:  Accepting

Accept yourself…


“Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it.”  – Gautama Buddha

This week’s question is “How… can you take pride in your life’s work, today?”

So, let’s start by defining ‘life’s work…’

/līfs wərk/

1. The work that is important to you.
2. The work that is special to you.

Let’s continue by defining ‘take pride…’

take pride
phrasal verb

1. To feel good about something.

Ex: She feels good about her life’s work. She takes pride in it.
Ex: She enjoyed making a difference. She took pride in it.

It’s very simple.

How can you take pride in your “life’s work,” today? 

  • Distinguish your life’s work, today. 
    What is special to you?
  • Take action! Make a Choice!
  • Feel good about it. Find a way!

Ask yourself, “How can I take pride in my life’s work, today?”
Then live from the question and see what unfolds…

What is your life’s work?

For some people, the work they do for a paycheck is not their “life’s work,” but it is responsible and it is usually connected to their life’s work. For others, the work they do for a paycheck is their life’s work, at least partially and for others, still… the work they do outside “conventional” work is their “life’s work.” For instance, a person might consider a creative project, a philanthropic project, a relationship, a family, or a community…their life’s work, in any given moment. As such, a person can take pride in their life’s work, by taking action around these things, daily and feeling good. 

It’s a moment to moment, thing.

Your “life’s work” can change daily. It can ebb and flow, as long as it’s “inside” a deep and genuine commitment. How do you know it’s your life’s work? Ask yourself, “is it special to me?” If so, take action!

Weekly Notes

Whether you’re feeding a family, feeding yourself, eating healthy, meditating, quitting smoking, exercising, cleaning your room, or taking a shower…it’s work. Take pride in it. Feel good about it.

The Yoga Book is also perfect for teacher trainings and yoga workshops! Every page has an inspirational quote, space for the date, style of yoga, and instructor’s name. It also has a glossary of classic yogas. Enjoy!

“The idea for The Yoga Book came to me in a yoga class! I saw it clearly in my mind and I needed somewhere to write it down. Also, I had recently met with an Indian medical doctor, who had said “Different styles of yoga effect people differently, so it is important to know which ‘style of yoga’ is right for you.” So, I decided to create a book, where people could journal about their experiences in a yoga class, write about the different postures – how they felt, get inspired, and write about their insights… Sometimes I would come to class with a problem, any problem, and leave with a solution! And when I did, I’d write it down somewhere, so I decided to create The Yoga Book.”

  1. Kathy, another interesting blog! After I read it I felt overwhelmed! So much to think about! I guess I came away feeling how important it is to cultivate your own attitudes, feelings and goals and pursue them taking with you what fits your needs and realizing how they impact your life and the responsibility you have towards yourself and those you come in contact with. Dad says ditto. We especially liked your conclusion ‘’find some fun!”
