When you were growing up… What was your dream job? I was 12 when I knew what my dream job was. Twenty years later I’m still living that dream. If you find yourself in a job situation that doesn’t bring you joy, I would encourage you to seek out your dream job. Life is too short to be doing something that makes you miserable.

Dan Miller has been on Dave Ramsey’s show several times and I really like what he has to say about chasing a job that you are passionate about.

This quote really caused me to step back and think of the miracles in my life. Sometimes I focus on the things I don’t have, instead of what God has already given me. So I decided to make a list of the miracles in my life.
