Being paid…

My mother and partner Mayni likes to say: “There are two types of salary. One is earned in euros [dollars, pesos]. The other is the satisfaction over a work well done.”

I love these words of hers. How true. A great man, Gordon B. Hinckley, spoke about standing a little taller, and striving for excellence in anything you do.

How wonderful to live a life where you have no regrets. Where you know you did your best, every day. You did your work with excellence, being fully present in what you were doing, giving the best of yourself. Striving that what you do (and here it doesn’t matter if it was paid work or not) left the world a little better than you found it, made somebody’s day a little brighter, lifted somebody’s burden, made them smile.

Don’t hide your light! The world needs it.
