Which Way Is Up

If you haven’t fallen in love with the process… then do you actually love the work? 
It is a question I keep asking myself over and over again here recently. 
I love the process of getting ready for work each day/week even while doing the tasks I don’t like so much. I must be on the right track in my career. 
I love being a dad. We have two kids; one who is 18 months and will jump off of anything! I love her spark, and chuckle even when she scares me! I have another daughter who is three. We get to drive three hours round trip to Hershey each week for her Leukemia treatments. I love to watch her fight and win, and I would give up any amount of sleep to be by her side. My wife is prego with baby number three. I get excited about every appointment and watching my wife lovingly care for both of them. 
Speaking of my wife! Not a day goes by that I don’t love her more! Very simple… she is awesome! Double Check! 

Love the process. Whether you are writing your first book or book fifty: my wife asked me today if I still loved it… The answer is YES! Be proud of what you write! Love the words. No matter if you wrote your first sentence today, or are editing with your publisher to get ready to publish: enjoy every minute! Your artwork is like a kid, you put in a lot of work, and you want to see it do well. I’m on my first book, and I love each victory that has come along with the journey.
