Happiness is spending the night doing your dream job.
Last night I redeemed a Groupon voucher at an area floral shop that offers monthly classes. The October class featured how to make an autumn door swag using dried materials with a handful of fresh flowers.
I was in heaven. As soon as I opened the door the smell of happiness overtook me.
As this year rolls along at work, every time I look at the flowers on my desk I think about what I wish I was doing, even as some part-time gig. I realize that to those who stand all day de-thorning roses or getting up to purchase bulk flowers at 5 am that their job is not glamorous. But to me, creating something everyday that that makes someone feel loved and special has to be a perk of the job.
The whole time I was designing my arrangement I kept looking over the table at the buckets and refrigerators packed with flowers thinking about what I would make. I really want to make this dream a reality on some level within the next five years.
