Love What You Doo Doo

Just another day at the office

Just another day at the office

Tonight, on a very special edition of Sunday Regurgitation (self-reblog) we go all the way back to 2009 when this blog was in its infancy. That means diapers. And, once upon a time, I wrote about another kind of especially nefarious shit known as “you gotta love what you do.”

I thought it was brilliant. I thought it was prophetic. I think it contained words.

Fast-forward to today and a thought-provoking piece I found on Slate.com entitled, “In the Name of Love.” Among other things, it makes this bold claim:

Elites embrace the “do what you love” mantra. But it devalues work and hurts workers.

–Miya Tokumitsu

That sound you just heard was my heart leaping in my chest. Over four years later and someone is preaching to my choir. Yessss!

I love it when the rest of the world catches up.

Today’s offering features my original post and the recently found bit of goodness. Sorry, I’m fresh out of palette cleansers.

Enjoy!
