Quotable - beware happiness killers

There are three happiness killers - doing work you do not love and are not passionate about, surrounding yourself with people who you do not really like (someone who just fills time), and living somewhere that does not let you be you.
Just stop it. Life is far too short.

I like that.
I'm also thinking that 2 out of 3 isn't bad...and that last one depends on where I am.

I'm torn with #1 - there are days I really enjoy the people I get to work with and help in a compelling way. And I love my boss. So I am practicing #2 both at work and home and play. I need the income from my current job in order to have #3. Some day I'll be able to transition #1 to what I really want to do. Overall I'd say I'm pretty lucky and happy. But reminders to look things over are always welcome!
