Meaning in the Mediocre

Just Monday I was challenging everyone to seize the day, and its only Thursday and i'm already talking about the mediocre. 
Because, well that's life. I love my job, but I am not excited to get up and go everyday... because well sometimes work is boring, and I would much rather stay at home and watch Netflix, or go to the gym, or maybe do some laundry (so exciting I know). The daily grind gets to all of us I suppose... 

It's not that we don't enjoy what we do, I think it is really just the monotony sometimes. However I read a quote the other day that really inspired me (BTW, I love quotes). 

"The maid who sweeps her kitchen is doing the will of God just as much as the monk who prays -- not because she may sing a Christian hymn as she sweeps but because God loves clean floors. The Christian shoemaker does his Christian duty not by putting little crosses on the shoes, but by making good shoes, because God is interested in good craftsmanship." | Martin Luther


I know that I constantly forget that I am supposed to do everything as if I am doing to the Lord... why? Because God genuinely cares about you and your work. He cares about that report you turned in on time, that student that you helped to finally get it, those phone calls you answer, the customers you serve. 

Whatever it is that you do, decide today not to get caught up in 9-5 of life. Decide that your work is important, and that you should do as if you were doing it for the Lord. I imagine if we truly do this, our days won't seem quite so monotonous. 

Whatever you do, do it enthusiastically, as something done for the Lord and not for men. 
-Colossians 3:23

What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
