What do you love to do?

It feels like I am often asked, "...sooo, what do you do?"
I realize that most of the time it's just a conversation filler like, "...so, how are you?" These are things said by habit when we don't know what to say. But sometimes the "what do you do?" question feels like it is filled with judgements, comparisons, and assumptions.

Can what you do be summed up in a word or even in the length of an elevator ride?

My reply to "what do you do?" is, "I do my best, as much as possible."

Maybe we can start a new trend... be more conscious of our questions. Instead of asking someone, "what do you do?" try asking them, "what do you love to do?" And really listen to their answer. It may surprise you.

I love to read.
I love to create.
I love to dream.
I love to travel.

What do you love to do?
