Word of the Week: Herzblut

Oct 6, 2017

Have you found the job of your dreams? Are you working with Herzblut every single day?

You don't need to be in the medical field to work with Herzblut. Although Herzblut translates to "heart blood", it has nothing to do with blood in a medical sense.

If, for example, you love cooking more than anything else on this earth, you could say that you put your Herzblut into your cuisine. If you love acting or singing, you may leave your Herzblut on the stage.

If you are passionately engaged in a project at work or school, you may put all of your Herzblut into it.
