    I can't believe I get to do what I enjoy, and get paid for it.

    I can't believe I get to do what I enjoy, and get paid for it.

    Could anyone please rephrase above sentence? Because I can't understand it.

    I love my job so much I can't believe I am actually paid to do it.

    What does "get to do" mean here?

    If you "get to do" something you have the opportunity or permission to do something.

    While my wife is away I get to eat in front of the TV.

    Since my boss gave the OK, I get to go to Florida for a training course later this month.
