Dear Fellow Bloggers, this idea has been lingering in my mind for a while now. It will be a short post but hopefully will give you some food for thought and maybe you even realize something?
So, what we do for work/professionally is to make a living. Some of us like our jobs and some of us don’t. Most of us just go to work daily, accept that work is something we have to do to put food on the table and meet our basic everyday needs and to pay the bills.
But then, passion, I feel is a whole different thing. For some people the venn-diagram between passion and work intersect. This is very good! I am glad this is happening for you! But, for some, it doesn’t. People spend their entire working careers complaining about their jobs but still going to it daily because they KNOW this is something they NEED to do vs. something that they WANT to do.
I am not here to advocate changing your profession or to follow your heart. Realistically, I would urge people to follow their brain and logic when it comes to careers, profession and making a living. You go to work, exchange your time for money. Simple fact!
BUT.. to explore my thought fully I ask you – What do you do for FREE? What makes you feel alive? What motivates you to keep doing the things that you do without expecting anything in return? Now, pause and think about this for a minute or two. Thought of some things? — Ok, good!
THAT dear readers, is what I would call it your PASSION.
I wrote about my many different passions in this post Multipotentialite – Are you? I find that within the last two months I have been enjoying reading and writing and spending time on this WordPress community so much and I LOVE it! I aspire to be a good writer and keep getting better at it. This is my passion and I love the meaningful blog-versations (yep, made up that word!) I have with my fellow writers. At the same time I am Aware, that this is my Passion and my Career/Profession is different. Fortunate enough that I somewhat like my profession, but wanted to implore people to think about the difference between those two.
So, dear readers, WHAT WOULD YOU DO FOR FREE?
Would love to hear your thoughts & feedback in the comments below.
~~Stay Curious & Have a peaceful day!~~
