Curated from Pinterest when I was researching the topic of Work vs Passion, the basis of my previous 2 posts “Follow Your Passion”. I always like to share the thought process that goes on behind my posts.
I hope these help you in your own Path. If you happen to be just starting out on your Life career path, I hope that you will wisely choose to do work that you actually care about, rather than work that just pays the bills. The meaning of Life is NOT to work hard, earn money, pay bills then die. It is to be Happy by doing what you’re passionate about, it is about taking care of Mother Earth and all her precious creatures and plants, it is about figuring out what you can contribute to help make the World a better place. And then doing it.
If you’re mid-career, or stuck in a rut, ask yourself what kinds of work would make you feel fulfilled, regardless of whether they pay or not. It could be volunteering at your local charity, homeless shelter, animal refuge, hospital etc. If it makes your heart glad to be there day after day, then your soul is getting nourishment from it. If it feels right in your heart, then it is the right thing to do. This is what following your passion is really about.
When you’re passionate about your job, it doesn’t feel like work. Find that, and your life will be filled with Happiness.
