Life Choices

“It is very important that you only do what you love to do. You may be poor, you may go hungry, you may lose your car, you may have to move into a shabby place to live, but you will totally live. And at the end of your days you will bless your life because you have done what you came here to do. Otherwise, you will live your life as a prostitute, you will do things only for a reason, to please other people, and you will never have lived. And you will not have a pleasant death.”
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Ouch.

And then there is this from Forbes: New Survey: Majority of Employees Dissatisfied

  1. Ok, see, and I have always believed in this. Except. The implication here is that by loving your work, all you need is that work, and you will be fulfilled. Personally, I would like to be fulfilled by traveling the world. Eating in great restaurants with loved ones. Visiting museums and seeing theatre. All of these things take money. If I have to indulge in a little prostitution at work in order to enjoy the other parts of my life, well, then I guess that’s a choice. (that sounds really awful out of context!). It’s all a trade-off. I am sure I could support myself doing only what I love to do, but I know myself well enough to know that I would be a whole lot of bitter if I had to sacrifice everything else in order to feed that one part of me.
