What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? I would pursue joy, unfortunately it doesn’t pay very well. I would like to spend the rest of my life caring for people, people I love and people I don’t. Not as a nurse or anything like that, I don’t want it to be a job, I want to give and care for people because it’s in my heart, not because someone is paying me to do it. I think it is a very rare person that is able to really hold onto their passion once it becomes a job.
I’ve heard if you do what you love you will never work a day in your life. Wouldn't that be wonderful, to get up in the morning and think "Today I get to(fill in the blank)!" Instead of, time to make the donuts. Not that there's anything wrong with making donuts, I love donuts, especially glazed chocolate from Dunkin Donuts, and their coffee is pretty amazing too. I actually worked at Dunkin Donuts once, but that's another story.
So lately I've been thinking alot about what I should do, now that I'm all grown up. This is what I've come up with:
I want to:
Wake up and take my coffee outside to watch the sun rise.
Visit the elderly.
Take a walk
Go to a playground and watch children play
Get a massage
Spend time with a friend
Take long bubble baths
I looked at my list and realized that not one of these things will pay the bills. So I must continue toiling away in my cubicle. Another rat in the maze, until, that fateful day, when the rich uncle I didn't know I had, leaves me all of his money.
I got an email yesterday about an inheritance, everyone says it's a scam, I say, it just might be fate.
