This is my all time favorite quote. If you aren’t passionate about what you’re doing, you need to be doing something else. I read one poll which claimed that 70% of all people are unhappy in their jobs…probably because they are not passionate about what they’re doing. I know this because I’ve been there.
After obtaining two degrees and working three different careers (and starting several others) in my lifetime, I never found the happiness I was looking for. And here’s why…I am not a paralegal. I am not a cardiac sonographer. I am not a real estate agent. Or a copywriter. Or a nurse…
I AM A WRITER!
I’ve known this my whole life but lived under the false notion that I had to think “within the box.” I had to do what society said was “normal”. I had to cage myself in corporations, and foundations. Chain myself to desks and machines. Slave away working for “the man.” But people, I’m here to tell you…
SOME BIRDS ARE NOT MEANT TO BE CAGED!
I am PASSIONATE about crafting tales, about weaving worlds, about plotting death, destruction, love, hope, and betrayal. I am PASSIONATE about crafting characters who live on long after the last chapter. I am PASSIONATE about providing an escape for my readers, a place that can be revisited often. And I am PASSIONATE about WORDS.
I AM A WRITER!
And now that I know this, my soul can be elevated to do the great things it was meant to do.
I hope you all are living your passions and that all your dreams are coming true. If not, I hope you find a way to get there soon. Life is too short to waste one second on unhappiness.
