“It’s a job.”
“Find a job you like and you add five days to every week.”
— H. Jackson Browne
The title? I don’t think anyone should ever have to say that. Sure, we all have tough times and sometimes in life it seems that the only paths open to us are those that include doing something we don’t enjoy just to put food on the table.
But, really? I think that each one of us is given natural gifts and talents that lead us to professions that allow us to grow, thrive and absolutely love what we do for a living.
The trick sometimes? Taking a leap of faith and stepping forward into what we love — even if it doesn’t promise to pay much, even if it’s scary and against the grain, even when all odds seem to be against us.
In the long run? It totally pays off.
