What is my purpose in life? Am I fulfilling it? Do I do any thing that is truly meaningful?
I must say, I am still looking for the answer and I’m not sure I have found it yet.
There are parts of my business that I found immensely rewarding and satisfying on a very personal level. It motivates and inspires me to do more.
However, unfortunately, those same parts are also the parts that do not bring in the most income. The parts of my business that generate income seem rather mundane, boring and monotonous.
Same stuff, different day.
Is it possible to bring meaning to every thing that we do? Is it even advisable to do that? Should the things that make us money to live (and by live, I certainly don’t mean extravagantly) also serve a purpose in our lives? Or should it just be the means to a financial end?
These are the types of questions I have been struggling with in the past few weeks. When I focus on the parts of my job that I love, I feel like I’m not even working. My juices start flowing and I feel like I am in a very happy place.
I continually put off those other tasks that do not produce the same effect. But that also means, I am putting off a significant portion of my income.
Grass is Always Greener?
It is easy to say that the grass is always greener on the other side. Then when you get to that side, all you want to do is go back to where you came from in the beginning. How do we get beyond wanting what we don’t have?
I absolutely despised having to be dressed in a business suit and heels every day when I worked in the corporate world. It was a major relief to me to be able to dress however I please without having a strict dress code in order to work.
When shopping with a friend over the weekend, she was picking out suits and heels for work. I felt jealous. I still to this moment cannot tell you why I felt that way. sites like omegle I really do not want to have to dress up again but the feeling was there nonetheless.
So what do you believe? Do you think every thing that you do can serve a purpose or do you have to separate your life into monetary activities and those activities that truly fulfill you?
