“It’s not about the money we make
It’s about the passions that we ache for
What makes your heart beat faster?”
~ “Time & Confusion” by Anberlin
I love these lines from this song, because that statement is so true. Life is not about our jobs and the money, and what we have and own, but yet, that is what we are taught so often. But look at this world, especially in our economy, those who are the most depressed are those who have built their happiness on their stuff, but those who have built their happiness on their faith, and their passions, and what they enjoy, they are the ones who, while things are hard, they still are happy, and un-worried/stressed. I have been talking with several people recently who are working jobs they HATE because their passions aren’t in it, and I was wondering what would our world look like if everyone moved and worked with their passions? I understand that sometimes you have to work a job that isn’t your passion because your passion doesn’t pay enough for you live off of it, but if you can’t make a living doing your passion, are you making sure that your job is allowing you to pursue your passion? I would challenge you to start living your life with a meaning that is not about the money we make, but one with the passions that we have.
