This world is immense. We all know that, just stick your head out the car window and watch the trees or stare at the stars in the sky.
Just as there are more stars than we can count, sometimes the same could be said for the limitless directions we can take our lives.
Some of us can’t find that ‘one special love’, that gift we’re meant to cultivate and share with the world. We have multiple interests, multiple passions, and we can see our lives take any direction in the world.
How are we to choose what direction to take? Especially since for some of us, our passions come and go, sometimes much faster than we’d like!
I could be a contortionist, a translator, sculptor, doll maker, illustrator, animator, blogger, vlogger, traveler, photographer, jewelry designer, novel author, screenwriter, director, producer, director of photography, set designer, or the guy that brings coffee to everyone on set. The list goes on.
I can see all of these possibilities. I’m sure some of you guys have your own list, too. How are we to choose?
We must prioritize our time just to get our laundry done, so how are we to prioritize our passions? Do we really have to choose just one?
Honestly, I’m not sure. My landlord will probably tell me I need a career, and I’m sure my mother would agree. What do you think? How do you choose, if you do?
Much Peace and Keep Roamin’
