When I was a teenager, I always read about rockstars saying it is lucky to get paid to do what you love to do. Not the exact words but something like that. I remembered this words when my wife talked about her cousin who loves to cook. She said that when she stayed on her cousin’s house, she always saw him cooking. She asked him if he ever gets tired, he said no. He said that he loves to cook and cook whatever in the fridge.
While listening to her, I cannot agree more. I can relate to her story because I love my job. Although my dream to be a rockstar didn’t happened, but I’m still blessed to have I job that I love to do.
It’s not just about the pleasure of working at home. I love the internet and everything about it; social media, blogs, internet marketing, and I love designing websites and creating ebooks.
I love my job that I can spend more than 8 hours a day, 6 days a week in front of the computer. My wife always reminds me of this and tells me to get a rest.
I’m not saying that it is the best job in the world. I still prefer to be a rockstar, or a musician to be more appropriate. But I started on a wrong direction and I think it’s kinda too late to start again now. Don’t get me wrong. I’m also a believer of “success chooses no age”. But I already need to generate an income now for my family and starting a new path to be a professional musician will take time. And the service company I subscribed will surely not wait until I get famous and be able to pay them.
And as I had said I also love what I’m doing right now, so, no complains.
I have the same desire for you. Don’t stop looking for the things that you want to do in your life. Or if you had already found it, find a way to make a living from it. If you can’t leave your job for your passion because of salary, then do it as a pastime. Doing what you love is a stress reliever, aside from dogs.
