On work: do you live what you love?

My answer is simple: no.

I have a good job, a great job even, that affords me a pretty nice life style.  I’m not rolling in money but I can buy things, go out and well, enjoy life.  I am so grateful for my job and that I am able to do these things, and worked very hard to get to where I am.

Disclaimer aside, it’s not my passion. 

I’m not living what I love. 

I dream of a day where I’m living what I love, doing something in fashion, or social media, blogging, styling or helping people get dressed.  These are things I’m passionate about.  These are things that get me excited.

These are not things that would currently pay the bills.

I struggle with the idea of ever leaving the job I’m in.  It’s a job many people would want, kill for even, and like I said, it affords me a lifestyle I like.  Leaving it would be so scary, and if I didn’t make as much money, would I be as happy or comfortable?  I don’t even feel that comfortable, so I can’t imagine making less.  On the other hand, if you’re doing what you are really passtionate about, wouldn’t that be enough?

Sound off:  are you living what you love?
