Pursuing Your Passion.

Today, I encouraged someone on one of the forums tom pursue her passion for writing. It has taken me may years to believe that I could make an impact writing. Now I'm working on a chapbook of poems.  

I always told my son to find someone that he really loves then pursue it as a life work. He loves video games and wants to design them. How many people are really doing something that they love? Everything isn't about money, prestige or power. It is about making an impact on others around you. I have been writing since I was sixteen. I have read my work before audiences. If my work impacts one person, I'm happy. 

Pursue something that you really love. I am a radio show host on the internet and a poet. Nearing retirement I am at the point of doing activities that I love. This is a message I share with people, especially the young. Chinese philosopher Confucius stated: Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. 

This is so true.

Great post! I think so many people get caught pursuing a paycheck instead of their passion.

You're right, Luke. That's why I believe that many people are unsatisfied with their lives.

Thank you for your comment.
