171. I don't want to toss out what is of interest to me
for the security of having a job. Spending much of our time on a job that doesn't have any connection to us, ie. spark of interest, something w/ purpose, would be a terrible position to be in. It's an essential balance that if missing, can make people miserable. I hope to take both equally important aspects, and find something in the middle. One that is practical and still spiritually satisfying (at least to some degree). I know many people that do what ever they can do, regardless of what they "like" because it's a matter of survival. It's always to be admired in someone that can take the worst of it, and do it anyway because it's right and responsible and imo, that is something right there that should be satisfying, and I'm afraid some people can not see that. There are people in this world that can not find anything positive about what they do, and miss the point that they are doing what is needed for themselves and/or their family, and that is commendable because it's really hard to do. I'm going to try to find a medium, and I hope I make the right decision and I have the luck (which it is sometimes) to have a spiritual connection to what it is I do.
