Welllllll, I’m ultimately writing this to express my feelings of what I’ve been experiencing since I quit my job, have been looking for a new one, as well as, an epiphany I’ve had through this entire process.
I’m usually the type of person that if I have a goal to meet or a particular job to do, I’m going to do it to the best of my ability. But, while I was working my last job, I realized how disconnected my mind and heart were. I really just DIDN’T care. I’ve not ever really had that feeling. So it was a big deal to feel that, but that leads me to the question…. should you do something even when you know your heart isn’t totally in it, or maybe it’s a little bit in it, but you’re unsure? Should we just do it because it seems like we are supposed to?
My answer is, I DON’T KNOW. How do you decide that? With a job for instance, sometimes we settle for what we aren’t crazy about just because we have to support ourselves and our families, but does that mean you stop looking for what your heart will be totally invested in? OR, do you keep the mediocre job, because your heart is totally invested in your family?
Life is so confusing. So confusing. I think ultimately, where our heart is leading us… we must go. We must take care of that little feeling inside of us that won’t shut up. Or in other words, listen to your “gut” (thanks dad). I think sometimes in life, it is inevitable that we must do things our hearts aren’t fully invested in…. that’s usually called compromise (in relationships)… but we can’t be naive to think that everything we do, we are going to love… but we can’t give up the idea that we can totally make the dream of loving what we do everyday, a reality.
Always work towards what your heart tells you it wants.
