Somebody asked me why I would write about the things I do, and then go and spoil it by talking about skin-care and nutrition stuff. Aren’t I pimping? My answer is simple: No. I write about living fully, and to me that includes loving what we do for a living.
I realize that not everyone gets to work their dream job. There’s lots of people grinding the daily 9-5 or crazier and to be frank, it’s important that they do it or we’d have a breakdown in something somewhere, right? But… there will always be somebody to do some of those jobs. Those “easily-replaced” kind of jobs.
So, just for the sake of being difficult, tell me this: do you know what your passions are? What are you good at, what motivates you, gets you excited, makes you want to share it with others? And to push the point even farther, what if you had the opportunity to make money doing what you’re passionate about? Think it’s too good to be true? Why? I know of virtual assistants, fitness coaches, foodies, business coaches, health & wellness enthusiasts, motivational coaches, crafters, and direct selling consultants who all have made a living for themselves online (as well as in the real world) doing what they love! Why can’t you?
There are plenty of resources out there (like arealchange.com, or marieforleo.com for example) that can help you get moving in the right direction. Lots of free stuff as well as stuff you pay for, but it’s quality info, and all you need to do is take the 1st step by checking out the possibilities.
Here’s another thing: I think that Christians can tend to get a little bogged down with some not-so-accurate theology, believing that being poor is equal to being godly. I’m not saying it’s wrong to not want money or “things”. But I also don’t believe it’s wrong to make and have money… it is the love of money that is the root of all evil, not money itself. Having more than enough means that there is more to give to those that need help, organizations that fight injustice, or provide clean water or care for children. Yeah, I know. I’m messin’ with the acceptable aren’t I? I am completely convinced that God is my Provider. He is the giver of every good and perfect thing. He also gives us dreams, passions, and desires, and when we are tuned into Him and allow Him to love us utterly and completely so that it transforms us, all His goodness begins to spill over. So why do we put a halt to the good things when it has to do with money?
We are each responsible for our thoughts, our actions, and also our beliefs. I believe that God is good, and He desires to do good things through me if I will let Him. I am still ultimately responsible for how I perceive and translate (and hopefully not distort) His goodness.
In a nutshell, I will continue to share the good things He brings my way, and my hope is that if it turns out to be something you can use or take advantage of then… yay!
