Doing What You Love

I saw this gentleman on the strip in Vegas dressed to perform. He was making music out of paint buckets turned upside down. He was in a zone and seemed to LOVE what he was doing. I loved that. People like that live for what they love. I think many times we settle short because of the need for “safety”, which I think is very important, but this gentleman reminded me that when you move too far away from your passion, I believe you lose a piece of yourself. That night, this gentleman was whole.

  1. I think you hit the nail on the head about moving too far away from our dreams. Maybe when we get discouraged because they never work out we just need to find a different sized box to put them in instead of giving up altogether. You’re right. Settling for safety is the death knoll in everything. Even relationships. Great post.

  2. I visited Vegas this year, and one of the things I enjoyed most was watching people take to the streets with their instruments. I’d like to have stopped to listen to all of them, because it came to them so naturally. I have a firm belief that if you’ve got a passion for something, consider the “dangerous” decisions. You have to invest a lot, but if you live for a passion, you’ll be happy. You’ll be free. There’s a reason we are given passions.
