It’s OK not to be Passionate about Your Day Job
This is an interesting article from the Huffington Post by Adele Barlow. I’ve quoted a short section here:
“…our day jobs were never meant to be the singular, primary source of meaning in our lives. Where one finds meaning is a deeply personal and unique matrix. While a job can strengthen self-esteem or provide a sense of belonging to an industry or field, it was never meant to replace endorphins, the loyalty of close friends, intimacy, laughing until your stomach cramps, or the feeling of gazing into a starry night sky.
Perhaps we are meant to have hobbies and passions that never translate into full-time jobs (at least not straight away). We have multiple selves within us. Some are lucky enough to reconcile the playful self and the working self into one role – others have a job in order to pay the rent and their true fulfilment comes from family, friends, and passions outside of their day job. To place too much pressure on our job to provide us with fulfilment that it was never meant to provide can overshadow the opportunity to find meaning in a range of activities and relationships”.
