Both mon Mari and I have had our moments of “what are we doing” and “what really is our passion” this year. It’s hard to be completely content when there is that niggling feeling that we are just NOT doing what we are meant to be.
It’s hard when people don’t know their passions. But it’s another when you KNOW your passions but can’t think of a way to connect them to meaningful work that still allows you to make a living in this world.
I really really respect people who have “gone after” their passions at great cost and sacrifice and have seen that brave act turn into something fruitful. (Michael Schechter of Better Mess comes to mind, Leo Babauta of Zen Habits, as does the lady behind the Spanx product line.)
This is something we can both work on in the year to come.
