follow your bliss

by don

I think I tend to want to follow the crowd. So when I was younger the mantra of the day was follow your bliss, do what you love and you will be successful. Some people do find the job they love. Unfortunately I was never one of those that found a job they love. As a young man, supporting my family, being successful in a career was extremely important to me. But as I could not find that bliss job I felt like a failure. But i read one sentence in a book that really helped me. It said, if you cant find a job you love do something after work that you love to do, this will give you fresh energy and carry you through. That is what I did, I love animals and have been donating and volunteering for many years now and it is my true bliss. Helps me cope and feel like that I have accomplished something.
