Do not think that because you love to do something that you must do it all of the time, that it must be the complete focus for your life. Do not think that because you love to do something that it will necessarily be the primary source of income for you as you make your way in the world.
There are those for whom this is true and there are those for whom it is not. But yours is not to judge if one way to live is better than another. Yours is simply to live, to live each day in the fullest way possible, embracing the joys as they come, learning to face the challenges with calm and composure, digging deep for courage and finding it in a place of deep self-love and acceptance.
Yours is to live this life, the one that was given to you and that you have created, this glorious co-creation of a life, just as it is, day to day unfolding in storms, in fog, and in the bright sunshine of faith and joy. However your life is, this is the life you are to deal with, not the fantasies of what might have been.
The dream of what is yet to come can be a guiding light, but the most important thing is this moment, right now, and finding the joy and peace that are here for you right now, feeling the love that surrounds you, clearing away the doubts and disappointments and seeing instead the treasures that lie strewn at your feet, ignored as you gazed upward pursuing a star, following a dream and wishing things were other than they are.
The daisies are blooming by the roadside. The roses are unfurling and sending forth their perfume. The promise of love and life is here and now, unfolding around you.
And here, as this life is, there is much to love. That activity that makes your heart sing, do it now. That music of your soul, express it now. Take time, find time, create time, to open yourself up to what brings you joy, instead of allowing it to be a bitterness and a disappointment. Open fully to joy in the moment that is yours. Step deeply into the moment that blossoms as it blossoms. Shine in all your heart with who you are and what is yours, as you are. Sing out with your song and be glad.
Here is little prayer for today
I am gratitude and grace, full of a deep joy in the bounty that is mine. I take deep pleasure in my talents and letting my soul sing out in joy. I am deeply blessed to have the talents that are mine and I create the time in my life to pursue them to their fullest.
I love my life. I love myself. I am deeply grateful for all that I have and am. I am.
