I love this. I think a lot of people get stuck in the rut of just doing as a means to an end and what a dull and miserable life it must be to not feel passion in every day existence and the things we do.

Sometimes it’s not about money, okay, well all the time it shouldn’t be about money. It is possible to have a job that contributes to the community, or even the world and I wish we all could do that. Imagine what the world would be like. I’ve chosen feeling good about the work I do when I go to sleep each night over materialism.

It’s admirable you feel this strong about what you do. Just make sure you give to yourself when needed as not to experience burnout. I would be sad to see you lose such passion and determination.
