Every so often I start getting discouraged and generally overwhelmed at the current blueprint of my life. Why am I putting in a full day at my day job and then coming home an moonlighting until the wee morning hours? Remind me again why I spend some precious evenings and weekend days at Blogalicious meetings? I can’t help but think it would be so much easier to pack it all up and just be content with a full, but simple, existence. I could garden. Or bake. Or knit. (Ok, fine. So I’ll never really knit.)
And then it happens. I have a great meeting with some awesome folks and they give me fabulous feedback about Blogalicious and how amazing it is and how the experience impacted their lives. Or I attend an event hosted by friends that have totally embraced and pursued their passion and are making serious waves.
And then I remember. I burn the midnight oil and sacrifice down time because it’s what I was meant to do. We’ve created something that’s larger than ourselves and we owe it to our community to deliver. And I love doing it. I know it’s cliche but it’s true – doing what you love doesn’t feel like work.
Knitting on the other hand…
