I got these questions from Danielle’s blog Underland to Wonderland, where I came across a post in which she talked about the website Thought Questions and their 365 thought-provoking questions to ask yourself. My friends Katrin, Celeste and Jasmine have also been answering these questions, so be sure to go check out their blogs too!
Day 78: Is it more important to do what you love or to love what you are doing? I think that’s a tricky one. Certainly it’s important to do what you love, but you can’t always do so (for example, I do have to trade in binge-reading to go to work!), so perhaps learning to love what you’re doing is more important, since it reflects an attitude adjustment.
On the other hand, I would hate to trick myself into thinking I love something that’s sub-par and therefore “settle for less” instead of pushing ahead for bigger and better things. I think you need to balance seeing the bright spots in less-than-optimal situations with the ambition to move on.
Or maybe I’m overthinking the prompt today.
