I like to watch Nature on PBS. There are so many dedicated people who have a passion for doing good and helping the world out. In one program I watched different people help out orphaned animals. Not the typical, cutesy animals that usually get all the attention either. A sloth, a bat, and a kangaroo were all saved because three different people in three different locations worked to save these animals.
My first thought was, where were these careers during career day at school? I had no idea this was an option.
My second thought was, when have I ever felt passionate about anything like this? I don’t think I ever have. My living is eked out by me spending 40 hours a week doing data entry. Data entry is not known as a passionate field. It’s more a “gee, I kind of like to eat and since I live in Wyoming I kinda need a roof over my head so I guess I need some money” kind of job. If I don’t show up to work though, someone else will fill my spot. If the people in this program don’t show up to work, animals will die.
Have I settled into playing it safe instead of fueling a passion? Yes. See the reason in quotes above.
How does one sign up for a passion and is there an age limit to do so?
What’s your passion?
