I don’t want a job, I want a mission. A job is something you do because you get paid. Personal investment is generally not required, and sometimes not even desired. A job is a place you work AT, a means to an end. A job is something I wouldn’t do if I wasn’t getting paid. I don’t want a job.
I want a mission, a calling, a purpose. A mission is something that I just CAN’T HELP but do. Something that doesn’t even feel like work and that I would pay YOU to let me do it. It is part of who I am, not just something I do. It is synonymous with my identity. With a mission, there is no line between work and play.
I believe I know my mission now. I’ve spent my whole life working jobs, even jobs that should not be considered jobs. But no more. Money is not a concern, I must meet my calling. A wealthy life doing something I hate is not worth it. Better to be poor and complete than rich and hollow.
I have to wait a little while longer to be free of the time clock, but on that day, oh glorious day, I will finally be free.
