Are You Fulfilling Your Core Purpose
There is often such a conflict between three things: The thing that we long to do. The thing will earn us enough money to keep the roof over our heads. Thirdly, the thing which is what we feel we ‘should’ be doing.
I once heard someone describe this gap between what she was doing to earn a wage, and what her heart was asking of her as a “loss, a longing, a grief”, and, I see this grief over and over.

Yes, I know from experience that this decision is akin to stepping out over a precipice.
