My youngest son and I were in the car the other day when he asked me what job I was looking for now that I was out of nursing. I said that I just really don’t know. He then asked me what would make me happy.
Now that’s a loaded question!
So, I went on to reiterate what his Dad has said to me …
After driving 50 minutes for the past 13 years, he wants me to stay closer to home. He doesn’t want to worry about me during storms, snow & fog. (I can’t argue with that! A closer drive would be awesome. But limits my options greatly!)
He wants me to find a job that I love to do. (Well, so do I!)
But, I still need to be able to pay my car payment, etc. (Duh!)
So, he asked me again. Well what would you love to do? So, I started naming off what I love …
painting my nails
and how I would love to learn wood working.
My son, who is wise beyond his years stated matter of fact … Those are hobbies. You do those in your spare time. Now what job do you want to do?
How do you turn hobbies into a job? I know people do it. But, my work is so / so. Nothing unique. Hmm!?!
