> > I think the key is that while there is the conventional way of making a living in our (American) society -- everyone competes with each other to get to the best schools and then to the best companies to get into the highest paying careers -- this has nothing to do with each person following their inner calling, and that I have to be brave.
***You totally nailed it right on the wall. Coulnd't have said it better.
Short of someone dumping a few million into my bank account tomorrow (winning lottery? Long-lost wealthy relative mentions me in their will?), I have to make a certain amount of dough but otherwise money does not interest me in the least. However, many of the things money can buy DO interest me (ex. fine dining, travel), and those are realities I must consider.
***Yes, true. I do believe that the key in life is find a way to integrate our dreams into a practical and realistic way of living, so we can follow our dreams, but in ways that coincide with reality, not collide with it.
