What is all this frivolous nonsense about following your passion?

And what of this sappy talk about doing what you love?

What kind of work is that?








Who are you to follow your own path?

And the different drummer?

Please. Spare me.


Who do you think you are?

A free spirit?

Able to do whatever you please?

Wherever and however you like?


Are you honestly going to build a career following your heart?

Is there any money in that?

Or any future?

Or any stability?

Or anything at all of worth?


Come on now.


Get your head out of the clouds.

Plant your feet on the ground.

And forget that deep longing inside of you;

that call of your heart.


What good will it do you to listen to that?


What good will it do anyone?


*Inspired by a conversation with Mari Robeson who proves that doing what you love is serious business.
