i don’t want a job

yesterday, i decided that what i want is a profession, not just a job.

i don’t want to work just for the money.  i don’t want to do something just because i have no other option or because i am forced to.  i don’t want to go to work and then immediately begin the countdown to close of work hours.  i don’t want to feel like the things i do each day will be forgotten a week, a month, a few years from now.  i don’t want to go home at the end of the day without any sense of accomplishment or pride at what i have done. i don’t want to sleepwalk all my days off.   no, that would mean i have a job.

i want to go to work with a sense of purpose.  i want to do something not because of all the trappings attached to it but because the work itself is inherently gratifying.  yes, there will be days when i will swear at all the frustrations or be really, really tired.  But at the end of those days, I will still be fulfilled knowing that what i am doing is something that i have given my heart too. it is a passion.  it is a vocation.  it is a profession.
