I’ve been thinking about dreams a bit this weekend – dream life, dream jobs (and literal dreams – but that’s another topic). I sometimes feel annoyed when I hear people speak about their jobs as if its a torture they did not choose for themselves. Then I catch myself and try and imagine what circumstances they’re in – how many bills they need to pay and mouths to feed.
Still, I wonder what makes us get so attached to misery. By choice.
If there was no need for money – if all your bills and financial responsibilities were suddenly taken care of for you – what would you choose as your dream job? Maybe you have a list of dream jobs, which are not even jobs but the lifestyle you’d follow if you could choose it. What would that look like?
Why are you not actively pursuing it? Why the huge gap between the dream and life? Is it really just financial obligations?
