Karin Sebelin's curator insight, February 15, 10:25 PM

To live content with small means
to seek elegance rather than luxury,
and refinement rather than fashion
to be worthy, not respectable,
and wealthy, not rich
to listen to stars and birds,
babes and sages, with open heart
to study hard,
to think quietly,
act frankly,
talk gently,
await occasions, hurry never
in a word, to let the spiritual
unbidden and unconscious
grow up through the common
- this is my symphony.


~ William Ellery Channing

Five Reasons to Ignore the Advice to Do What You Love

Five Reasons to Ignore the Advice to Do What You Love | Wisdom | Scoop.it

"Admit it. You live in a society that reveres the perspectives of Joseph Campbell and Steve Jobs.  You’ve been told that, if you do what you love, the money will follow.

 

You’ve been told that, if you find your bliss, world-changing success will magically come.  You’ve been told that, if you’re not changing the world in dramatic ways, it’s because you’re too afraid to find your passion and follow it. There are five reasons to end your personal guilt trip."
