Do you have a job that you do well and earns you a livelihood, but is not compatible with (or suited to) your natural talents?
You often read about actors and music stars who say that they are “fortunate to be able to earn a living doing what they love and what they were born to do,” but what about the rest of us? Most of us are born with natural talents and love doing certain things, but we end up with careers and jobs that are not “in line” with our natural inclinations. For example, I love to write and I’m an excellent writer, but I have a job that is TOTALLY unrelated to writing. I like my job because it gives me a good livelihood, and I’ve been doing it for years, but it just doesn’t fit my real, natural born talents. The “puzzle is near-whole, acceptable, and recognizable, but the pieces don’t exactly fit in perfectly”, if you know what I mean. Is this the same with you? How do you feel about it?
