“In truth, I’m struggling to align my professional work with who I am.”

I love this so much. This is something I’ve been thinking about as my hobby slowly became my work. Now it’s both what I do for work and what I do for pleasure and I wonder if there’s even a difference between the two. I wrote a few thoughts about that here if you’re interested:
love this piece as always!! the quote at the start leads me the question, who ingrained that need to worship something in us? why have humans always been looking for a greater purpose? idk if this is too deep for this post but I’ve thought that that’s a sign of God, because this feeling doesn’t really have an evolutionary purpose. i think it ultimately comes down to filling the void with what we perceive as happiness, whether it be constructed or genuine. really enjoyed your thoughts on this topic!
Great piece. Also reminded me of this classic: http://www.paulgraham.com/work.html.

Time, attention to fill the hearts void l
Man I loved the last quote from Martha Graham - thank you for another great piece Nix!!
