It’s Not Work, It’s My Purpose

Today’s Daily Prompt Asks: If money were out of the equation, would you still work? If yes, why, and how much? If not, what would you do with your free time?

I am an educator, education researcher and a campaigner for Autism Awareness and Acceptance. I am very proud of what I do and I do not consider it work. I may not be the best at what I do, but I am stiving to be better at it all the time. The passion that I have stems from my interactions with the children and their families. A lot of what I already know has been passed on by experienced mentors who themselves are as passionate as I am with their cause. Despite the hard work, countless sleepless nights and the relatively small pay, I would not trade it for anything else. 

If there is a chance for me to stop working for a living, I would do what I am doing voluntarily. That is how passionate I am with what I do. I believe that I am making a difference in people’s lives, albeit in a small capacity. But if we are to change the world for the better, every little effort is needed.

  1. I wouldn’t work. I find just getting through the day with minimal tasks is the right balance for me. It’s when I feel most content and relaxed and in control. Completing routine task eg meal times, dishes ect Having the time to exercise and doing exercise every day. This is enough for me. I’m not rushed , stressed, overwhelmed or anxious. And these routine task fill in my day, with also having time to myself to smell the roses. I believe it’s important to have time to smell the roses. Just do nothing, worry about nothing.

  2. Great title. It just pulled me in. I love your conviction and I concur with you. Work sounds boring and something people have to do without love for it. It is the kind of stuff that makes you live to work and die to go home. Living for a purpose and doing what one feels compelled to do such as a vocation or calling sounds more fulfilling. I get where you are coming from. I volunteer and it is one of the best things I have done with my life. The peace of mind is priceless. It is enriching to do what you love and help others for the sake of it and not for a renumeration. What drove you to pick this topic?
