Yes! I have followed this advice since I was a teenager and read "Do What You Love, the Money will Follow." Still waiting for the money, but I will continue to do what I love!

Peace and Laughter! Happy New Year!

Great image! This is definitely the kind of resolution inspiration our family needs. Love your blog btw. We're 4 months into our homeschooling journey and I've gained much from this site :)

Yes, when you do what you love, you feel fulfilled.

I think I want to agree. But I also have this strange nagging feeling that I need to somehow keep my kids in balance. I mean, my older boy has been into building things with LaQ http://www.laq.co.jp/en/ non-stop for well over a month. It is amazing what instructions he can follow and what variations and discoveries he comes up with. Still, oddly enough I am worried now because he doesn't want to write or draw... or take the recycling out... Anything other than LaQ he would say in retrospect that it wasn't all that interesting... I think I am not sure what to trust. My worries or how certain he is about his interest. Do I encourage the building venture to go further where he would like, or a different directions or try to tie it back to something else he was into before...

two things:

1, when you discover something really riveting, you are going to be deep into it for awhile. maybe give it time and see if his obsession peaks and then comes back to something approaching normal.

2, if he's that into it, dig into it yourself and look for possibilities to enhance his interest and help him connect it with other things.

Thanks Lori,
Writing that comment of mine seemed enough to get myself over the strange worry. After that like you said, I started to see all of the new possibilities with joy, rather than with anxiety for the sense of responsibility for being "right" about how I direct his attention. I think he is so much like myself and I also got a bit jealous for being able to indulge himself in his interest. I decided to do more of the same.
