It's so nice to someone grasp for what lights up her soul rather than being held back by fear or societal proclamations of what is a "worthwhile" pursuit. So often we spend too much time trying to do or be what we think is expected that we ignore the callings of our hearts. The truth is that it is okay to not care about power, money, and all of that corporate crap. What is more important is that we find something, somewhere in our lives that we do care about. That might be our work, it might be where we volunteer, it might be what study, it might be our free time, but it must be. So, hooray for those who do what they love. As Paolo Coehlo wrpte in my favorite of his novels (if you've been reading here a while, you know it's The Alchemist), "You'll never be able to escape from your heart. So it's better to listen to what it has to say."
