I remember there’s a field I was starting to get really interested in late last year, and this year I got this opportunity to write something for the field. It was a non paying role, and when I was told, I almost immediately declined because there was no payment attached to it.
Note; this is a field I was telling God that I would love to be involved in.
As I was typing, it hit me that money had such deep roots in me. The holy spirit was talking to me about this money thing. Now, money is amazing, I need it, you do, we all do (I want credit alerts dears ❤️), but if you chase this money thing so much so that it’s the only thing that makes sense, it will blur your eyes and your life. Money cannot be the only thing that matters to you, and to me. Yes, we should definitely make money from our talents, and doing the things that we love, but we must also understand that if every decision we make is solely based on it, we’ll loose our minds to it. It’s so easy to become enslaved to money. You don’t just do anything anymore for the sheer joy of it, or the value that comes with it. If money isn’t involved, then you’re nowhere to be found. I think it’s a trap that we’re being presented with in today’s world. In a world of “turn all your hobbies to side hustles”, it’s like we’ve forgotten how to just do something because we like it, not because of the money attached to it. I definitely feel that your passion and talents should put food on your table, but be able to step back from the line and ask yourself; does money control my every step, or do I control money?
Today, tomorrow, or next week, add value or do something that just makes you happy that doesn’t have money attached to it. Refuse to be enslaved to money. And rest, because all your hobbies and talents must not become side hustles. This thing called money is good, but don’t obsess over it, it will choke you, and wring you out high and dry.
P.S I might still come back and edit this later, add some other things. This is just how I feel now about this.
How are you doing?💛
