Seems to me this depends on if you are independently wealthy, trust funded or actually have to support yourself. It's all well and fine to be hypothetical; for most of us it is not that easy.

edit: this is something I have been struggling a lot with lately. I hate my job. I make decent $. Just feel trapped economically.

OR....Joey's pickles. Dude, make it happen. We'll help. I'll rep them here. Have you read the book, The Barefoot Spirit ? But it would take a ton of energy to start a new product. But, we have our Salsa man that could give marketing input.

Choices....life is all about the how we spend our time and the decisions we make.

Love Ya Dude, lynnie.

johntp, you are the one this thread was created for. I worked for 20 years at a job I didn't love. I did it, and did it well, because my wonderful husband needed (maybe, maybe not now that I look back) me.

No human should work at a job (if possible of course) that they do not like. People were created with certain gifts. To often we are pushed by parents, educators and even spouses to pursue careers that do not fit our skills and talents.

My theory....people abuse substances because they are not happy with what they do. They are not happy with what they do because they were made/created to do and be something else.

I have this book on my shelf, but it seems kind of silly...

I agree wth you 100%, Lynne. Unfortunately, the materialistic attitude of most people forces them to do just that.

10b4me,

When you share a life with someone else and share it with love and intimacy you have to do just that....share. Two dynamic people have to bend and stretch with each others goals to create a life together. Dan and I did. But now I'm alone and I have a new life and the dynamic has changed.

I, the accumulator, am working hard to divest myself of stuff and live. Live simply on the planet and love my family and create beauty.

played piano at the mustang ranch for 20 years,

Sounds like you're qualified to open up a place of your own...until you get some girls, you could run it by hand...
