do what you love

I was watching this video while in awe of how astonishingly beautiful it was. And I was thinking, "Why don't I watch more stuff like this? Why do I waste time on the internet when I could be doing things on the internet that I actually love doing?"

Why do I spend hours scrolling through facebook or reading dumb articles when the internet could be used for so much more?

I could be actually reading someone else's thoughts through their blog. I could be writing down my own thoughts. I could be looking up tutorials on how to freelense. I could be finishing that long-forgotten email. So why does that latest music video or online clothing sale look so appealing?

Is it because it's easier? Because it takes less effort?

I'm not saying we can't ever buy that cute top or watch the top worst xfactor auditions (those are fun, by the way).

I just wanna know why we don't do more of the things we love. You know, the things that leave us satisfied and full in the end, not wanting more.

Maybe we do the things we don't love because it's easier in that moment. Maybe it's because everybody else does it.

Let me say something. Don't ever, ever do something that leaves you empty and feeling worthless in the end just because you feel like you have to do it. Or because everyone else is doing it. Maybe they feel empty and worthless, too.

Find what you love and do it. Yes, there will be times when it's hard and you're tired. Then you'll want to give up. But if you really love doing something, in the end you'll know it'll all be worth it -- because you love it.

So even if it's harder and even if nobody else is doing it, do what makes you come most alive. Do what you love.
