If money were no object...

In the comments section of my last post about my job being made redundant, one of my lovely friends/readers/supporters "Secret Agent Awesome" asked me this question;

If money were no object, what would you do?

So I thought I'd have a bit of a brainstorm here about the things I love and maybe I'll feel inspired to pursue a path that will lead to a more fulfilled life. Here's hoping anyway!

 I love to be creative and make things. Food, craft, art, blogging, knitting, crochet, music, gardening, growing veggies and cooking with them, browsing pretty things online, reading books, taking photos. I am becoming more and more interested in exploring my impact on the planet and living in a responsible way. I love being around people doing things in a team.

I am a qualified Social Worker and I worked hard for my degree. I feel I should use it but I don't really get a lot of joy from much of the work I have tried in the area. I have done case management and support work and while I enjoyed the roles, they didn't bring me to life. I want to do something that makes me really excited. 

I am really inspired by people who do things that make them happy and seem to make a living out of it. Here's a few examples of folks doing this:  


These women all work really hard at what they do. But never appear to be weighed down with the hard stuff. Call it poise if you like, but I think it's a product of being totally invested in something they love. I want to be like that. But I also need to make enough to support my family. I really wish money were no object but I need to make enough to pay our rent and bills. 

After all is said and done I think... 

If money were no object I would be a maker of nice things...

Ash, I know what I do for a living is not creative in an arty way, but spending time with the elderly, looking at photos of their lives, talking about what they have done in their long lives, sipping tea and helping with everyday needs is one of the best ways I spend my life, and encourage more people to do it! The craft side, can still be done, with these people as well as the times your not with them!
