Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
This is literally so inspirational to me right now.
I needed this really badly right now.
Money will not follow you to heaven. Your happiness will.
I’m sorry, but this is a crock of shit. Everyone wants to spend their life doing what they love. But how exactly are you buying the yarn to knit with? Are you gonna promise to pay the shop back when you’ve sold some stuff? How are you paying for the bed you sleep in, the internet you use on the laptop you have to buy? Where are you getting the funds for the food you eat, and the cat food for your cat?
I’m currently 4 days late on my rent and nearly 200 quid short. The only way I’ve been able to feed my cat is by taking what I can from the animal shelter I (voluntarily) work for. I myself have 3 packets of noodles until Friday.
You can preach ‘do what you love and you’ll never have to work’ all you like. But the bottom line is if you’re not making money, and you’re not planning on relying on mommy and daddy to fund you for the rest of their lives, then you’re not going to be doing what you like, when you like.
