Until very recently, I vexed over the belief that I should be excellent at one thing. It seemed everywhere I turned, there was someone passionate and perfect at one interest. I couldn’t figure myself out. One might say I have a general interest in many things, but I couldn’t bear the thought of being generally adept at many things. I wanted to be great at one thing. Thankfully, a few years of maturity have changed my perspective and I embrace every level of interest I possess. The bottomline is, I’m never bored.
Even Olympians have other interests and professions that don’t merit medals. The photo essay What 36 Olympic Athletes Do For A Living (http://www.businessinsider.com; Vivian Giang and Samantha Cortez; Aug. 3, 2012) helps everyone like me, to lighten up. Don’t be so hard on yourself! Embrace all your passions, no matter how quirky or mundane. Not everything puts food on the table, but some things might serve you a delicious measure of pride and fulfillment.
