It’s been about two months since transitioning to the gift economic system. If there is one way to test yourself to see if you are indeed spending your time on heartfelt passions, just try to actually do what you do for free.
While I have met some absolutely amazing people doing this work, there is no doubt that after 20 years in healing and helping professions, I am fried. I have listened to all of the “I don’t want to change my lifestyle, just fix me” requests, the excuses, and the drama for too long. I mean, how dare I suggest that you lay off the Mountain Dew or suggest that you have to take some kind of action to make a positive change in your own health? I have cared when I didn’t want to, cared when I really didn’t have it in me to do so, and have mustered trying to fake caring just because I was being paid to care. I’m very much done with all of that nonsense.
