Who are you and how do you make your living?


I am an artist, but I don’t make my living from my art.

I am a poet, but I receive nary a droplet.

I am a singer, but singing doesn’t pay my Bills Bills Bills.

I am a spiritual director/retreat leader, but I don’t get paid for the privilege.

I make my living as a Psychotherapist and Marriage & Family Therapist in my own private practice. It is also my calling in life — for which I often use the inspiration, creativity, and present moment awareness tools that I draw from my artist, poet, singer, spiritual self.

So. Is being an artist, poet, singer, spiritual director/retreat leader any less important or significant because I don’t make my living at them?

I don’t think so. What do you think?
