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?

    I believe we have many areas in which we are called, and often we are rewarded in ways that don’t show in our bank account. Those rewards add up in our well- being account.
