Lately, I’ve been asking myself one question… “How do you know you love doing something ?”

And the answers is simple…you just know.
Feeling when you’re doing what you love doing is amazing.
For me personally, since I make hip hop beats, when I make a good beat, I jump out of my chair, I start dancing to it, I start rapping some silly lyrics…

But the point here is, even though I look silly, and stupid to some people…. I am happy.
And not a lot of people can say that.
Not a lot of people can truly say they are happy with what they do…

I would like to quote James K. Flanagan here :
“Pick your job or profession because you love to do it. Sure, there will be some things hard about it, but a job must be a joy. Beware of taking a job for money aloneā€”it will cripple your soul.”

Boy, am I glad I read this.
And this is quite true…money is…root of all evil.
The best thing here is, I really don’t give a damn if my “profession” brings me money. If it brings me joy, happiness,for that’s all that matters…

So, tell me,are YOU happy with what you’re doing ?

Being creative and making things is what makes me happy. Unfortunately I do have to earn money, since it’s very difficult to live in this world without money, under the current system, anyway.

I’ve always loved making music, when there was no money in it, and when there has been money in it. That’s never changed. So I suppose the easiest answer is yes :)

For me however, the important question is not if I’m happy, but is my life (and music) impacting and empowering the world and lives around me? I desire that more than happiness, and sometimes it means the exact opposite – sacrifice.

About the money quote, just to keep it accurate, it’s “The LOVE of money is the root of all evil”. Money is a necessity. The problem isn’t people having money, but money having people.

I love to do “my” music. I am happy if i made the good composition more than if i sell “commercial” one. Would better if “commercial” and “my” coincide each other, but so turns out very rarely, unfortunately.

Do what you love, not love what you do.

I had a job in the past the I hate, I was working for a company for more than 4 years, it was a hard moment when I decided to leave that job and on my own, although it was an adventurous decision and although I had tough times after leaving that job where I was totally with no income for several months, but now I say it totally worth it and thanks god that I took that decision.
