Here Is A Thought On A Thursday

I saw this guy on TV who is a bartender at an awesome bar in New Orleans. He has degrees from Harvard and MIT. But he’s a bartender. He seemed so happy. Am I doing life wrong? I think I might be doing life wrong.

    couldn’t agree with you more. Sometimes I’m so confused what am I doing. Am I doing what I’m passionate about or I just follow the norm the society gives me? >.<

    I really enjoy your blog, by the way :)

    I asked same question few years back and after.finishing my bachelor’s in commerce, I am doing masters in English lit rather than MBA. My parents are still trying to change my mind to do MBA.

    I know quite a few people who got degrees and are doing things that don’t even remotely need the degree they spent all that money to get. There is something wonderful about having a job, even if it’s bartending, that you really love.

    I think you end up doing what you love, or that’s the dream a lot of us have. Being happy doing whatever no matter the pay packet is something to aspire to 😊

    I see this a lot. Just goes to show money really can’t buy happiness. But it can buy a bartending licence, which can be close.

    I was once a bartender and now I am an EMD, I CONSTANTLY think about going back to bar tending, If you like being a social person its like you never actually go to work. You go to hang out with people. It`s an amazing job and great pay if youre good. :}

    i can think of worse gigs – maybe he learned something at those places …..

    My husband has degrees coming out the wazoo. What he does for a living uses just a few of his skills but draws mostly on his interests. What people want to do in life changes. I’m all for keeping what you like and moving forward.

    You pose to yourself an excellent question! Were it me asking myself I’d likely rephrase the question (to eliminate the negative inference) to: How can I align my passion(s) with what I do to earn a living? :)

    Reblogged this on Oh my word! and commented:
    The fun laid back life is more desirable.

    So, curious. What makes you happy? If you imagine a “perfect moment”, say three years from now, what does it look like?
    If that’s not what you’re aiming for, then yes, you might be doing it wrong…:)

    What makes you great is that you saw the story and realized that doing life right means being happy!! My husband and I both have university degrees and are choosing to have “unstable” careers because these jobs are our passion and they make us happy!!! Every day people think we’re throwing our lives away since he’s a bartender and I’m an actor and we have so much more potential apparently. Money does not equal happiness or love. Do what makes you happy. It’s not easy but it’s worth it. Life is too short.

    As long as you’re happy you are not.
    BTW, since I know you love Julie Andrews I think you should watch this if you haven’t heard of this show :D
    I’m laughing a LOT

    I don’t know. .. are you a bartender?

    I’m just assuming that it’s not his job but the state are his priorities and heart.

    But… I’ve never been a bartender so maybe it is the job!! :-)
