"What is the one thing that gives you so much...

...fulfillment and joy in life, that you would even pay someone for the opportunity to do it!?"

That was a question posed in a recent church lecture that focused on "Fulfillment In Life".

I really have no answer.


I am an artist. God has given me this incredible gift, but at the moment I find no joy in it.

I don't even get paid for it anymore because I left it to do something else.

Anyway...What is YOUR answer???

I have no answer either; there are so many things that give me fulfillment in life...

No, no... but what do you love to do so much that you would even PAY someone for the oppurtinity to do it!

As in a job, a hobby, an art.

Do you love to sing? Dance? Play pick-up-stix???


You know wha I mean???

Well, I love to teach. And considering how absolutely little teachers are paid, it's almost like I'm paying someone for the opportunity to do it.

Wow Bama. If you substitute husband for wife, and add my kids, you've got my list.
Of course, it won't be the same team .

I just thought of the ONE thing, I would pay someone for the opportunity to do ~ raise my kids.

I'm not one of those "I always wanted to be a Mom" kinda gals either. Corporate American would have been fine with me. However, I had no idea how wonderful, how incredible my children would be. How everyday I would be so blessed to have the opportunity to have them in my life (even if it was a long, rough, pull out your hair kinda day).

I consider them such a gift, I consider myself so privledged to be their Mom that if I had to I would pay someone alot of money for the opportunity to be their Mommy.

I would like to do Bono, and I would pay him for the opportunity too! ooooohhh Ok that was just wrong of me to say! Forgive me!

Seriously though, it would be painting! I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE to paint! I dunno what it is about it but I get this enjoyment and pleasure in painting. It gives me the opportunity to express myself.... my feelings ..emotions... and its a way for me to release stress!! Geez, if someone would give me the opportunity to do paintings for them or the like, I WOULD PAY THEM!!! Too bad that *sniff* with school I don't have enough time to paint! That's my hobby!

Play piano (I've already paid U. of Oklahoma to let me do it )
Spend time with Shelley (my best friend of 10 years - until just recently we hadn't seen each other in 4 years, and paying to see each other was an option many times)

That's about all I can think of right now.

Wow Trash Can, this sounds just like me.
I am an artist as well. I used to love to paint, draw, sculpt, and have won awards, scholarships, and have gotten lots of positive feedback from other artists and people in general on my artwork. Lately, however, I've felt totally uninspired to do anything art related and I don't know why. I know that God has given me this great talent and ability for a purpose and I guess right now I'm just trying to figure out what purpose that is. It's quite depressing

Thanks Cathy

Does it also bring a bit of guilt? It does me. "I am wasting God's gift!"

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!

You know what I love to do, BUT it is pointless!! I love to "experiment" and create strange and complex images in Corel PhotoPaint or Adobe PhotoShop. OzAurora (or is it AuroraOz?) has some wonderful examples of her artwork on some site of hers. Hers are REALLY good. They are "art". Mine is just me... "enjoying".
But!... It doesn't pay the bills, ya know!?

Peace!
