I have a daily inspirational book that I pick up every now and then and today I read this: "If you can't figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right to your purpose."
I liked that message. Especially for all of you at this time in your lives when you are trying to figure out what you will go on to do once you leave Blanche Ely High School. It is a very hard decision. Now that I am older I think about how such a decision is made at the age of 18!
I chose my career by following my passion! It was the right decision. I spend my life waking up every day doing exactly what I love to do. I have no regrets and if I had to do it all over again, I would teach art.
My decision to teach art was not a financial decision but a decision of the heart. My brothers and sister chose more lucrative careers. One is a doctor, the other in law and my sister a entrepreneur. I was as smart as all of them so when I wanted 'to be an artist' I think they were not impressed. But I followed my passion and it served me well. I have a spectacular opulent life. I am happy. Remember what I tell you every day, the secret or purpose of your life is to be happy.
The art room will be opened at 6 am. I will go to sleep now so we can all have a spectacular day tomorrow. Good night tigers. Ms. B.
