Every so often, my husband asks, “Are you doing what you love?”
The reason he asks is that my experimental career in music has required us to make significant changes in our lifestyle. My salary has dropped two tax brackets, and my schedule often requires me to work on weekends, when we’d previously spend the most time together. All for the pursuit of happiness.
So, do I love it?
I know I love music — there was never any doubt there. What I don’t know yet is whether I love music as a career. It’s kind of like Oreo cookies. I love Oreos, but how many can I eat before I’m tired of them? Would I still love Oreos if I were required to eat them for survival?
There’s only one way to find out. Nom nom nom.
