Now that I'm down to two subjects - Romantic and Victorian Literature and Ghosts and the Gothic, I feel a little less stressed but almost just as busy. I'm amazed at these lecturers and tutors who are seemingly able to devote their whole lives to their one true passion. How does one do that? At each and every lecture, I'm reminded of my love for literature but my world seems to be constantly filled with white noise - all the other stuff going on constantly in the background - the kids, the chores, the relationships...I would love nothing more than to one day lecture or tute or write but how do I find the time to do that?
How do you devote your life to your one true passion without losing sight of everything else?
