I don't know what to do with my life. I love horses and they are my passion, and I know that I am good at this. But it is a toss up between doing what I love and making money to support to do what I love. I've been told so many opinions on this matter of conflict. Do you think it is more important to be happy at your job, or make money to support what makes you happy? I am in college and this is making major choosing so hard for me... Please give me some feed back!!!!

I totally agree with you Taylor, I went through the very same thing and realized yes we still need to make money to survive, but once you love horses and they are your life they always will be no matter what else happens in your life, funny how life come full circle back to were we started.

I worked at a job for 31 years that I did not love. If that wasn't enough, I owned a boarding stable too! The boarding stable supported my horses, however it also took time away from what I loved. When I lost my job a few years ago, I started to think back about how many times I sat at the desk and wished for exactly what I had right in front of me. I was able to build up my business, and believe me, I love getting up in the morning knowing that my first task is to throw hay!!!!! YIPPPEEE!!! I cannot believe I thought I needed anything more than what I have. Sure it is hard work, but I am so happy and content with my life, myself, and every day I thank God that I am able to continue doing what I love. Now that I am older, if I had it to do all over again, I would have choosen the horses, not a job with a corporation that is going to dump you anyway! Find a way to make your dream work for you!!

It would be so much easier if someone else could give us answers to difficult choses in life. I have a career I love and it does help support my love of my horses. And my love of horses helped give me strength to keep in the career I also needed to support my children as they were growing up. But I had little time to actually ride most of the time. I am looking forward to retirement and hopefully more time to spend with my horses. What ever choses you make in life, if they are made with love, they will be the right chose.
