For some of us, doing what we love seems impractical, too idealistic. And in some circumstances, that might be so. How do we discern how to properly do what we love?
As a freshman, I agonized over figuring out what my major should be. After a couple of English classes, I knew that I wanted to major in Literature, but I had heard too many people say Humanities majors could expect to flip burgers for the rest of their lives. I prayed and agonized until finally I decided that I would regret not majoring in English. It came down to deciding if I wanted to let fear dictate my decisions for the rest of my life or live the kind of life I wanted.
