My Two Loves are Constantly Vying for my Energy

I love to sing and drum and I love to play beach volleyball but don’t have the time or energy to do both each day.

  • I also need a couple days off from doing anything so I really can only do each one once or twice a week.

I have to work at the heating and cooling corporation too so I can’t just play all the time, unless I can make money doing each of my passions, which is possible if I work on it. I do like to work at the HVAC company because it allows me to use parts of my brain that I can’t get to with music or volleyball, like interacting with customers answering technical questions about heat pumps and smart thermostats. Music taps into a more spiritual side of me where thinking ceases and the heart takes over. I like going into this part of me because it gives my mind a rest and brings me joy. I also like to read HVAC industry magazines and articles to keep abreast of the latest HVAC technology so that I feel capable of helping people when at work. I think my long term goal though would be to play music in clubs with my bandmate and travel around the country to play in other cities. I think this is possible but if we do it in the summer we need to be sure we have air conditioning in our caravan so we are comfortable when on the road. I think I will rent a nice big air conditioned RV for the tour.
