After years of searching for my passion, I've finally found it. I've found what I love to do and it's something I'm good at. There's one problem: it's seasonal.

Is there a way I can pursue work in another field and not lose my love for the work I'm passionate about?

This means that I need to make a lot of money in season and find other work out of season. Just this thought makes me worry that I'll lose interest in the work I'm so passionate about. It makes me wonder how I can make a stable living within the industry I'm passionate about.

How long is the season?

What kind of work is it?

Maybe one year or one year and a half. I'd rather not say the type of work. If I have to explain more than I will.

I agree with Stef. That's plenty of time to work on your project and plan for the future. You might regret not taking this chance while you have it.

The passion job is seasonal, and it's something I'll probably need to do on my own at some point in time.

Eventually, yes! However, I don't have the confidence to go on my own yet. I'm still learning the field.

Then learn the field, on the off season volunteer or study/intern.

Otherwise, I'd say get another seasonal job and rotate between them.
