The Ripple Effect Of Finding Our Passion
I have been involved with Masonry for close to 20 years now and it wasn’t until I started my own company that I realized just how passionate I was about this trade. It is abundantly clear to me now that what I needed most was the challenge of being on my own; doing things my way; allowing my own creative ideas and insights to flourish, and becoming solely responsible for my own mistakes. In life, I have learned that the only way we are capable of determining just what it is that we are passionate about is by exposing ourselves to a plethora of experiences. Once we sort through all the contrast that those experiences provide, we are readily equipped to understand ourselves, our motivations, and our inspirations. We are able to make determined choices. When we discover what we love to do for a living, it enhances every other aspect of our life. Our entire world changes. Being a stonemason, working with my hands, labouring day after day, bringing my own creative stone and brick designs to life, and continually learning in the process, has been one of the most immensely rewarding experiences of my life. It has taught me about my strengths and weaknesses, things I could stand to improve upon, my limitations, and in the process, displayed just how much I've grown. The history of Stonemasonry, its timeless traditions, embracing the elements and expressing myself creatively through the medium of stone and brick in Victoria, BC where heritage buildings abound... these are just a few of the things that I enjoy about working as a stonemason. When we love what we do, it translates into our work. And you'd be surprised how much of a difference that can make in this world.
