I was in your position a little over a year ago. I had my first job out of school in sales and was making some really great $$, but was completely miserable. I ended up quiting and it was the most liberating day of my life. I got a job that paid about half (I've received raises since) but love my job. Sure, there are good and bad days, but it's easy to appreciate the good and realize the bad really aren't that bad because of the experience I had.
Think about it this way . . . sure a job you're passionate about may not pay as much; however, down the road you most likely will surpass the money you would have been making. Being passionate and loving your job is what motivates people to really be successfull.
