@pattyjpics asked: “How do we figure out what our passion is?”
I really wish i had the ultimate answer…. but, yeah, I don’t. I’m a creative right-sided brain kind of person, and it’s so frustrating when people say “Just follow your passion” yeah, sounds great, just as soon as I figure wtf it is…..
Lets start with some positivity. Just like a lot of things in life, if you think its hard to find your passion, or thinking its never going to happen then you are going to stay in that negative mindset and be closed to possibilities and opportunities. You’ll inadvertently miss all the little signs life gives you because you’ve closed off your self awareness. Switch your thoughts and tell yourself that you CAN do what you love! Are any of the people you’re around following their passion? No? Then its time to expand your circle. Associate yourself with people that are inspired and love what they do.Try taking a look into your past. What where some big moments where you where happy doing something. It may be something you looked past because your self awareness was broken. You might be like me and love music, fashion, fitness, traveling, and hiking, but theres comes a point to where I ask myself “How can I put all of this together to be profitable and not just a hobby?(BIG difference)” For some people a passion is just fun, and turning it into work changes it from a “love to do” to a “have to do.” This has defiantly happened to me. If you’re alert to who might be in need of your new emerging passion, now you have an aim at a clearer conversation on how, where, and when your passion can serve them. As I seek my passion I always find parts of myself that always wanna fight each other. Don’t let those dumb ass voices win, because you’ll start listening to them, letting doubt in, and that awesome new passion that was gonna be great is now out of your grasp again.
Reassure yourself that you’ve got this, and that you’re worth it, because you are. You’re a human being, in a playground of freedom and imagination, with an entire world to discover it in. TAKE THE LEAP! Be serious about it. Be committed to your happiness and freedom. If you stay with the status quo, you might as well be one of those fucking people that sits behind their desk all day hating life, just to go home and sit on the couch and self loath. Now what damn sense does that make? That ain’t helping no-one! So find your own version of BRAVE. The path of passion is where you do things that scare you juuust enough, without leaving you in a constant state of fear. Think of it as expanding your comfort zone, rather than leaving it. Your soul knows what you need, listen to it.
