What Is Your Passion?
Your passions are what shape you. I’ve always believed that everyone has a passion or a purpose. I don’t buy it that people just don’t have a strong passion in life. I think if you feel as though you don’t have that strong driving force that gives you the reason the be up before the sun then you just haven’t found it yet.
That’s fine, don’t get me wrong some people take a long time to find that passion. Someone may work 30 years doing things they hate then the moment they have a kid everything seems to click and they instantly feel this new sense of purpose in their life. Now every waking minute is spent devoted to that child and raising it to be the absolute best. Congratulations to that person they’ve found their passion.
A passion or purpose doesn’t and shouldn’t always be work related, in fact I believe it should be what gives you the absolute most satisfaction and makes you feel whole at the end of the day. Say you hate your job but you bust your ass at it to support the family and at the end of the day you squeeze in a quick 9 holes of golf so you come home feeling refreshed and fulfilled. That’s a passion that keeps you feeling sane. Your passion and your purpose are the things that you look forward to doing, the things that you work for, and the things that you love talking about and sharing with the world. Those are the things that make you feel whole.
I feel incredibly lucky and absolutely blessed to be in a situation where I can make a living and career off of my passion. Creating art is what I live to do, it is what I wake up early to begin and stay up late to finish because I never get sick of it. Understanding that I am one of the lucky few who finds true and pure enjoyment out of what I do is not something I take lightly and in fact I feel almost more pressure in my art because I have to not squander the situation I’ve been blessed with.
What I do is my life and I wouldn’t change a thing. My family understands this and they support it because they know the sheer joy that it gives me.
