Discover Your Passion (even if you think you don’t have one)
Passion is one of those elusive words. It’s talked about so often that it almost feels like rhetoric at times. ‘Find your passion’ we hear from others following theirs. Those words can inspire, but they can also feel overwhelming for those of us not living our passion with little idea where to start.
Notes that most of us have completely disconnected with our passions, to the point that we don't even understand what they mean.
This is the expected product of our culture which replaces childhood passions with adult realities and expectations. The problem lies in the dissatisfaction that this separation creates within us, as we distance ourselves from what provides true happiness. Don't feel alone if you are not sure what you are passionate about. Our culture has crushed it deep inside you.
To return to your passions is relatively easy if you are willing to spend a bit of time working on it. You must at some point journey back to those free days of play and imagination, when you were young and free of responsibilities. Before you were too heavily influenced by culture, friends, and family, you'll discover that you actually did have passions.
- How did you spend your time?
- What did you love to do?
- Who did you enjoy spending time with?
- What are some adult versions of the kind of imagination and play you used?
Some of you might make small life changes that bring back pieces of the joys of childhood, while others will completely transform their lives to correspond with the passions. Either direction you take, your life will have much more joy if you latch on to dreams and passions before they slip away completely.
Even if you don't recall your passions immediately, believe that they are there and continue searching for them. The task is worth it, and may save your life.
