I read that somewhere… that title up there. The entire sentence actually reads “passions are what define our lives, not professions”. I feel very strongly about this. I also use my passions to guide my life and I’m not ashamed of that at all.
What is hard for me is that I still need to live in reality, ya know? So I can’t just galavant around doing whatever I love and only what I love. Why not right? Because of money. I need money to do things. Everyone does! So I have to be somewhat practical and have a job. I always try to find a way to make money doing something that I enjoy, even if it isn’t necessarily an outright passion. I can become passionate about anything really. I already know that about myself.
I am a passionate person. It is my blood type or something because I just find myself feeling so passionate about anything that I come across if I let myself think about it or engage with it for long enough. It is such a blessing definitely. But sometimes it is hard. And sometimes it hurts.
Sometimes, when I realize that I have lost the passion/fire for something, I am not able to move on as easily as I want to. This is what hurts me because I feel trapped and stuck. I spend a lot of energy trying to convince myself that what I’m doing is the right thing and a lot of time trying to reinvent the wheel so that I feel like I can take a new perspective on it.
It doesn’t work really. I know in my gut when it’s time to make a change. So that is where I find myself at the moment. In the interim. Aka stuck. I know what I need to do though, so maybe I’m not as stuck as I feel.
PASSION IS WHAT DEFINES
OURLIVES MY LIFE. I hope that there are other people out there who feel and do the same. I really do. If you feel that way, I would love to talk to you. If you live that way, you might find a bit of comfort in my little corner of cyberspace. Welcome.
