Passions? March 5, 2014

Posted by JP in Stupidity, Uncategorized, Venting.

I’ve been hearing a lot about passions lately. Lots of advice from successful people, career counselors, etc.:

Find your passion in life and do it if you want to be happy. If you hate your job, follow your passions. passion passion passion….

What do you do with your life if you don’t know what your passionate about? I mean really?  I do a job and do it fairly well, but I’m not passionate about it. I like to garden and do fairly well at it, but halfway through the season I grow tired of watering, weeding, harvesting, etc. and want nothing more to do with it.  I used to write poetry and was relatively good at it, but haven’t been able to write a thing in years and have had no desire to try either.  I like to write here, share parts of my mind, but find it often times difficult to even think of something to say…

I would absolutely love to find something in this life that I enjoy above all things, something that I am passionate about, if only to give me an idea of what ‘passion’ really is, what it really means, and maybe something to do with my remaining years that will cause me to wake up in the morning with great expectations instead of  resignation of another day of the same ol’ thing.

“Find your Passion”, is the easy answer to feeling relevant and successful in this life. You’ve hit on the much tougher question, “how do you find your passion?”
Try this, ask yourself “what do you think about when you’re on vacation?” In other words, what do you think about and like to think about when you don’t have to think about something particular. As you put notes down, divide them into 2 categories, Physical and Spiritual. This may help give you a clue as to where your passions lay.
