Passion: a strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement for something or about doing something.
What do you have a strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement about? Are you pursuing your passion? If not, why not?
In the busyness of life, it’s easy to operate on autopilot and not make time to pursue the things that we love, enjoy, and feel passionate about.
Passion comes from within. If you’re not sure what you are passionate about, create time to reflect on areas of interest or things that you enjoyed doing when you were younger. Start doing the things that you have identified to see if they still resonate with you. If you were interested in nature—start spending time in nature. If you were interested in certain causes—volunteer your time. If you enjoyed dancing—start dancing. If you enjoyed writing—start writing. If you enjoyed hiking—start hiking. You don’t have to wait for everything to be perfect to pursue what you love. Once you are clear on your passion, pursue it and see where it leads you.
If you say you are passionate about something that you are not pursuing, explore what is holding you back. Don’t let fear keep you from pursuing what you love. Commit to taking action even if it’s only small steps. Over time, small steps can have a big effect.
Give yourself time and permission to pursue your passion.
