I am passionate about things. I am passionately in love with my husband. I'm passionate about nearly everything involving my children. I'm passionate about reading and learning.... I'm passionate about a lot of things, but are those "my passion"?
When I listen to people who have followed their passion to great success, I am inspired and.... a little envious. Mostly because their passions seem clearly defined. What if I never find that thing that lights my fire? What if my fire is unlight-able?
I've listened to many wise people speak and have devoured their every word, determined to find myself in "that place" where everything just fits and feels right. I've been fortunate enough to listen and speak to people like Maxine Clark @chiefexecbear, Chief Executive Bear of Build-a-Bear, Scott Stratten @unmarketing, Stacy Julian @stacyjulian (who is apparently the Tom Cruise of scrap booking!), and so many other people who really seem to have nailed what makes them tick. I want that, I desperately want that. I've spent a lot of time in my life chasing things I thought I wanted. Passions in disguise... or maybe I've just changed.
If you google "find your passion", pages upon pages of "how to find your passion" articles, blog posts, and videos come up. I think I will spend some time playing about in this little garden of all-knowing passion finder peoples. I'll be sure to share what I find, but in the meantime, if any of you have insight into where my passion might be hiding, let me know!
