Passion

I’m on staycation this week, and today I spent the day working on a lot of projects I’ve had floating around in my head.  Projects that I’ve been wanting to do for quite some time, things that I enjoy, that I get wrapped up in and lose track of the hours because I love what I’m doing.  I’ve been evaluating my own life a lot lately, asking questions like, what do really enjoy?  What do I want to do?  What’s my passion?  And so I wanted to encourage you with this thought: if you’re struggling in a job you don’t like, a relationship that doesn’t nurture you, or any other situation that drains your energy, take some time, by yourself, and dream.  Let your mind wander to a place where you are happy, content, and fulfilled in what you’re doing.  And then find a way to do it.  Whether its as a hobby, or a side gig, or something that eventually grows into a full time job.  Everybody has to start somewhere.

Don’t ask yourself what the world needs.  Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that.  Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
