What are you passionate about?
You know, I've watched "The Secret," I've read books on how to be successful. They all have a common question: What are you passionate about? I believe where passion meets talent and persistence, you'll have success. But what if your passion is something stupid like playing parlor games or hanging out and talking? My hubby, the brilliant scientist, asks me all the time, what are you passionate about, what makes you the happiest? I wish it was something awesome like my friends who are opening businesses, working a job that saves lives, taking joy in raising a house full of kids and never seeing the bottom of a diaper pail. I came to a realization that I am shallow. I am happiest when I'm organizing spontaneous fun and chilling with people talking about relationships. Pathetic, eh? I'm not sure if that will ever make me successful. I had a lot of fun in college, but that was it. What are you passionate about? What topic gets you talking? What subject never tires you? How did you discover your passion? I want to know!
I'm passionate about children's literature! But then maybe you already know this. I discovered and rediscovered this passion (I won't say MY passion because that implies that it's my only passion). Loved kidlit as a kid, but moved away from it some post high school. Came home one Christmas break and binge-read Narnia books. I wept because I knew I wouldn't have time to do that during the coming semester. Then there was that children's lit class I took, which helped me recognize my passion even more... and my husband who has said, "you really like this, don't you?" and clued me in to my own preferences. Can't wait to see where this passion takes me!ReplyDelete
