At some time in our lives, we wonder exactly what our passion is and how to find it. This post could also be titled “Not Seeing the Forest for the Trees” because 99.9% of the time, your passion is right there – staring you in the face. You just don’t see it.
Take me, for example. I’ve always been somewhat of an artist. I painted portraits…and dreaded each commission like the black plague. Then I made jewelry. I don’t wear jewelry. Red flag.
But when I was a little girl, my mama taught me to sew. Add to that the fact that I’m incredibly
cheap thrifty and have a burning desire to own purchase create handbags. Bingo.
Passion – staring me right in the face. When you find what you love and you actually walk the talk, you’ve found your passion. I won’t admit to how many bags I actually own. But I will show you part of my collection and exactly how it’s used.
Signs You’ve Found Your True Passion
waking at night, excitedly thinking about an ongoing or new project
waking at night worrying about your project
waking in the morning, anxious to begin
worrying about it makes you sick to your stomach
sketching ideas on any scrap of paper you can find
annoying family members with your ideas – constantly
walking the talk – practicing what you preach, because you believe it – using what you make
people admire you for the fact that you’re passionate about something
signs that you’ve found your true passion.
