Mistaken Passion

passionSo… you’ve given your defined passion all you’ve got. You’ve been successful in mastering it and becoming an expert of it. Whether its cooking, speaking, writing, singing, or whatever, you’ve embraced your passion, but yet you are still left feeling a bit incomplete. What’s the problem? Why aren’t you fulfilled. Why isn’t the happiness there?

Maybe your cooking, speaking, writing, or singing passion just wasn’t you expected it to be. It is very possible to misinterpret what our passions are. It’s possible to find out that what we expected to get from our passion, just didn’t do it for us. I remember growing up thinking I wanted to be a singer. I gave it my all; or at least what I felt was my all. My sister that is a professional singer/songwriter/manager may say differently ;-). Every time I walked off a stage or left a recording booth, I didn’t have the same feeling I had after I wrote an article, book, poem, or short story. I spent quite a bit of time putting energy into singing when all along my REAL passion was writing.

Today I just wanted to convey the message of being honest with what makes us happy. I could’ve just said, ‘Singing is my passion” and never put the right amount of energy into what truly makes me happy. I could’ve remained a bit unfulfilled. Now, don’t mistake my point of realizing what your true passion is as a point to encourage you to give up on something that you like doing. I still sing occasionally. Sometimes I am asked to sing at different events and I enjoy doing it, but when I write or speak about my writing, etc., the feeling is incomparable. I just wanted to encourage each reader not to spend too much time chasing a passion that’s more of an enjoyable moment than a true passion.

Until the next posting ~ Continue Living Passionately!

Hi Reader! I am a passionate young woman always aspiring to become better each day. I use the word passionate often, but I do so because I truly believe it defines who I am. I do everything passionately. I love to write. I enjoy singing. I love speaking and teaching. I desire to inspire others through my work and in turn myself. This blog is all about encouraging myself and others to find their true happiness in life through living out their passions. More formally, I am a single mother, writer, producer, businesswoman, thinker, and believer. If I haven't learned much of anything else in the last thirty plus years, its that a person must be happy with self. I know that if you're not happy with yourself, then no one around you has a dying chance in meeting your expectations or positively affecting your life. I hope this blog reaches tons of people desiring to better themselves through what makes them happy the most! That's my purpose. That is my plan.

  1. For me, I could never go looking for my passion. Rather, I discovered my passion and became aware of it through the course of my daily life. You are so right, when you hit that passionate chord, you will know it. Your soul will vibrate with such intensity that you will just instinctively feel the passion pouring out of you. Thank you for your wonderful insights! Have an inspired day 😉

  2. Afternoon Dave, yes its amazing to me how passions work. Your commentary definitely makes me look forward to what I can share next. Your insight is just as rewarding! Thank you!
