We can never predict when we will find our passion in life. It can feel like we spend so long searching for it by walking cloudy eyed through fields of potential options. However, there are a select few people that crawl straight out of the womb knowing what their soul purpose is meant to be. But for the rest of us, it’s not that easy. And it feels like the ones who already know their life plan must be lucky ones, but perhaps not.
We want to know what we should love because that would make educational choices much easier due to us already knowing the direct path and stepping stones we need to walk along to get to our end goal. But I’m here to ask you, doesn’t that take all the fun out of the journey? And maybe the trial and error that comes from the search is just the pure fun of it all.
As someone who had an original plan, I can say that after a while it becomes rather limiting. Although it seems great to think you have the world planned out and your life together at 17, it can also make you naive. Especially when you realise a year or two later that actually, you cornered yourself off too soon and the world is much larger than the claustrophobic, metaphorical wall surrounding the small town you grew up in.
The mystery begins when you don’t have an end goal. However, the excitement begins when you realise what you love and that you love it enough to call it a passion. I would describe a passion as something larger than a hobby but that’s where it begins. So if you’re trying to find where your hearts desire truly lies, first you must look to what you love, and then follow from there.
