When I hear people talk about passions, often they are not sure what they are passionate about or really unsure of what that word means to them.
I recall a few years ago, noticing that I really wasn’t sure what I was passionate about. I felt like I was putting a lot energy into my life, but that I really wasn’t getting the feelings I was seeking. Sound familiar?
So what is a passion? (Besides the kinky kind…wink, wink)
Wikipedia defines passion as an intense emotion, compelling enthusiasm or desire for anything.
How is it that we have fallen away from knowing what gives us that intense emotion, enthusiasm and desire in a way that leads us into great happiness?
I know for myself, I get distracted. I will do anything and everything that keeps me hiding from my true self.
We live in a distracted society these days. Life has become so busy with social media, social activities, family life, and we barely have time to pay attention to what is bringing us happiness. When we have a moment, rarely do we just sit and reflect, we end up checking Facebook, our emails, creating a list for the grocery store, etc, etc. Remember when we use to get lost in a day-dream about what made us super happy!?
If you are curious about what you are passionate about, pay attention to the things that really get your attention or that you find yourself thinking about when you don’t have something to distract you. Put your smart phone down and see what shows up, your passions are waiting to light you up!
Our passions are a means to daily happiness, it’s time to listen, and live them! Tweet this!
What are you doing today that lights you up with passion? Is there more that you could be doing to bring yourself happiness today?
