Passion is not just about doing something. Yes, the result of exploring your passion is by taking action. But more so, it’s about a feeling. A feeling that runs through your body. Your mind processes thoughts and insights about what you are deeply committed to exploring – creating passion.
As we grow older and wiser, our passions may change. We adapt our passions to our life experiences. What we have strong beliefs about. What has impacted us so much, that it has led us into a direction that we never imagined.
But on the other hand, as we get older, and as life changes the course of where we intended to go, we can easily lose passion. The fire has been put out. Maybe even forgotten.
Think of a time in your life when you felt carefree. Maybe as a child with limitless dreams of adventure. Or as a young adult, when you took on the world and your ambitions were sky-high.
When we stop to think, there are so many moments in our lives that were fueled by passion.
Passion for a cause, something that you desired to be, and enthusiastic enjoyment of an idea. Even passion towards another person.
There is a freedom that comes with letting your imagination fire up ideas. We let go of inhibitions and barriers. We allow ourselves to think beyond our capabilities, and we bravely dare to extend who we are, and what we want to discover.
Fired up. Engaged with life around us. Open to looking for those clues that call us. Call us to ask ourselves: “How can I make this happen?” and off we go to learn and submerge ourselves into that feeling. The idea.
