Make Room for your Passion or Die Trying
Do you take advantage of your time and manage to do something every day that has something to do with your passion? We all know it and the feeling can be very sad when it suddenly dawns on you that you are not doing what you actually wanted to do. We have all been in the situation where we are in a place we do not really want to be. It is as if there is a tendency for us to forget ourselves and put others before us.
This blog post is going to be about you having to think about yourself and spend time on your passion. Food? Sports? Gaming? It does not matter what your passion is. There are many ways in which one can feel stuck. It could be that work has taken over your whole day, your family is starting to take over all your free time, or you are just so nice that you spend your free time helping friends with their wishes and dreams.
Although work, family and friends are important, we must remember that there is something even more important than them, namely ourselves. If you hide yourself away, you will not get the best out of yourself. This may well lead to a version of yourself without zest for life and glow. It is necessary that you function in your daily life and it happens if you find time for yourself and spend your time on activities that make you genuinely happy.
As a person, you will appear even happier and cozier to be in company with. It may well be that it will often cause you to say no to friends and that you insist on leaving the office exactly when you are off. But if it means you can do things that inspire you, this is what you need to do. Afterwards, you will meet up with friends, family and at work as a much more positive person.
It may be that you have forgotten your passion
Have you forgotten a passion? Then you have to find it again, or find some brand new ones. When you find a passion, just take time for it or them, even if it means you have to start writing it down in the calendar. Having appointments with others and with oneself helps to cherish one’s passion. If your passion is team sports, then join a club where people expect you to show up.
Personally, I have always loved writing, and there was a time when I did not feel like writing at all, the settings i wrote in was either work or school. Now I try to sit down for at least an hour every day and write about a topic that interests me. It has helped me a lot. When I get my thoughts down on a piece of paper, it gives me peace. I’ve also gotten a lot better at writing now that I keep it straight.
If you have not spent time on a passion for many years, do not expect yourself to be as good at it as then, but expect that you will quickly get back on track if you are persistent and working to get better day for day.
