Stretching Your Whole Being
I know I talk about being curious and exploring. I know I talk about finding your passion and purpose too.
How do you go about it though?
Some people cannot relate or identify to having a passion. It can be stressful, frustrating and downright confusing. It can make you assess your value and worth. Fact: 80% of the population cannot relate or identify a passion; 8 out of 10 people!
“I feel very grateful that I’m able to have my passion be my career, and I believe that everyone can do the same, but I feel many people don’t know exactly what it is they are passionate about. The lucky ones who do already have a head start and can begin to peruse avenues that allow that passion to be crafted into a career. For those still looking for it, I believe it’s a deep calling and it’s OK if you haven’t found it right away because life is a journey and new paths open up to us every day. We just have to create space for those opportunities to come in.” ~Leona Lewis
How do you know what you are passionate about?
Some of us are not smacked down with that lose track of time, heart racing and life expanding passion! That is okay. There are plenty of people looking and trying to figure it out though. I feel it is more about being curious and trying new things!
I also view it as an opportunity for self discovery and the possibilities are endless! You have to nurture and cultivate curiosity for yourself. You have to try and practice and then try and practice some more. You have to have patience and time to practice and learn as well as develop and grow. You have to discover the inner YOU!
Where does one start?
By . . .
- Getting curious.
- Trying new things.
- Exploring and adventuring.
What are you curious about?
“Curiosity is nothing more than the desire to explore.”
Through curiosity and exploring you discover what you like and what you do not like! You will need to get curious and try a lot of things. You will find that connection within yourself that lights you up and makes you happy. You may over time spark a passion within yourself!
Remember humility and humbleness are key! You may learn to laugh at yourself too, especially in trying new things. Play, laugh and have fun. Discover the lighter and simpler side of life through curiosity!
Curiosity is your adventure partner! Trying new things is your new sidekick. Get creative. Go on a journey of self to discover YOU!
