I haven’t written any straight from the heart blog posts in a while but I’m finding more and more desires to do so. Today, I tried to record a video about this very topic but couldn’t find any satisfaction with the results. And that’s just fine — I’ve decided to write instead. And it’s quite appropriate that I’m having a change of heart with the topic at hand.
Your passions are your life forces. The things that captivate you the most… those are the things that you should be exploring and learning more about. Fulfilling the passions that drive you creates satisfaction in your life. Don’t expect anyone to find your meaning for you. And don’t take their judgement of what your find within yourself. This is especially important when you’re trying something in a social environment that doesn’t consider your passions a norm.
You must always be your own cheerleader. Drive your motivation by finding small tasks that you can accomplish. Because every accomplishment is an accomplishment nonetheless and this feeds your confidence. Reward yourself even if that means a break. But be consistent — passion is nothing without practice. Don’t be afraid to look silly trying something new. I’ve learned that anxiety and fear look bigger at a distance and much smaller up close. Don’t be afraid to admit when you’re wrong and don’t be afraid to right wrongdoings.
Accept the transience of life — the fact that everything is ever-changing. Accept that you can change in an instant and just as much over time. Understand that passions change too and life forces can grow broader or narrower. Enjoy the complete & utter uniqueness of your path. 💛
