Are you Passionate?

Find your passion and don’t let it escape.

That’s one of the orginial moism quotes that I came up with back in the good old college days at Georgia Tech. Well, but what the heck does it mean? I think that this moism can be separated into two parts.

The first part is about finding your passion. A calling of some sorts. Passion can be applicable to objects, work, hobbies, or even people. Personally, I’m passionate about working with kids. On a bi-weekly basis, I get to spend 2 full hours with a few of the cutest and craziest kindergarten-ers. When I’m with ‘my’ kids, time just seems to disappear. It’s funny, I get more joy out of these 2 hours then a full 40 hours at work. Each session starts off with some goofing off and running around, then comes a short story time, and finally ending with a time for arts and crafts. Kids are great, they’re so free and does whatever the heck they want. I feel like the more we grow, the more we hold ourselves back. We think and worry too damn much. Try to fight it. The other thing (or person in this case) I’m passionate about is my girlfriend. She is an amazing person whom I’ve grew close to and 100% comfortable with. 🙂 Haha, maybe I’ll get some brownie points for sending her this blog post.

The second part is about holding on to your passion. If you’re truly passionate about something, then you would hold on to whatever it might be with your dear life. Think about it, if you’re not passionate about something, why are you doing it? Well, I guess sometimes you get stuck in difficult situations or you simply need to pay your bills. But you can still take steps and move towards whatever it is that you’re passionate about. Don’t know what you’re passionate about? Well, oftentimes I haven’t got a glue. But don’t be afraid or too timid to try new things, you’ll never know whether or not you like it. If you don’t like it, then move on. If you love it, then you’ve found something to hold on to. Don’t let it escape.

Anyway, just want to share some thoughts. Have a great Friday!
