I’ve just come to realize how deep the statement “living with passion” is.
I used to think that living with passion & doing what you love with fulfillment and satisfaction is not something meant to be for everybody and that only few people enjoyed this attribute. I also had the perception that those who lived with passion were artists, philosophers, generally speaking weird people, isolated and never understood by ordinary people like us!
I developed these thoughts gradually since I rarely had the opportunity to see examples of people in my community pursuing their passion, living and becoming it..and I remember calling “Crazy” those who did it!
I started lately to read about the truth behind living the life of your dreams. Naturally the voice inside of me easily accepted these new perspectives. That’s when I knew that living with passion is not a particular right for the elite and that we all have the CHOICE to do so only if we want to.
My job was then to discover what my passions are (I was more familiar with the term “hobbies”). It was a very hard job I must admit! I asked people how do they see me, what are my strengths, I did personality tests, read books yet the picture didn’t get any clearer..
I was just about to give up when it hit me:
I realized that living with passion does not necessarily means that you have to have a supernatural incredible fantastic gift and that only with this gift you will be able to fulfill your passion. I realized that living with passion is simply waking up every day excited to live a new day, spending time doing what you love like playing music, listening to music, reading a good book, meditating, being around your family….etc. Living with passion is opening your heart to life, listening to your inner voice, being grateful and happy from within. Living with passion is allowing yourself to be yourself and enjoying every bit of it.
