I remember when I used to obsess over finding my passion. The need to do something that I really loved was so strong, I don’t even know why. I had to consciously calm myself down and understand that I had to be patient and let my passion find me. But while waiting, I did a few things…
But wait a minute! Before I continue, let me ask, what does the word “passion” mean to you? Perhaps we should take a look at that before we continue. Hold on while I consult google…
According to my google search, Passion is a “strong and barely controllable emotion”
So from this definition, I would say that when you are passionate about something, you get excited at the thought of that thing, sometimes your heart may even skip a bit, and you get super happy whenever you get the chance to learn/get new stuff relating to what you are passionate about and whenever you meet people that are passionate about the same thing as you, you suddenly feel like you’ve found your long lost brother/sister or something…okay maybe it’s not that serious, but you get what i’m trying to say.
But that’s just my point of view. What would YOU say it means to be passionate about something? Please let me know by dropping a comment below.
So back to the few things I did.
Because I couldn’t just sit there and do nothing while waiting for my passion to come knocking, I decided to make some moves. You should also try this exercise if you want to figure out what your passion is.

- I wrote down all the things I was good at or skilled in
