And that worked for awhile. But then the reality set in... I need those things. The things that I am passionate about help make me who I am. And I found that it's good to be passionate about something that is mine!
I know that some of you may not agree with this, but it's how I feel. And when I gave up my passion for awhile, not only did I miss it, but I missed having something that was my own. And I came to realize that I need that. I need a piece of my life that I own and that's for me.
Yes, I'm into running and fitness. I have tried to hold onto that - for my mental health and my physical health.
But one of my passions is this...
you are reading it... my blogs... and my social media.
For a time, I gave it up. My numbers were (and probably still are) so low that it really didn't seem to justify buying the domain name. And it did seem like a waste of time to try to keep up with them.
But the reality is.... this is mine (well and Google's since they own the domain ha ha) but it's my space... to write.. to share... and it does require work and attention.. but it's a passion of mine. And I enjoy sharing my passion with you.
I encourage you to find your passion. Find something that is yours - that you enjoy. Find something that helps to make you who you are.
I know through blogging and social media, that I've had to get thicker skin. People can be cruel (both strangers and people you love).
I've learned a lot along the way, and I continue to learn. But one thing I know for sure... is that doing something that's for me.. whether it's running, blogging, social media, coloring, or reading... when I follow my passion it not only helps me with being a better person, but it also helps me be a better Mom and Wife.
So, what's your passion?
Writing is one of my passions, and I'm stepping out there on faith to follow my dream. If you like this blog or this post, please take a moment to share it with friends. Thank you for helping me follow my dream.
