I had a blog post in mind for today, but just couldn’t resist getting some more sleep.
I don’t know if I’ve talked about this before and it came up a couple of times during the week for me and it is your passion.
Your passion is whatever it is. I don’t know what it is and don’t care. As long as it makes you happy and you are performing it as much as possible. The thing of the matter is that I’ve gotten myself into some crazy situations where I was dedicated and helping other people along with their passions. I helped them do what I did over a 5 years stretch. But as time kept on going and I became more involved I became frustrated: I was doing all of the work for them. I came up with ways to help them figure out what it was that they wanted to do with their lives. Most of the time I didn’t get a response and of any real effort of them trying. Then I came to the realization that I can’t care about their passion more than them. Why should I. Then I stopped and made a rededication to myself in only helping people figure out what they wanted to do with their lives by me living the life that I want to and them getting some kind of inspiration that would last longer than 5 minutes of reading my post.
So, you just have to care and put effort in your life because nobody cares more about your passion than you. Because if they do then you have to re-examine what it is exactly is important to you.
