I’m thinking about what tagline or caption i can use for this website ZestyOutdoors… then suddenly, it reminded me of a conversation I had with my husband. It’s about hobbies and passion. He knew already and without hesitation he will say his passion is hunting, fishing and eating haha. Seriously eating really good food, that’s why he is a good cook too. If you ask me about my passion, Hmmm, I don’t know, I don’t even know what passion is, though the first thought that came to my mind is that passion is something you love, enjoy and never get sick of doing it.
For my husband, his discovery about his passion may come from objectively paying attention to his pastimes, hobbies and experiences that he created for himself and help him define his passion. We might confuse ourselves that our hobbies is our passion, though hobbies can turn into passions.
I went to google and research the word passion and got confused even more. I guess passion derives from different perspective how you view your life. Let’s just get the very basic definition of the word passion, “It is a strong emotion that gives you powerful feelings and extreme interest towards an object, activity or person.”
If you ask a passionate person “Why do you do what you do?” I bet they will say because it’s my passion”. Because they love and enjoy what their doing, they found fulfillment and happiness in it. If you don’t have what they called passion in life or haven’t cultivated any yet, congratulations! You are not worth less than someone who does.
And if you think that passion is the pursuit of pleasure that only gives you happiness, you have to flip the other side of passion, it also meant suffering. The question of finding your passion is not chasing what you like, but what you are willing to suffer to keep doing it. You don’t mind waking up early in the morning or sleeping late at night and spend hours and hours just to perfect your craft. But you don’t notice it, you Just Do It.
Don’t measure yourself with the standard of other people.Whether you have a specific passion or how you live your passion is not the question. It is how you choose to spend and live your life with purpose. Because at the end of the day, what you do now is just as important and significant like others who found their passion. I believe, Passion for Life comes from Fulfilling God’s Purpose in Our Life.
Live your passion, Live with purpose – It’s a Choice
