Just trying to change the world, one blogpost at a time.

I will express my passion.

"I like Maths because it lies within everything but I LOVE to write because of the potential impact of my words."

Passion. It should be present in your life in all you do. In your work, in your relationships, in your choices. You might hate your job or despise the subjects you're studying and if there is no driving force behind you, you probably won't do as well as you could. However, even if you hate your circumstance, if you are passionate about the reason you in it, that passion will carry you through!

What do you love to do?

It's unfortunate that not everyone can afford to live off their passions, that is just the reality of the situation. But to live without your passion at all isn't a choice you need to make. Say you love the game of football for example but you are a terrible player or you've suffered an injury that has made it difficult to play. Whilst you might not be able to make millions from playing the game, you could still coach for example and get your fix that way, keeping that part of you alive. Who knows what that could lead into! In some cases it's even better to keep work and passion separate, that way you can enjoy your interests without the stress that comes with work. However if it's possible to combine the two and get the best of both worlds, that's the route I'd encourage you to take.

Perhaps you're passionate about a specific topic or cause. Sure you might not be able to create the results you want all on your own, but you can definitely contribute. In the fight for gender equality in the work place for example, by simply being a woman at work apologetically, you are part of the progress being made. Nowadays there are a ton of groups that you can join where you can discuss common interests, work on certain goals and simply just be in the presence of people who like the things you like. 

Keeping your passion alive will in turn aid to keep you alive!

Stay Blessed,
