Did your ears perk up? Passion is overrated?
With the countless
Passion is a powerful force that makes things happen. It brings fulfilment, happiness, and makes dreams come alive.
We’ve all heard the phrases:
“Just do what you are passionate about?”
“Follow your passion!”
Your passion will guide you to your calling… won’t it?
Well everything we’ve believed and have been told about passion may not be exactly true.
I believed for a long time I was following my passion. A 13 year span in commercial real estate. I made great money, had a flexible schedule… work hard, play hard culture… I believed it. A career in a predominately male dominated industry where we helped the rich get richer. I supported it every day sitting hours after hours in a florescent lit room…. my “passion” of the market and creating deals drove me to that chair… for 13 years.
Every day I questioned why I was “doing this”. I despised sitting in a chair, in front of a computer in a florescent lit room.
I would sometimes reminisce to my college days… awe college… the opportunity to be exposed to a myriad of professions, ideals, ways of the world, and opportunities. To find your future career and path to success! Full of promises and goals I was driven to obtain a business degree.
Make money = be happy
It was how I was raised and I never questioned it… never questioned my obvious and always present curiosity for health and wellness. But… the ways of the world overshadowed my unquestionable interest in health and wellness and boldly told me to go make money… that’s what makes you happy.
I believed the lie… So off to commercial real estate I went!
14 years later… My soul was starving.
I yearned to be surrounded by like-minded women talking about essential oils and healthy muffin recipes. I yearned to raise MY babies in a healthy and happy environment. I connected the ever importance that I must be happy and healthy myself first.
I knew I could never be fully that in my then chosen career…. I knew it.
Then it happened. I quit my job, became a full time mom and created the space to listen to my soul messages.
The messages said….
Be curious…. and follow that.
Boom. Here I am… happier than ever sharing and discussing mindfulness, eating for wellness, essential oils, healthy muffin recipes, how to rid toxins from homes, how to live holistically, healthy, and helping expose the truth behind Big Food, Big Pharma, and Big Govt. My soul and mind are in harmony. It’s harmonious.Boom.
I am slowly learning that passion is overrated… some find it… some never will.
But EVERYONE is curious. Find your curiosity… that is the doorway to your soul’s calling.
Need more curiosity invoking inspiration!?!
