Your Passion Is Your Calling

Your Passion Is Your Calling

Take a pause and think of what you’re good at. Now think of how you can incorporate that into your daily life. Now this passion does not have to be a part of your job, it can be something like a hobby. But whatever it is let it call you, and answer it.

I previously wrote about distractions, and how it limits us from our actions, and this is pretty much like your passion trying to call you, but you keep declining the call, so it leaves you a message, and you still don’t return its call. Don’t allow time to pass you by so much that you’re missing out. Not necessarily on opportunities, but more so on  life. LIVE a little 😛

Tap in to what you’re good at, because it is not just about you, but instead the bigger picture. INFLUENCE! I was thinking the other day about how much I enjoy making an impact on people. Helping them, encouraging them, making them laugh, think, and feel good overall. This is something I’m good at. I’ve always been the light of a dark day, and this has always been a natural thing, but as I become older, I’m learning that not everyone enjoy this LOL. Making people feel good draws them closer to you because it is warm, non-judgmental bonding type of vibe, and you can’t get that everywhere. However, there are people who are not use to that type of treatment, so it makes them feel a little uncomfortable when you try to LIGHTen them up. That use to bother me, that they were bothered with my positivity, but then I realized that many people are not use to that. Some people thrive when negativity strikes, and that has nothing to do with you. But don’t allow that to distract you, keep driving and digging to your calling. 

Don’t allow your passion to become dampened because of what, or who is around you. This can be tricky, and damn right discouraging, but instead allow your passion to call you more, put that ringer on blast! When I say tap into your passion, I’m thinking intensely so, making it a part of your life, period! We all have all daily tasks and habits, but imagine how greater it is to include your passion into it. I bet you’d have a better day, or make someone else’s day better. If you like singing, then sing! any chance you get, and feel good about doing it too. Tap in to it more, by making time for it, because you want to. It begins with your mindset, and wanting to do something is better than having to do it. Don’t turn your passion into a chore. We already have enough going on as humans, so don’t make your passion a burden. Even if you become tied up with your responsibilities, make some type of effort to tap in. For example, I’ll carry a journal around so I can write, or sometimes in my phone. Doing this makes room for me to still enjoy making others feel good, while making myself feel good in the process. You want your passion to create balance to better serve you and others around you. It is your world. 

To be good at anything, you must practice it, so you can master it!


Find a Creative Outlet!

I want you to understand the importance of being creative…

What is your hobby? Or better yet, what is your escape? This can go for anything. It’s an adventure for when you’re thinking, sad, mad, or glad. Or what do you that is unique, or pretty much a talent you cherish very much? If you didn’t have an answer to any of these questions, then you need to find a creative outlet!

Your creative outlet doesn’t necessarily need to involve art, such as painting, or drawing. It can actually involve anything. To state it simply, I like to look at it as something that gets you to think and escape. For me, it’s writing, reading, cooking, and working out. My creative outlets are something that I do on a regular, and I find it very rewarding. I wanted to write about this, because I’ve noticed how there are some people who don’t have a creative outlet, and I believe it is important.

Your creative outlet is your stamp. Like your secret message to the world. It’s what you take as an inspiration and flip it to your own making. It’s a beautiful thing and should always be cherished. I find my inspiration from everything and everyone, even when it comes from a negative place. What helps me, and can help others, is to make the experience into a positive one. For instance, some artist may get their inspiration from their childhood, and if it was an unpleasant experience, they somehow create a masterpiece, and then share it to the world.

Your Hobby, or Creative Outlet is What You Are Passionate About

This is what we need, and this is how each and one of us can evolve. Some of my inspiration comes from music, celebrities, authors, the list can go on. But what I really take from them is how they overcame adversity. And a lot of this had to do with their creation. Their outlet was the masterpiece from their shortcomings, and we can all learn from this. There’s no one specifically, but when you think about it we all have something in common, we go through ups and downs like everyone else, but we deserve to be rewarded right?

A lot of us become stuck in a routine. We work, have kids, have pets, run errands, pay bills, and barely have time on the weekend. But where do we fit in our personal “me time”? I find it unfair in a way, because we work so hard, but not work on something that is so endearing, or personal to us. I find it rewarding when you do, and it feels good to share it with others, as I’m sure they feel good seeing the masterpiece. So think to yourself and think of creating your outlet. We each have so much power within ourselves, but may not have the time, and why not?

Your creative outlet is just as important as anything else, so why put it on pause. Let’s say you like to read, try waking up earlier than usual, or try reading just before bed. Whatever the outlet is, I think it is important to find a way, and continue to work on it. Either way, you have the power to make arrangements to better your situation, that’s if you really want to…right?

The reason why I’m so passionate about this is because there are some people who are too busy living under a rock, and that’s not the way to live. By this, I’m not only observing some people not actively accomplishing their goals, but also the way they think. They are becoming more and more closed in, and we need to open them up. When you involve yourself with a creative outlet, that’s what it’ll do! It’ll help you open your mind to a whole new horizon. You find out more about yourself that you haven’t before. So give it a try! Find a hobby that interest you and see how you feel. The more you do it the better, and you’ll become a master of your own creative outlet.
