My passion - wherefore art thou?
Lately I have slowly but surely been falling into a strange place of the unknown.
I have no idea what I want to do with my life.
I Googled "How to Find Your Passion" simply because I have no idea what mine is is. I am a little worried because I am 29 years old now and the clock of my life is well and truly ticking.
I admire people who are living their passion and at the same time they baffle me. How did they know their path was the right one for them? What enlightens and inspires them? Personally this seems like a very difficult question for me to answer for some reason.
As a child I always dreamt of being a singer. I began singing lessons when I was thirteen years old just before I became unwell with anorexia and my lessons were swiftly replaced by years of Doctor appointments.
Fast forward to today (and minus an undeveloped singing ability) I made a list of the things I love:
Writing - I always carry a notebook around with me
Creativity- poetry and art mostly
Psychology and helping people - I put my heart and soul into studying this field
Fashion - I can spend hours window shopping and admiring beautiful clothes online
Where am I in this list?
I don't know.
I wish I did and soon.
