I would like to talk about passion and doing things passionately. As it turned out without passion, everything in my life seems meaningless, joyless and boring. First of all, let's define passion. Dictionary meaning of passion is a strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement for something or about doing something. For me its a strong energy that comes from deep inside my heart towards someone or something.
Sometimes I can get so caught up in the act of living that I forget why I'm living. While it's important to do what's necessary; it's also important to take time to reflect on the life I'm creating. When I turned back and looked behind, I realized that life goes swiftly almost without any memorable experiences. That was the time I decided to change my life.
I kept asking myself why I am unhappy, why I find everything meaningless and why I am not excited enough while doing things. As it turned out the answer lies behind the mask and its simple. Whatever happens, I should learn to live passionately and do things with passion. I resisted living a conventional life that everything seems traditional and boring. Because when you start living like this, you will never understand that your life becomes your imprisonment so fast. You began searching for happiness and joy but you may never find it because your thoughts about passion start to fade as time goes by.
In order not to lose time and start learning to live with the passion I found out some ways to adapt. I want to share these and would love to hear your thoughts as well.
1. Do it now, not tomorrow
The point is to actually take action rather than just planning it in your mind for months or years and constantly making excuses as to why you "can't" do it. If you see something that needs changing, be sure to start today – start right now.
2. Keep walking
Sometimes life can hit hard and events can go in an unexpected way. The thing is, you have to move forward without any hesitation. When you achieve this, your soul will become bulletproof and your mindset starts to think in a more positive way. Just try to see what's good in your life and keep calm.
3. Nobody is perfect even you
You should keep telling yourself that perfection isn't required and mistakes are welcomed. Just remember that we are not perfect creatures and so do our actions. The important thing is we should learn from mistakes and we should optimize our wants and desires towards the person we marry and love or towards the thing we want.
4. Believe in yourself.
Take charge of your own beliefs and expect to see the best in yourself. When you are confident enough, everything around you will become much more simple than it is. Live every moment, every choice and every day like you own it. People can do things which seem impossible. Why shouldn't you?
5. Be with those you love and love what you do.
It's really easy to forget to keep in touch with those you love. Love flourishes when it is shared with people you love. You should remember that love feeds the passion and vice versa. It is also true for the things you do. If you aren't passionate about your job, consider what you would love to do and then begin moving in that direction or try to find a way that makes you feel excited and passionate.
6. Look in the mirror and confront yourself.
Your passion is as personal as your fingerprint. It's there, inside, just like your heartbeat. It's the thing or things that really matter to you. Nobody can bring passion to you, only you can find it. Find time to listen to your inner voice, your inner wisdom, by asking, What do I need? or What do I want?
"I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious."
7. Think different.
This gives you the ability to test different ideas and then finding which ones bring you the most happiness, peace, and purpose.
8. Live your own life.
Try not to become a different person or not to live in a different way. By living another person's life, you could lose your energy to focus on your own values. Walk your path at your own speed and in your own way – it doesn't matter how others walk their path.
9. Embrace yourself and people you love.
Don't be afraid to become the person you want to be by realizing your worth and doing what you were made to do. Embrace yourself and the acts you do as you embrace the people you love.
10. Reserve some time.
You should make time to listen to your inner voice and to follow your heart.
Live passionately and be 😊
