We all had dreams and passions throughout life. We sometimes were even criticized for them, and then slowly walked away from those core dreams or passions. They’re important, they are part of who we are. Take time to stop and smell the roses. Think through these questions:
1) What was I most passionate about as a child….as a teen…as a college student…?
2) Have I lost those passions or dreams? Why or why not?
3) Should I bring back that passion? (Maybe how it looks is vastly different then our first idea, but the essence and passion is still there to grab a hold of.)
First loves are an important thing. We can easy lose our grip on what is core to who we are. We never know what will trigger this though process. For me, it was reading a book. As I was reading it, I kept asking why it struck such a huge core. Well, the things discussed were core to my passion as a teenager. It’s refreshing to bring that back.
Stop and smell the roses, reflect on past dreams and passions. They will fuel future and current challenges you are facing.
