Your Life Passion Gives Your Life Its Juice

Finding your life passion can mean the difference between happiness and frustration. Do you know what you are passionate about? Is there anything in your life that makes you feel really, really good? Excited, alive, and switched on? If not, you either haven’t found your life passion yet, or you are neglecting it. Our passions are what give life its juice. To find your passion, and pursue it is one of the best ways you can use your time. Even if we do know what we really love, many of us feel that it is selfish to spend time and energy on doing things ‘just for fun.’ We think we should be serious and responsible, and spend our time working hard at fulfilling obligations. We feel noble and virtuous when we attend to endless chores and slave away at jobs we hate. We feel guilty about spending time on things that make us feel alive and happy. What a messed up way of looking at things! Doing what makes you happy is not frivolous or selfish- it’s smart. Being happy makes you healthier, more productive, and nicer to be around. And who are you really helping by working yourself into the ground doing things that don’t fulfill you? Does anyone truly benefit from the fact that you have an alphabetized spice rack, work fifty hours a week, and say ‘yes’ to so many requests that you have no energy to give to any of them? Do these things make you happy? If not, it’s time to stop and think about how you are spending the precious minutes and hours...
