I know it's been a minute since you guys have heard from me, but life has been keeping me pretty busy. Sometimes a little too busy. I'm always open to blog about any of your suggested topics, so feel free to continue sending me ideas. I love it. :)
Anyways...the topic that I wanted to touch on today is passion. So many people disagree with my views on this subject. We all have things that we are passionate about, and I believe that we all have a purpose on this earth. For the longest time, I've believed that our passion and our purpose were somehow connected. I mean...God wouldn't give us a vision if it had nothing to do with our purpose...right?
I'm not so sure.
These days, I'm realizing that the things that we were put on this earth to do actually don't involve pressure. Take modeling for example. I've witnessed many girls struggle with their weight, and suffer from eating disorders. I just do not believe that God wants people to suffer like that. If I didn't have such a fast metabolism, I would not model. I love food way too much. Me breaking up with food would be me putting pressure on a situation that was not meant to be. (Lol...ok...maybe that was a bit dramatic, but do you get where I'm going with this?).
Once pressure gets added to situations the situations no longer feel good. I personally do not think that anyone should be participating in anything that does not feel good to them, or is not conducive to their evolution. People make it seem that in order to get what you want you have to sacrifice so much and things are so hard. If that were the case then why do things come so easily to some people and not others? Possibly because everything is not meant for everybody. I do agree you have to work for things that you want, but when you put your everything into something and it just does not work out, do you really think that you are working toward your purpose? I think that working against the universe has nothing to do with your divine purpose.
From my experiences:
-I know when I'm going in the right direction, is when God opens many doors for me, and the energy on the situation is positive.
-I know that I'm passionate about something when I don't consider what I do to be work.
-Things that I've had to put pressure on often turned out not to be the right situation for me. This goes for anything in life, from relationships all the way down to jobs.
So what do you think? Do you think that it is okay to force a situation because of our own personal wants? Or do you think that we should focus on finding our purpose, which will lead us to finding our passion?
