You believe you’ll be happy when you find the perfect passion. Well, that’s a big fat myth.
If you have to support yourself, you had bloody well better find some way that is going to be interesting. - Katherine HepburnEver felt despair that you should have “figured it all out” by now? You know, that nail-biting stress that everyone around you has found a job they love, but you still can’t make it past the question, “Well, what do I like to do, anyway?” It’s easy to get caught up in the idea that your passion needs to be the exact right perfect fit for you. Stressful, right? What if we’ve all been hoodwinked, and idea of a “perfect passion” is actually big old myth we’ve mistakenly buying for years? What if we can all put down the collective baggage of needing to get it right, and instead focus on getting it interesting. The truth is that your passion will evolve over time, because you are an interesting and awesome person, and YOU evolve over time. You try a new wine, you take up jogging, you decide yoga is for crazy stretchy people. My point is that YOU change. Let’s do a little case-study - shall we?
