Finding one's passion

Monday, February 23, 2009

This is new to me but felt the need to write so here I go!!

I have struggled with this notion - finding my passion in this life. There are many things I like and enjoy but nothing I can honestly say I feel 'passionate' about. How do I find it. I try new things with the support and encouragement of my DH but still, no luck. I envy folks who know what theirs is (or are) and can live it daily. I feel like I'm missing something. Not sure why but I feel there is an empty spot that is this 'passion'.

I've made lists of things I like and don't like, I've taken classes, I know I can't afford to try all things as that too is life. So what is next? I am enjoying my life, don't get me wrong. It is better now that I'm 50 than when I was 30 short of my kids being around. They are grown and finding their own lives so that is the biggest difference. I am in a second marriage with a man who understands me and supports me so this too is a benefit at this age and stage. But how do I find what I feel I'm missing?

    I wish I had a ready answer to give, but I have to say I feel exactly the same way. I too envy those who have a strong passion that they can follow and have often wondered how you find it if you haven't all ready.

    Maybe someone wiser will answer and we can both find out!
