It feels like its been ages since I last wrote one of these, but I will say, it feels so good to be back. I didn’t realize how much comfort writing words on a keyboard brought to me until I stopped. Writing is my way of expressing how I feel, it’s my love language, my happy place. I get such a rush when I’m in my zone. Music in the background, people talking, lawn mower buzzing, dog panting, nothing can stop me when I’m in a creative rush. Writing brings me joy, and I think everyone should have that thing in their life that excites them, something that you could talk about for hours without getting bored, a passion.
We are driven and compelled by our passions. For some its music, for others drawing, maybe yours is dancing or cooking or running or motivating or like me, writing. Our passions, these things that we’re obsessed with, that we can’t imagine living our life without, aren’t given to us by accident, these are our purpose.
We were made to serve. If you’re like me, you believe that God gave us these gifts to glorify Him and make his presence known. If we don’t share the same beliefs, you can’t deny the fact that your passion has helped you serve those around you. Sister had a bad day? Your beautiful song cheered them up. New neighbor just moved in? Your fresh baked cookies made them feel welcomed. Friend’s been feeling unworthy? Your beautifully written words shared with them how much they’re loved and wanted.
We all have a purpose. Maybe you haven’t found yours yet but I promise you, I pinky swear, you have one. We each have our own set of skills and abilities that are unmatched and we should be using those to uplift and support one another.
Although this is a short and sweet, I wanted to leave you all with some food for thought. If you haven’t found your passion yet, I challenge you to identify it. Write a list of all the things that you’re good at and absolutely couldn’t live without doing. Secondly, if you already know what your passion is, use it to uplift or appreciate someone around you. I promise your actions will not go unseen.
