Have you found it? I know for myself I have lost it, looked for it, found it, lost it and looking for it. Knowing what I thought it was was amazing. I felt happy, energized and confident. When I lost it I felt sad, hopeless and frustrated. The search was reading books and reading anything online that I thought would open up my world and become that glorious moment. The "Ah-Ha" moment. I so admire those who from a small age just know it. Those that find it early on. The people with such blessings as obvious talents like a neon sign above their head light the way. My talents aren't so obvious but many developed over a long time. Some are in need of some serious dusting off.
Those that have found their passion well Bravo! Continue on even if it seems unreal and hard. Being excited and passionate is such a gift. Encourage those around you that are lost and need some cheerleading in their life. When you encourage others you are also encouraging yourself.
For the still confused well keep searching. Never ever give up even when it seems hopeless. I have read alot of books but one of the best I have read recently is by Barbara Winter. It's called Making a Living Without a Job. Great information and very real. Usually they tell you to look back when you were a child and try to remember what were the things that you loved to do. For me there were too many. So I broke my life down in age increments. I started at 5 to 10 years of age. Then 11 to 13...14 to 18...19 to 24. After that I thought you know there are certain things I loved then and I still love. I am older and some of the ideas are past their expiration date but I realized some aren't. So I am now figuring out how to work on obtaining my passion that fits in my life and responsibilites I have now. Yoda in Star Wars said "there is no try only do!" I love that. One of best friends told me you will definitely have your answer if you never try...which is, No.
So continue to search! They also told Fred Astaire the famous dancer that he could dance "a little". Ha...then look what happened. I came across a website that is pretty interesting. You might want to check it out...go to http://www.sitsgirls.com/. We all need support and networking right? You would be surprised how many people out there still want to help others. I haven't told you anything earth shattering or new I know. Just know that I am right there with ya. I am not giving up until the Lord calls me home. We were all blessed with a gift...now lets continue to care for it and/or search it out. If you have anything to share on this topic I would love to hear it! Come on help a sister out!!!! Love you all! Remember........ Courage! XO Carrie
