There’s no doubt at times you feel like you have lost your confidence. You are starting to doubt your own competency and capability. This could be in anything that you’re doing. Could be your career, your studies, your role as a father or your role as a mother.
At times you would feel as high above in the cloud. At times you would feel you are at bottom rock. Here and presently, my confidence has shaken.
Perhaps the one thing that would help you the best at these times is knowing that everyone or anyone is there to support you. You may not realized this, but when you do realized, just try to not forget the moment and the feeling. You feel hope, you feel you have gained your confidence back slowly. Shall you not feel burdened on your shoulder, instead it shall felt like everyone helps you to lift yourself up.
What’s your passion? What are the things you do that you enjoy?
Everyone will have those things that they enjoy doing. Whether people consider them just a hobby or they consider it much more. When it comes to something that is much more than a hobby, it can be said that it’s your passion. Your passion may be a part of you and it may just define who you are. So what is passion?
Is something that you love to do. You have the feeling that you just have to do it, you have the urge, you have the desire, you have the patience, and you live with it. Without it, you feel empty and purposeless.
You invest your time! You may have or have not realized that you spend great deal of time with it. And when you the things that you are passionate about, times just fly. You just never felt the strain of waiting. It’s just time well spent you might say.
You set goals. You see yourself want to be better at what you are doing. It’s a milestone that you want to achieve. You want to grow and develop better. You just want to improve or fly like a soaring eagle if you will.
It can be your career for life. Well it’s hard to say that people eventually get to do the things that they love to. For example, if you love numbers and it is something you are passionate about, becoming a mathematician may just be the best thing to do. But we all have different passion and some can just be hard to turn it into your career. We have our choices. Those who had their passion as careers, great for them. But it is not a simple equation nor there any algorithm to make it work out.
If it is not your career, what can it be? It still can be the things that you enjoy and love doing in your daily life. You can have something to look forward to doing. You can have your passion as your stress-reliever from your work life.
So what are they exactly these passion? It can be anything – baking, singing, caring for animals, or even reading. Aren’t these things your hobby?? To some it may just be. To me passion and hobby may just have a difference. With passion, you have the desire to turn them into something more. Take baking for example. You may be a teacher by day which of course can be something that you actually love to do or consider it as your passion as well or it may be not. But out of work life, you may just have a small baking company from your home or something. It is something you love to do, you invested so much time in it, you set future plans for it and it can be so much more.
Another thing, this may be the first but I would like to hear what you have to say about this post. Share with me your passion!
We all do have that “plan” no doubt. What do we want to become when we grow up. What kind of car we want to drive. What kind of house we want to live in. But sometimes we just do not get what we want.
Though we have plans ahead of our life, we did not get things to be the way we wanted it to be. In fact, remember this, there are greater plans for us ahead. Greater things that we could not imagine ourselves. In the end, our lives turns out to be better than we thought.
Hence, when things do not go the way how we wanted it to be. We shall be patience, we shall withstand the pressure, we shall endure, we shall ask ourselves, why it has to be this way? Remember that there will some happiness and rewards that awaits us.
While if we were now at the top of the hill, we shall look back at things that we may have suffered when we were at the bottom of the hills. We shall remind ourselves the hardship and the support we got from people surrounding you.
As of for now, remember always that there will be reasons for things that has or had happened. Not to overthink it, just live the life how things are being at the moment. Life is simple, we breath in and breath out.
