Love Or Lust? Finding Your Passion

By Robert Kennedy III

You’ve probably heard the statements made about finding your passion.  You’ve probably heard people talking about how much they absolutely LOVE what they do because they are doing what they love.  You’ve been told find work doing what you love and you’ll never have to work another day in your life.  That is rare.  How many people do you know, yourself included that are just doing what they LOVE everyday?  If I’m being honest with you, I will tell you that is fairly uncommon.  You’ll also hear that if you want to find your passion, put yourself around people that are doing what they love and working in their passions.

However, there is one big elephant in all of this.  MONEY!!!  Those pesky, doggoned bills.  That unforesakeable grocery list. Ughh!  OK, so the grocery list is an absolute necessity.  But, the reality is that as much as I would like to find my passion, I still have to……well….live life, right?  So, do I get to do something I love or am I destined to have my tongue out, drooling, lusting as it walks by me everyday?

Here’s my thought.  Some people find their passion and get to work IN it.  Some get to work ON it.  Some get to work TOWARDS it.  Then there are those who get to work so that they can DO it.  Yes, some people love their work. Others work doing what they love.  And still others work so that they can THEN do what they love.  And those are all ok!

I do believe that there is a way and maybe a time in all of our lives that we can work doing what we love.  But, it may only be for a specific season.  In the meantime, you can still find what you love, find what you are passionate about and work on getting there.  You can also choose every day to have the attitude that your current situation is a part of the process on your way toward your passion.  It may not be easy but it’s possible.

Create a new attitude today!
