When my children came, as all you parents know, this is a big time of learning for yourself and also a time to teach your growing children lots of new and wonderful things. When they started school, I volunteered like crazy and had my little part in teaching and helping children and loved this very much. I also started a Youth Group at our church that we met once a month and taught crafts, songs, readings and also had a lot of fun with exercise, food and so much more!
Now that my children are older and are busy doing teenage stuff : ) ~ they are so independent and amazing and I am so proud of them, but I asked myself... OK now what? Have you ever been there?
I went looking online for some inspiration and started following a few strong successful women that are doing the passions from their heart. And here are some of the tips I have learned from them that I have found the most helpful when it comes to finding your Passion/Dream Job (I hope you do too):
- Find your passion ~ what do you think about when you daydream, doodle, have a few spare minutes?
- Make a list of dreams that you have ~ don't hold back and pre-judge anything that you want to write down. Just let everything come out onto the paper and then when you go back over it, then decide where to go with your list.
- Keep a journal. Write in your journal the dreams that you have, ideas to use, drawings to inspire. Whatever inspires and comes into your mind, put that into your journal. Some people have a different journal for different topics (food, dreams, recipes, business, etc). I personally like to go and pick out really pretty and inspiring journals, I don't know about you, but I have many empty journals just sitting there ready to be written in on my shelf!
- Find a mentor(s) ~ that you can meet with in person or learn from online or from a book. If you are like me, I have a few of them that I have never met, but follow them online and learn so much from them! There are so many wonderful people in this world that are so willing to share their knowledge. Also, there are many books and videos you can purchase and/or loan from the library that you can learn from!
Surprising to me, but not to others, is that I am now doing my passion, but in a different way. I am teaching others with Nutrition, Business and Health. I find it amazing where my path is leading and it is not where I thought it would go when I was little, but it is leading me to somewhere that is making a difference in people's lives and can go in so many different ways ~ this is very exciting and a little bit scary (if I am honest) to me!
Life is an amazing ride ~ why not do something that is the 'Passion of your Heart'??
Please comment below with any advise you have to help people find their passion. What is your passion? I would love to know!
Sending you love and dreams
