When I was a little girl, my dream of becoming someone famous seemed unlikely. I didn’t admire too many people, but I wanted to be like my oldest sister. She was a teen model and she traveled the world. The role models in my life were very limited, but my Mom was also one of them. She made sure that our needs were met and never complained about the unfortunate events that transpired in her life. My father was a distanced father. He was there physically, but never made himself emotionally available.
After graduating from high school, I planned to attend college, but had no idea of the major I wanted to pursue. Instead, I got married at the early age of 20, became an instant Mom and housewife, and that gave me a little sense of pride. Once my baby girl was old enough to attend school, I planned to take up a trade and found out the program had no longer existed. So, I embraced the role of a domestic engineer for thirty years.
I love a lot of things but I’m not too sure where my passion lies. I once heard someone say that your passion should be the very thing that makes the heart skip a beat. If you can find something that you thoroughly enjoy, even if you never got paid to do it, then you my friend have found your purpose. I know that I love to serve others and the thought comes to me often. I think to myself, if that’s your passion, why aren't you serving others? What is holding you back?
A lot of it has to do with finding myself. After being in a relationship for over 30 years, I lost myself. Now I’m on that road to getting back to me. I truly believe one needs to embark on their own journey to wholeness before they can benefit someone else, and maybe that’s the fuel that I need to help me find my passion.
I also believe the One who created me wants the very best for me. Just like parents want the best for their Children, God wants to give us a life of abundance. I know He can help me as long as I put my faith to work.
So, this is my first step. I love writing and encouraging others. I hope that you follow me through this wonderful journey to finding my passion.
