Now that the romantic part of passion has been played out, hopefully in all sorts of wonderful ways, and it has been a day full of sweet surprises. This being a very busy time of the year for me, I get to be a part of the story in the lives of people. I share my passion and I've been thinking about that a lot lately. Is what I do my Passion or my Gift?
Passion or Gift.....
I find this question to be powerful in itself. Is what you do your passion or your gift? I feel most people believe them to be one in the same. However, I believe it’s far more complicated than that. People chase and glamorize what they feel is their passion and minimize their true gifts.
When I think of a passion, I thing of a strange emotional connection to something, it doesn’t even have to be based in reality. You can have many passions and they can change over the course of your life. How wonderful would it be to have a passion filled life.
Now a gift, well a gift is something different. A gift is a part of you, it makes you who you are. It’s something that comforts you. The thing you turn to when all else fails because it feeds you in a way that nothing else can. The funny thing is that a gift doesn’t have to be big and extravagant. I think that's why it’s so often overlooked, and even worse, undervalued.
I've come face to face with this question, Gift or Passion? I came up with this, if you can create a life that embraces your passions and strengthen your gifts .You will be creating one that's enriched and meaningful. I believe my passion is all things beautiful and sweet. I'm passionate about the creativity I use to make these magical moments in time. Not just for my family, but for yours and anyone else who dares to follow their dreams.My gift...teaching.Sharing and inspiring others do the same.
