P is for Passion


To live without passion is the same as being dead. We need passion in order for us to progress. We need passion in order for us to achieve our dreams. We need passion in everything that we do to become successful. Without passion, everything you do will be mediocre and lacking. Passion is everything.


I envy people who are very passionate about their work. These people don’t care much about money. What they care about is doing what they love to do. As what my former teacher said “don’t go after money. Let money go after you.” Find what it is that makes you happy and do it. Worry about the money later. As long as you are doing what you love to do, as long as you are passionate about what you do, money will eventually come.

I have to admit I am one of those people who are lost; in the sense that I don’t know what I want to do and I don’t know what I am passionate about. I always tell myself life is not a race and I don’t need to rush things. What I am meant to do will eventually come. But as the New Year started, it also made me feel pressured that I can’t keep doing things half-heartedly. I need to realize what I am passionate about and I need to start doing something for me to get there. I can’t be stuck doing something that doesn’t make me happy. I shouldn’t settle for anything less than what I deserve. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I am unhappy with my work. I am happy but I am not my happiest. I still dread Mondays and my mind wanders most of the time. I want to wakeup everyday feeling excited and looking forward to what it will bring me. I want to work like there is no tomorrow. I want to work like it doesn’t matter if I only got 3-4 hours of sleep. I want to work even if I don’t have weekends anymore or paid holidays. I want to work with passion.

I am not getting younger and I can only become older. I need to find my passion and I need to find the path to get there. In a perfect world, I will be able to do that but in reality, there is one thing that hinders me: fear. I fear that if I quit my job I won’t be able to sustain my lifestyle. I fear that if I start pursuing my passion things won’t go as well as I hoped they would and I would end up broke and homeless. I fear about failure. This is something that I really strive to overcome. I am a pessimist and I see everything half empty. If you are so used to being negative it is difficult to reverse your perspective and be positive. This is where my support group comes in. I need to surround myself with positive people and people who will support my passion. I need to shun people who will only make me feel down. I need people who will lift me up. I need people who will inspire me to keep going and to not be afraid of failure. We will all fail at some point in our lives – nobody’s perfect. But we need to keep going if we truly are passionate about what we do.


I already have an idea on what I want to do and I am really excited about it. When the concept has finally materialized (which will take a really long time but I hope to get it started and launched before the year ends) I will share it with you. But for now, I would really appreciate your kind support to help me push myself to get things started. That would mean the world to me.

  3. You are just the cutest! I am loving your style - and those shoes! Passion is always such an important element in everything you do. As they say, "Do it with passion or not at all."
