How do I follow my passion exactly?
Particularly if I don’t know what I’m passionate about.
I've never understood this piece of advice.
I mean, I like a lot of stuff.
But, 'passion' seems like a strong emotion, and nothing really ignites that kind of response for me right now.
What if I get to 80 and I still haven’t found my passion? Does that mean I’ve failed in life?
As a Health Coach, I blogged about my ‘passion’ for healthy food and lifestyle. But I’ve just finished off a share-pack of Malteasers by myself. Does that mean I’ve lost my passion health?!
How about, instead of following my passion, I follow my curiosity.
'Follow your curiosity'

Curiosity is something I can follow. And I can even start today.
I’m curious about a lot of things.
Can it really be as easy as following the things that keep me intrigued.
The things I go out of my way to learn more about in my spare time.
Perhaps it is.
By following the things I’m curious about, I feel I'm more likely to lead a path of self discovery and fulfilment (and perhaps even find my passion?).
That feels a lot lighter, don't you think?
There’s less pressure to feel passionate about something....
