I was on Pinterest the other day searching for positivity and uplifting material, as always, when I stumbled across an interesting image. It was a series of 10 questions to ask yourself to help you find your passion. I decided to share that list with you, along with the creator of it, and my answers. You might be surprised at what my passion is. Are you ready to find your passion? Answer these questions along with me.
Make sure to scroll till the end to find links to great resources for mental health and to let me know about your passion!
What was your favorite thing to do growing up?
Honestly I loved playing teacher. It was my absolute favorite thing to do for the longest time. I had 2 younger siblings and neighborhood kids to teach. But really I was just in it for the desk and “paperwork” lol.
When you were a child what did you dream of doing when you grew up?
The only thing I remember was wanting to be a teacher and a mom. I always knew I wanted to be a mom for sure. Once I was old enough I started babysitting my siblings and then for friends and family members.
I think I might’ve considered working in a daycare or nanny as well. Which I have done for many, many years helping out friends. I love all my babies that I’ve ever sat with. And believe me, there’s quite a list!
I also wanted to be a hairstylist for a while. When I got into high school, I really got a love for beauty and style but never really had a lot of my own haha. My high school had a program where we could attend cosmetology during our junior and senior year. I did this only to realize behind the chair wasn’t the life for me.
But it’s ok because it was an experience I’ll never forget and I’ll always have a few tricks up my sleeve.
What is your favorite topic to talk about?
Well obviously, motherhood. I also love sharing the power of positivity. Mommin’ is what I do all day, everyday. So it’s the main thing I have to share. I also struggle with feelings of being overwhelmed and anxious. I’ve learned a lot of ways to help with these thoughts and feelings just by focusing on my mindset.
I love to share those tips with others and that’s the whole reason I started this blog. To give me a platform to reach more people than just those on my Facebook friends list.
What do you like doing so much that you lose track of time?
Writing. Hands down. I was on Facebook the other day in a bloggers group, and I saw someone ask, “how long does it take you to write? 4 hours usually for me.” And I was like !!!!! What? 4 hours? No way, not me. I finish a 1,000 word post, editing, etc in like 40 minutes.
So then I was like, “you know what? Let me time myself.”
Yeah, it took me like 4 hours too lol. But I love doing it! I get so lost in it that I lose track of time. I stay up late at night after my family has gone to bed just so I can get all my thoughts down on paper. (Errr my iPhone notes really)
Whose life do you envy the most and why?
I can honestly say I don’t have feelings of envy for anyone. I’m happy with my life and I’m happy for others in their journey as well. I’ve learned to appreciate what I have, who I have, and the journey that I’m on. It’s a wonderful feeling.
What would you do differently with your education if you got the chance to start over?
Hmm..that’s a good one. I struggled in high school because of health issues. After high school I became a mom so I wasn’t focused too much on college but once I was, I rushed it. I saw a commercial on tv (don’t ever go to a college with a commercial on tv) and decided to “request more info” and got sucked in from there lol.
So if I could turn back time, I would completely skip that and honestly skip college all together. I am all for continuing education but for myself and my career path, it just wasn’t what I needed.
If you had 5 minutes and the world was forced to listen what would you say?
Smile more. Smile at strangers. Even when they catch you in your Resting Bitch Face. When you happen to make eye contact with someone, smile. It’s that simple.
If we could all be a little more friendly and uplifting to each other, the world could be a calmer place. You don’t know how badly someone may need that glimpse of friendship.
Everyone has a super power. The power of positivity. You just have to be able to pull it from inside your thoughts and project it into the world.
What would you do with your life if you had no fear?
Well if I had no fear, I’d probably be able to speak in front of large groups of people. So I would travel around the world and share my “5 minutes of positivity” like I just talked about above.
What would you do with your life if you had a guarantee of success?
That’s a hard one. I really enjoy being a mom and staying home with my littles so a career isn’t fitting. Writing for company though would probably be ideal and fun for me. But it would have to be a topic I enjoy, like motherhood and mindset.
So I would have to start my own company to talk about that topic. Which is exactly what I’ve done with my blog. My brand is to do just that. Share about my favorite topic and inspire others to live a more positive life.
What would you do with your life if money was no issue?
I would buy a nice home for my family on a lot of land, but still close to town. I would have an office set up for myself and my hubby, so we could both work from home. We would invest our money into our brands and helping others.
One of our goals in life is to donate and give back regularly. I would love to set up a business just for that. Solely for giving back to the community and a way to help others join in.
So did you learn about how to find your passion?
From those questions and answers, did you learn a bit about my passion? It helped realize that I have a few. Answering these questions for yourself will help you do the same.
Maybe you need some guidance in where your life is headed. Or maybe you’re just curious if you’re thoughts really line up with what you’re truly passionate about. Either way, doing this exercise will give you some sort of benefit.
