Some people call it destiny; some people call it a calling, or a purpose. But whatever it is, following your passion is about more than just clichéd definitions. Sayings like “follow your heart,” “find your bliss,” or “don’t give up on your dreams” have been repeated so often that they sound ordinary to us now. But before they were clichés, they were rooted in truth. And they became so popular for a reason.
Anyone who’s woken up day after day to drag themselves into a job they hate or a life they find unfulfilling will tell you there is something missing in their lives. The boring activities of an uninspired life will wear you down eventually. Human beings are adventurous, creative, and passionate creatures, and our lives were meant to be lived that way. The mediocrity of an unfulfilling life is enough to make people wonder what the point is to what they’re doing. Why are you living a life you don’t enjoy?
If you’ve ever had a nagging thought in the back of your mind that you were meant for more than this, or you’ve had a dream you’ve been ignoring…the time has come to act on it. You were given that dream for a reason. Whether it’s having a family, or starting a bakery, or writing the next hit song—your dream comes from a place of inspiration deep within your soul, and it shouldn’t be ignored!
When you live a life that doesn’t ignite your soul with passion, every day becomes monotonous. Your life becomes little more than a string of mediocre days all tied together. But when you seek after the things you love, the things you hope for and dream of, life becomes an exciting adventure. And that’s what human beings were made for!
Even if you’re pretty content with how things are, chasing after your dream can mean the difference between a pretty decent life and an incredibly fulfilling life. Who wouldn’t want that? Don’t be afraid to follow your dreams...you were given them for a reason!
