One year ago I sat in a conference room at a retreat and after listening to several people speak, and watching a few videos I was asked the question “What is your passion?” I had no answer and I was devastated. For years my passion was wife and mother. Don’t get me wrong that was very fulfilling for me and I would not trade it for the world. But in that moment when I could not produce an answer it left me feeling anxious, sad, and sometimes hopeless, until today.
At approximately 7pm this evening I was finally able to answer that question. My passion is writing, sharing my story and helping other’s who have been through what I have. It was the best feeling, and I haven’t felt that good in a very long time. Even though I”ve had some accomplishments since the divorce, like getting an actual job, this was different.
In that moment of extreme clarity I felt like I had a purpose. I know there are millions of people out there who are struggling with divorce and loss and I’m just another blip on that screen, but if I can help just one other blip my dreams will be realized. I did have family and friends to turn to during my time of loss but what I was missing was true life stories to compare to. I was so busy with the act of getting a divorce that I didn’t look to see if there were other’s like me out there.
I want to be that “search result” when someone else does their Google search. I would like my stories, reflections and words to calm the souls of those who are struggling. I feel like I am on the right path to doing just that and with the continued love and support of my friends, family, and fellow bloggers I will be on my way to becoming who I want to be when I grow up!
So I need to ask what is your passion?
