CURIOSITY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN PASSION
Passion. Just follow your passion and you will live a happy and fulfilled life. This is something we are told growing up, but what if you have no idea what that "passion" is? Never has something resonated with me as much as the quote by Elizabeth Gilbert that says "curiosity is more important than passion". Of course there are things that light a fire in our bellies and get us out of bed in the morning, but what happens when that fire fades? Or what if this hunger can't be translated into a way to make a living? Searching for passion feels big, scary, fleeting, even unattainable. A be-all end-all in which failure feels inevitable.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE what I do, but to say that I wake up every day full of passion would be a lie. However, the pursuit of curiosity and making the decision to actively continue my personal growth, totally lights me up. I am a big fan of podcasts, reading, journaling, trying new things, and good old fashion conversation with interesting people. In my quest to seek insight and knowledge of things unknown to me, topics have certainly piqued my interest along the way. And who knows, if nurtured and explored, some of these interests may just become passions down the line. But, in the meantime, being passionately curious is certainly filing my tank.
