Is Your Passion Already Within?
I’m curious. Is your passion an innate one, already within you, or one you “trip” over and becomes your passion?
I’ve had many passions: To be an artist, a Registered Nurse…. “Dreams” change and depending on where you are in your life they can morph into unsuspecting ones.
Growing up I don’t really remember having a dream per say. I just had to survive. I didn’t know where I was going to live or for how long so I spent time alone, a lot as a kid – as I remember. Depending on adults as a child, well you have no choice. So, when I came of age I began to depend on myself and make my own way. I didn’t have a “voice” like I have today.
Circumstances can also change the direction of your dream. But I still ask myself that question “What’s my dream, what do I want to accomplish in my life ..”.
One thing is clear – helping others. This has been a thread that’s weaved in and out of my life ever since I can remember. – as well as a very creative part of me And now, I see my current passion is the community I’ve nurtured for the past 2 years – PAC (Power Affiliate Club).
My passion now is to see PAC take off, being the recommended “hub” for bloggers, new and seasoned. I’d LOVE to grow and be the next “Huffington Post” for bloggers. I have such a drive to keep it going. To keep inspiring, teaching through effort based community activities, and promoting members.
One of the most delightful experiences I have is members coming to me with suggestions and programs they want to run. For example Mandy Allen had the great idea for creating and coordinating a “PAC Blogging Carnival” that members could participate in. PAC is a platform for experimenting, discovering interests, and building skills such as writing. This is what PAC does .
Years ago I wanted to start an Art Community, but the internet wasn’t around then. Today because of the internet, you can do so many things. My art community, today, is PAC. I love it and the members we have.
So how did I get here? I just went with the flow, an opportunity came along – an idea and I ran with it. I don’t know where it’s going. I just know I keep building it, finding ways to help promote our members who are all building their own presence online. If PAC can help generate more exposure and results for them – that will make my day.
To answer my own question, I think there is an innate interest that appears when the surroundings or opportunity presents itself. Then the rest is up to you what you choose to do with what’s been given to you.
Right now, this time in my life, it’s PAC.
How do you view “Dreams” and ” passion” , your life’s goal?
