Passion is within all of us we just have to tap into it. Self-discovery and knowing thyself is the ultimate remedy to find, apply and execute your desire. For many years I juggled between jobs that temporarily satisfied my curiosity and livelihood. It was a pleasuring idea that I mapped out and planned, and it always worked, but as usual, I ended up tossing it aside. Been there, did that, don't like it anymore was my favorite sayings. The avoidance of being committed to one thing was overwhelming until I realized that I could not do it anymore. My passion is communication in the form of writing.
The feeling of not being good enough to write is no longer holding me captive. It is strange to let people in on my weakness, but I know someone out there needs to hear it. Since a kid, I idolized those with formal education and fumbled when it came to speaking in front of these gifted individuals. I thought they would figure out this country girl with a thick southern draw and limited vocabulary is a fraud. Unfortunately I assumed degrees would change all of that. I have nearly $105,000 worth of education and debt instilled in me and still feel intimidated about my disserations. I don't think the crippling fear of it will ever go away, and that is where my passion lays.
Will I ever master writing? Probably not, but practicing makes perfect. I am telling you this because a writer exist in all of us, struggling to get out. We should share our thoughts and be open to others while constricting our insecurities and limiting the sensitivity that harbors inside when it comes to expressing ourselves on paper. Learn to overcome it and don't be afraid of displaying your passion.
