Passion: a strong and barely controllable emotion
I’ve been asking myself for weeks now what my passion is. There are lots of things that I love to do, and people that I love to hang out with, but nothing that I really consider a ‘passion’. In my Digital Literacy class, we have discussed passion based learning and how in order to teach, the teacher must first be the student. So how can I teach my future students to pursue their passion when I don’t even know what mine is?
I start to think about my mom and how it took her until she was married and had three kids to realize that she absolutely loves to run wrestling tournaments. This is her passion. She travels around the world to do it. I think she’s nuts but that’s what people with passions look like to people without passions. They look like total nut-cases.
What am I supposed to do? How do I find my passion? Do I have to wait another twenty years until it finds me or do I actively pursue every possibility until I find a passion? If I have to pursue one is it forcing a passion onto myself? Can that even be considered a passion if it’s forced?
I just don’t know anymore.
I’m having a mid mid-life crisis.
