Finding Your Passion

“What is your passion?” This is a question I get asked quite often. Whether it be on an interview, in class by a professor, or by family/friends, this question has always been around me and until I began blogging, I never really understood it. I just didn’t get the whole “passion” thing. I am glad that I found my passion. It has transformed my life and has challenged me on so many levels and I am forever grateful.

I have many passions. Blogging is number 1 of course. My other passions have actually come out through blogging, for example, my passion for cooking/baking. I love creating new recipe content for you all! I get so excited trying new food and seeing what ingredients work and don’t work and I am amazed with the feedback I receive on these recipes! My love for fashion has grown even bigger as well! I even found a whole new passion for DIYs! I was never quite sure what my passions were growing up and it took well 21 years to really figure them out, which is why I am creating this post so that I can share how I found my passion and how you can find yours too!

Experience

Growing up I was super shy, especially when meeting new people. That changed once I got to high school, but even then I was still a little shy. After graduating high school, I got a job at Victoria’s Secret. I worked mainly behind the register and I loved it. I know some see VS as a store that promotes the “skinny girl,” but I see VS as giving all women the confidence to feel sexy. VS really challenged me to come out of my shell, I mean I obviously had to talk to strangers and meet all new friends (my co-workers) to be able to work there. That September, I began freshman year at my university. Speech is a required CORE class, which is usually taken in your first year. This class frightened me to the core. I hated standing in front of a room speaking, while everyone was silent starring at you. My professor made us all seem like friends though, so the class was actually really fun and not intimidating. Did I still get nervous when giving a speech? Hell yes, but not as nervous as I normally would be. I bring these two experiences up because, honestly if it wasn’t for VS and my speech professor I would probably still be in that shell of mine. Learning to not be afraid and becoming less shy opened me up.

Life

I have always loved fashion. When I was a little girl I would draw outfits and make them into a portfolio as if I was going to a job in the fashion district. I realized I had a passion for fashion when I began researching blogging and found bloggers with amazing style. I instantly fell in love and knew I was going to implement fashion into my blog. Along with fashion comes beauty. I will occasionally do a beauty or hair post because I am obsessed with beauty gurus! I watch their YouTube videos religiously. My passion for cooking actually came from my mom/family. Everyone in my family cooks so I obviously had to have recipes on TMD. I love experimenting with recipes and sharing them with you all! I mean who doesn’t love food? Lol. My passion for DIYs was developed from my best friend Elisa. Her and her mom are always doing DIYs together and I always love them! My favorite DIYs to make are my bath sugar scrubs! DIYs are just so fun and I love how they bring my creative side out.

Blogging

Where do I even begin? Blogging has truly been a game changer for me. It has shaped me into who I am today, and it has helped me find myself as a person. Having a space where I can put all my passions into one is amazing. I don’t blog for the views, comments or to become famous. I do it because I love writing, and sharing my passions with the world. Blogging helped me become more extroverted and not afraid. If someone doesn’t like the content I put out, it doesn’t bother me because I am doing it for me. Of course I love putting content out that my viewers love and want to see, but at the end of the day I am blogging for me.

With all this being said, I think finding your passion comes with experiences, and life. Apart of that is your surroundings, family/friends etc. I wouldn’t have found my passions without these things. If there is something that makes you happy and you love doing then I say go for it. Don’t be afraid to be passionate about something, do it for you. Having passion is so important. Find yours. Take a look at the things you find yourself doing constantly and decide if that’s a passion of yours. Thank you so much for reading! Xo!
