Hobby or Passion?

I just want you to consider the word ‘Hobby’.

The Wiki definition of the word is:

A hobby is a regular activity done for pleasure – typically during leisure e.g., collecting themed items and objects, engaging in creative and artistic pursuits, playing sports. Continual participation in a hobby can provide substantial skill and knowledge about it.

Now consider the word passion:

The Wiki definition of the word is:

Passion (from the Latin verb patī meaning to suffer) is a term applied to a very strong feeling about a person or thing. Passion is an intense emotion compelling, enthusiasm, or desire for anything.

If you go back over generations we were conditioned to believing that the thing you loved to do, that came easy to you, that was a pleasure to you, was just a hobby and that you needed to put this aside and get a proper job. A job was not something you had to enjoy, great if you did, but it was just a means to an end, it paid the bills!

Thankfully, we are awakening, and are now more aware.

Consider this:

To earn a living from doing something you love would mean you would never have to ‘work’ another day in your life!

If you are in a boring job, dread every morning and just live for the weekends, then now is the time to realise that life is for living not just for surviving.

We all have a talent, something we are passionate about, something that brings pleasure and fulfillment, and that something has been labeled a ‘Hobby’.  

It is not a ‘Hobby’ it is your Passion, your Talent and now is the time to bring your Talent to the forefront of your life. Even if you have to continue working, once you are pursuing your true passion, your life will have more meaning.

I believe we all have a life purpose and that purpose is to harness our Talent. The choice is yours; either ignore and forget your talent, or embrace it and live a fulfilled life.

As soon as you realise it isn’t just a ‘Hobby’ that it is your ‘Passion’, your ‘Talent’ then you will know the direction to follow and once you are on your path your life will become abundant.
