Passions should not have if's and but'sI believe that when you have a passion for being something, work for it, work towards and never give up. When I shared this, I was told that it is easier said than done.
For an instance, we know that being a mother must be or rather is the best thing to happen to a woman. In the process of motherhood, why do they have to leave behind the things that they used to love doing the most? I have known many of my colleagues in office who would regret leaving their passion behind. This is how our conversation went with one of them-
Colleague: I was once very passionate about playing the violin but now with responsibilities I hardly find time to practice. Now it lies somewhere in the corner.
Me: That's sad! What don't you start over now that your kids have started their school?
Colleague: That's still not possible, I have to wake up early, prepare breakfast and lunch for my in-laws, kids, and husband and I have to myself rush and get ready for office. So now I cannot get back to that routine of practicing violin like I used to do.
Me: How about in the evening, once you are back from work?
Colleague: Even that's not possible as I have to teach my kids and prepare dinner. I barely get time to breathe.
I kept quiet as there was nothing more I could say or convince her to start practicing what she once loved doing. I started thinking, would it be the same with me. I love blogging, will I be able to do things that I love once I get married.
Then I reminded myself, Passions should not have if's and but's.
Let me ask you or request to pick that old passion of yours which is lying somewhere in the corner and hone that skill. Don't give up.
