“What is Your Passion?”

Usually when you meet someone, at least here in America, you go through the customary conversations.  “Hello, nice to meet you.”  “Likewise.  How are you?”  Something to that effect.  Well, a year or so back, I met this guy, a leader of a church college group, and his first words after hello were “What is your passion?”

Going through highschool, there were kids who knew what they wanted to do in life and kids who had no idea.  I had no idea.  I knew what i liked (writing, talking, discussing bible stuff).  but I had no idea what I would do when I got out into the “Real World”.  7 years later, I am only a little closer.  I have experience a lot of life, been places, met people, and done a lot.  But I still don’t know what I want to do.

So, when this guy asked me the question, I was taken aback.  I had no idea.  I finally answered writing but is that really my passion?  I enjoy writing, although its been hard for a while now.  Mega writer’s block.  In fact every word on this blog is painful to draw out.  But it is still my passion.  I am always in close access to a pen and some scrap of paper, or my phone with its handy note function.

Hopefully this will one day fit into “what I want to do with my life”.  Or maybe it will always remain a hobby, an escape, an outlet.  Who knows.

What is your passion?
