When your Passion Becomes your Purpose

Do you know what your passion is? I know this may seem like a big question, but do you?

Think of it this way: if someone gave you a microphone right now, what would you talk about? Music? Art? Sports? Traveling? Politics? Baking? 😉

For some people, their passion is a hobby while for others, it’s their purpose. For years, I’ve been jealous of those who get to live a life based on what they love to do every single day because that’s what I’ve been searching for.

When I started Karmic Sweets, people would often ask me if I was going to quit my teaching job to bake full time. Truth be told, that was the dream at first until I realised how many cupcakes I would have to sell on a weekly basis. The answer is WAY TOO MANY!

So I mixed it with another passion (writing) and started a blog (which you’re reading! Thank you!) thinking that would be it, but I still felt as if something was missing.

When I went to Gabrielle Bernstein’s Spirit Junkie Masterclass Level 1 last June, I was hoping to find the missing piece, but what I found was a whole other puzzle.

That entire weekend, I waited for an AH-HA moment and when it came to me on Sunday afternoon, it caught me a little off guard to say the least.

What came up for me that day was a whole other project, one that would mix my already existing career with a new passion that was quickly emerging : wellness and wellbeing.

I started writing down all of the ideas that came to me in a notebook not really knowing how all of this would come to fruition. I just knew I had to write everything down.

Ok, so I may have filled two journals and a binder…I told you I had LOTS of ideas!

I questioned. I doubted. I worried about what all of this would mean for Karmic Sweets. But in the end, I knew I had to go with it and listen to my heart.

For the past year, I’ve been thinking and reflecting on this project, wondering exactly how it will work so when we went to Quebec a few weeks ago, I dared speak of my project in front of a few people and it was well received. On our way home, I decided that it was time to get to work even if it isn’t all clear to me just yet.

I’m starting to see the light!

That being said, I’ve been working on a plan over the past two weeks and am looking forward to the summer to really get to work.

“Allow your passion to become your purpose, and it will one day become your profession.”   Gabrielle Bernstein

Am I scared? Yes. Am I excited? Yes! Will it work? I don’t know! But if I don’t try, then I’ll never know. So if you see me at the Starbucks down the street this summer, you know I’ll be living my passion bit by bit. I can only wish the same for you 💜

Do you have a passion that you believe is your purpose? Do you feel like there’s something bigger on the horizon? What’s holding you back?
