Are you passionate about your work?

I have been trying to figure out what I want to do for a very, very long time, and now I think I found it; I want to serve. I want to help people feel good by helping them grow spiritually and so I created this website, and I have begun writing a book. Both of these things scared me terribly when I started. Now I just have to get people to read what I write and the books I review. Should be a piece of cake, don’t you think? How about you, are you passionate about your job?

Another passion

The other thing I do, and am very passionate about, is intuitive healing. Mostly remote intuitive healing. It is not that easy to get clients for that either, but I’m working hard on it because it is so rewarding and I love it when clients tell me how much better they feel after our sessions.

Trying different things

I have worked with a slew of different things in my life but mostly in officework for the last twenty years or so, and although I have had good jobs it has never been what I wanted to do and I have gotten bored within just a short time. I don’t mind doing those things, but they do not make me feel alive and I didn’t get up in the morning feeling like I lived my dream life. I want to help people feel good physically and spiritually, and stacking papers is not going to do the trick.

Passion is key!

I think that working a job you are not passionate about and which doesn’t make you happy, numbs you and steals a huge part of your life. I see so many people go to their jobs looking like puppets day after day, and the only time they really live is on the weekends and when they are on vacation. Sure they make money, but do they actually live? Is it really living when you dread Monday mornings and can’t wait until it’s Friday again?

Loving your job is important

Of course I know that we can’t always love everything we do, but shouldn’t such a large part of our life be enjoyable? Are we not supposed to strive to find a job we love doing?

When you do something you are passionate about it actually doesn’t even feel like work; it’s like playing! Although writing can be quite hard and it’s not that easy to come up with a new topic or figure out what to write, it is always fun in the end, and then when I see that people are reading my texts and commenting? I love it!

Mindfulness can help

If what you do doesn’t make you happy, you should try to find something else, but if that doesn’t work there is actually something you can do: you can change what you think! It’s not that easy, but it works; focusing on the parts of your job that are good and doing mindfulness training while you work can make almost any job a lot more fun. Doing your job in a mindful manner is a good way to find more passion and if you work like that you can give yourself a chance to feel better while work on finding something that you are really passionate about.

  1. Hello Kristina, love this post. This is something I’ve been thinking of for a long time. Am I where I really want to be? What do I want to do? What would make me happy and give my energy?

    This last few months I picked up a hobby of mine. I’ve started to write again – and I’m so much happier. If an hour of writing can make me so happy – what if I could work fulltime with it? Sometimes I get stuck with the question “How can I be a fulltime writer”, then I remind myself that I’ll figure it out. Right now I just have to continue writing. When it’s time I’ll get an idea or meet someone who will give me the next step.

    1. Hi Marie! So glad you like the post 🙂 I have been struggling with the same questions for such a long time. There is so much you are ‘supposed’ to do, and you are definitely supposed to work without questioning why you do it.
      I wanted to become a writer when I was a kid, but I suppressed that growing up for some reason, and now I write again and I’m loving it! If you stick to your dream you will find a way, I’ sure of it!
      Wishing you lots and lots of success and happiness with your writing,
