As always, its Sunday and I’m knee-deep in my feelings.
Well, in my mind.
I’m always wondering what it is that people are passionate about. I remember when I was a kid, I was passionate about music and movies, to a fault. I used to watch movies and wait until the end to see who wrote the screenplays, who did the casting and who directed the film. My thing was writing and weaving stories together, using our giant video camera to film my toys and then recording voice overs. I was an innocent kid, wanting to be a film director and write for shows like In Living color and Fresh Prince. i wanted to man the camera and tell everyone what to do, being the oldest of 5, that’s right up my alley. That’s what I did in my spare time. Before high school. Before shit got real.
Where did it all go? That passion for the arts. That zeal I had for writing, editing and production. I often wonder why I changed my mind, and what I’ll have to do to get it back. I decided a while back that pursuing my dreams was hazardous and I needed something concrete, something that would pay the bills, which is why I study education and sociology. Its safe. There’s always a need for teachers and social workers. However, where I am today isn’t exactly where I thought I’d be. Being 3 months into 2013, I’m wondering if this is the year I actually take a chance.
It’s not that I’m not passionate about education or social reform, because I am. It’s just that at 23 1/2 I figured I’d get into that once I was a little older. But right now, it’s about me going full force and taking risks. I feel like the last 23 years have been so safe and predictable.
What will 2013 hold?
So, what are you passionate about? What is it that you want to do but haven’t done? Is it money, is it time, family? Maybe you’re sensitive about your age or afraid of failure. There’s no law saying you have to achieve your dreams or pursue your passion at any particular age or that you’re a coward for being afraid to fall on your face. We all are. Everyone is.
So, what’s it going to take for us to jump in with both feet?
