Finding my Passion Again

Nerja Beach

Hello loves,

I'm really trying to get back into the swing of things in terms of my blog. Lately I've been feeling a bit lost in terms of work and what my long term goals are in life. I mean I think I know what they are but it's just getting there.

I've seen a lot of my friends graduating from University as Nurses and Vets and it does sometimes make me wish I went to University and do a degree at times but I know in the long run it wouldn't have been worth it as I never really knew what I wanted to do at Uni anyways.

2018 was the best year of my life personally for sure. I went some amazing trips, spent time with my family and the best part fell well and truly in love (CRINGE!!!). Work wise too was really good, I started a new job as a Test Analyst which came out of no where but it was one of the biggest challenges I had to face. The job was something I had never done before so I really was learning a whole new skill set but the challenge was defiantly what I needed. I finished 2018 on a HIGH!

2019 has been an interesting one for me, the year started off slow especially at work and I was feeling a little bit lost. I am someone who loves throwing myself into something and I love being busy. Of course I love my chilled out days doing nothing who doesn't? But most of the time I like doing something and having it to focus on.

Work really wasn't giving me that satisfaction and although we are mega busy I don't feel like I can always throw myself into it all the time. I just started really getting back into watching YouTube and reading blog posts more often and then it really made me think about starting my blog again.

I hadn't uploaded in over a year so it was really daunting to think about but once I started writing my first blog post in a year it made me think that this was my passion.

I guess what I'm trying to say is everyone's passion is different and some people are so passionate about work but other's just go in and come home again every day. I personally don't think that is a bad thing so many people don't love their job all the time but some do and I suppose we all have a passion in life whether that is our job or our hobby like an activity, a sport, photography or a blog if your like me.

If you are feeling a bit lost like I was then sit down and think about what you love and just go for it because you will really thank yourself one day. You never know your passion could turn into your dream job!

What is your passion in life?

  1. Hi Chloe! Lovely post. I totally agree that some of the best things in life come unexpectedly, like a relationship or a job opportunity. I believe it’s so important not to compare your journey to others. Keeping your mind fixed on making the most of your life and not what everyone else is doing plays a big role in overall happiness (:

    I write about how I went for my dream job here if you’re interested ✨

  2. This is a great post. I actually have a passion for my job because I work as a graphic designer (and that's what I have a degree in) at a nonprofit, so I am using my skills to contribute to the community and my coworkers and bosses are awesome. I've honestly never met any more great people in my life. It almost feels too good to be true. That said, I do get bored from time to time and wish I could be spending more time on my blog or with my husband. So not everything is perfect! I think it's important to also have other hobbies as well: in my case, it's working out, blogging, and traveling (whenever we can afford it).
