Finding my THING! What's your passion?

“Creativity is the way I share my soul with the world”

-Brene Brown

“What’s your passion?” When asked this question in the past I never really knew how to answer it, so let’s start by defining what passion is.

Passion: an intense desire or enthusiasm for something

It made me uncomfortable knowing everyone else had one but me, and since we’re being completely honest here, it scared me away from a lot of things. Take college for example, that’s the first thing they ask you. What are you passionate about? What do you like to do? Did they really have a course on sleep or a“Napping 101”just waiting for a scholar like me to enroll? So,I decided to just coast by, joined the military to buy me some time, experience life, and maybe figure out what I was passionate about. Needless to say, my passion wasn’t hiding in the middle of the freakin’ ocean. I leave the navy with a 3 year old child and a sea bag of uniforms but still no passion. 

I started working here at the radio station and quickly fell in love! Early mornings? Easy! Talking about crazy news and silly entertainment? Cake! Still, I hadn’t the slightest idea of what it meant to be passionate about something. I threw everything I had into the radio station, constantly trying to show the Big Boss I deserved to be here. Accepting every task given to me in hopes something would stick. Then they asked me to start a podcast about whatever I wanted. My heart skipped a beat!

Now what? What am I supposed to talk about? How am I supposed to categorize my podcast when I don’t have a “thing”? It wasn’t until I sat down to write this blog that I realized what I’m passionate about. I love creating new things. I love using my imagination to create something I can put my name on. Coming up with new graphics for our website makes me so happy. Brainstorming for a new podcast series every month brings me so much joy and creating an intro for each series excites TF out of me!

I love putting my name on something I created and watching people enjoy it as much as I do! Does that qualify as a passion? Creating...? It doesn’t sound like everyone else's but I’ll take it! It’s crazy after all these years to finally be able to say I have a passion, and I’ve always had one! Here’s a video of me in High School when I created Maria Tortilla and brought her to life in my Media class.
