When I was young, I wanted to be a fashion designer or a painter but it was not economically practical. I came from a family with a meager income and as much as my mom and dad wanted to support me with this career, they couldn’t. I have to sacrifice my dreams and choose another path.
And so… I pursue accounting in hopes that if I will have my own earnings, I could now pursue this so-called passions… But life isn’t like that… As I grow older, my preferences, priorities, and passions change and it came to the point that I didn’t know what I want in life. I was lost in the middle of the jungle of adulthood that I forgot to be happy.
Because passion is not just pursuing your dream career, it is about chasing whatever that makes you really happy in life, be it on top of the corporate world, travel the whole world, or having a family of your own. As I pondered upon with my life, I realized that being an artist is not enough for me to be happy and be satisfied. There is something greater, something true, something worth it…
And so, the question now is not how to pursue my passion but rather, what is my passion?
