The Effort It Takes.

One of the greatest joys in life is to be able to follow your passion and get to do it every single day. The amount of happiness and peace that writing or sketching gives me is unparalleled and I love the way people’s passions often work as an outlet for their emotions. It’s funny how all of it is brushed aside by a lot of people because it is said to bring ‘no real value’ to anybody’s lives, but the first thing everybody turns to after a hard day is usually some form of art. Crazy how that works, right?

And now that a lot of people are stuck home with not a lot of ways out, I see everybody coming up with their own go-to outlets for their emotions. I see my friends cooking, or baking, writing a lot more than they usually would, painting the walls in their rooms, starting their own blogs or YouTube channels, finding random little things within their own homes to take photos ofโ€” just turning to things that make them happy, and it’s so heartwarming to see how doing things that help us channel our emotions feels like being swaddled in a blanket on a cold day.

People say that it’s a good thing to break out of your comfort zone, and I agree. In most cases, this is true. But when you follow your passion, you’re already breaking out of a bunch of comfort zones because unfortunately, it’s not always the easiest thing to do. Instead, the one thing that we love doing ends up becoming our comfort zone. It ends up becoming that one thing that can feel like a mug of hot chocolate on a rainy evening. It might feel like I’m exaggerating right now because I clearly get to do this on a daily basis, but I can promise you that this is exactly what I need to clear my head on most days.

There’s always that one thing we all want to go back to at the end of the day to feel better. There really aren’t any words to properly explain what doing what you love makes you feel. It’s something that feels as natural as breathing air. It feels like home. That’s the best way I can put it. I know that some people find their love for certain things a lot later than others, but the truth is that there really isn’t a ‘right time’. The right time is whenever you decide to go follow your heart and let it take you wherever it is headed.

If you end up finding that one thing for yourself, I hope that you are brave enough to fight for it. It’s one of the best things you’d be doing for yourself. The world outside will always try to throw its opinions at you because everyone thinks they are somehow entitled to make rude and unsolicited comments about people’s lives. If that happens, I hope you don’t let it get to you. I’m not saying it’s for everybody, but I know that if you want something badly enough, you’ll make an effort to keep it in your life.

Think about what drives you!

  1. Great post Shubs. The saying – “who feels it, knows it,” rings true in this instance. The positive thing to come from this period of lockdown for me has been to pursue further my passion of writing and reading! Not only has It been great to write, blog but to also read other like-minded bloggers work. I could sense the passion and enthusiasm emanating from you just through the words you penned in this post and I wish for you, I and all other bloggers with the same passion that this moment of pursuing our art and creativity will long continue! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ‘Š๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ’Ÿ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™Œ

    1. Thank you so much!
      People like us, who are emotionally driven towards following their passions are always on a different plane of reality. There’s always something going on. And that’s why I think that it is important for more people to discover what they truly like. It gives a different and a lot deeper meaning to life.
      Hope you’re having a great day, Darell! Xx
