Knitting Your Passion

Follow Your Passion has become a household phrase...I see it everywhere.  Follow Your Passion - Passion Conferences - How to Follow Your Passion - The Passion Test - Rightsizing Your Passion.  The list goes on and on...

I have had several people say to me "I can't quit my job to follow my passion!"  I say "You don't have to quit your job."  You can still do those things that you love to do.  It's not about how much money we can make.  It's about reaching our community with our time and talents.  It's about what you do with that passion.  You can make a difference in the lives of people around you with your passions.

I have a friend who is a nurse in San Francisco.  Her passion is knitting.  She makes beautiful things with a ball of yarn and two needles.  It's her passion but she can't quit her nursing career to sit and knit.  She decided to take her passion of knitting and share that talent with the local homeless shelter.  She holds a class  on Tuesday evenings teaching those in the shelter how to knit.  She has done amazing work in the lives of some "just sitting and knitting" with a group of people every Tuesday evening.

So - What's Your Passion?  How are you reaching the community around you?  Find a way to Follow Your Passion and share it with others around you...

Follow Your Passion
