Creative Business Dictionary: Passion

As a journalism major in college, I developed a strong affinity for words. They are deep, complex, and have the ability to convey multiple messages. Now, as a creative small business owner, many words have taken on new meanings, and I am constantly catching myself seeing the world from a different angle.

Each week, we look at a word that impacts creative businesses and share a free download to view, print, frame, ponder, or shred. We’d love to hear your stories of how these individual words have impacted your business or your life!

CBD Passion - SquareSeptember 24, 2015 – Passion

n. strong and barely controllable emotion; an intense desire or enthusiasm for something

What do you think of or react to this definition? It makes me feel excited and gives me a sense of energy. I start thinking about my passions and how excited I get about them; it makes me want to act!

Now, defining your passion may be simple, but it’s been a work in progress for me. There are lots of items, tasks, responsibilities, etc. that I love. For example, I love food. At times I would say I’m downright passionate about it! But identifying what exactly it is that I have a “barely controllable” emotion for and something that I feel a sustained sense of “intense desire” for has been tough. I love working in sports, but I love my hobby-turned-business of crafting too. So I’ve been digging deep and establishing what it is exactly that makes me passionate about life, and I’m determined to live more for that purpose.

Over the next week, I challenge you to think about your passions. Have they changed over time? Are they changing now? I think that’s natural and 100% okay! Do you have a strong sense of your passion? Are you living for that? Share your thoughts so we can commiserate or brainstorm ways to make our passions more present in our lifestyles!

Need a reminder to find time for your passion? Enjoy a free download and have a beautiful reminder wherever you go!
