The Passion within

If you are someone for whom, your lifelong passion and profession are same, may be you don’t need to read this blog. Then, you are one of those very few unique people in this world.

But for most of us, our passion which could easily be a perfect reality often turns in to an untouchable dream.

Few years back, It was an voting day in the town and my school was converted into a voting booth.

A place where we learned to form our opinion and spent 10 years to find ourselves wearing a common uniform, today it was in a different attire and was seeking our opinion to form a better society.

After completing school also, we were given an opportunity to decide about our future profession, mostly it’s the 1st time when we get the opportunity to cast our 1st vote, our 1st big opinion of life for deciding our profession.

Our 1st vote intended towards, forming better future, but most likely our vote generally loses it’s power after the formality of voting is done.

Our life and Society generally walks on the path of so called reality just after the day of Voting. Most of us choose what is practical than what is our passion within and become part of day to day routine soon.

This is obvious because, not all passions can be turned in to an money making profession and for a better life in society, importance of money was never a debatable topic.

On the way back home, I just happened look back towards my school, hoping to experience some glimpse of those days, days I would love to live again and again

To my surprise I bumped in to a classmate, who also visited school after a long time. During school days, Sachin was not really a very close friend as much as I felt after meeting him that very moment of reunion.

We had no ideas about each others whereabouts and we had much more to talk with very less time in hand as we both had to join our duties at work in second half of the day. Life gets enough opportunities to keep pushing us back towards reality.

Sachin and I had one thing in common during school days. We both were good in painting and someday we wanted to become painters.

Today, I am an Interior designer working in a corporate company and Sachin is working in a bank.
To my surprise, he was really happy to find out that I was in this profession, because my profession is obviously more closer to art than working in a bank.

He immediately confirmed his happiness with slightly sad note : ” Oh Man, I am really happy that you choose this profession. At least, you are doing what you love! I haven’t held a pencil and a paper in years to draw something. Overall life is good, I like my work but I wish, I could draw something everyday “.

Knowing the practicality of my own profession with reference to doing what I love and seeing someone appreciating something that I have done ‘after a long time’, I was in two minds on how to respond to that happy and equally sad reaction of a childhood friend.

Somehow, I was able to strike some balance and I unknowingly responded –” but, do we really need to be in some profession to follow our passion? Don’t you think our passion is more personal and special than what we do to earn money? Do we really have to look at our passion as the source of income than looking at it as the source of positivity in life ? What if your profession doesn’t require your creativity, Why don’t you spend some time sketching? At least once a week or month? “

He smiled ” I will try, I will definitely try”.

We reached a junction, from where our roads were different again. We exchanged our phone numbers and promised to catch up sometime soon over a cup coffee and drawing book.

Till date, we could never meet and draw together but that day what I said in response to him was an eye opener for myself too. It changed the way, I pursue my life.

Sometimes, when you let life unfold on its own and respond to a situation by keeping your opinions honest, life gives you a better tomorrow. It has her own way of teaching, it is true that we continue learning through out the life after school.

Taking advantage of voting day, I dropped in to an art shop before reaching office. From that day, I decided to pursue my passion, I decided to draw without being worried about what others want to see or if I will get paid for it or not.

I learned an important lesson that day, earning money is essential but life is much larger than just money, ultimately money is a tool created by humans for utility, living life gracefully is a better option than just surviving !

I think, we should stop relating our passion with our profession in order to pursue our talents, we should live at least some time for our passion.

Today, if I was able to remind you of your forgotten passion, a inborn talent, something which is hidden deep inside you and you would love to turn it in to your profession, its not too late.

Take at least 1 hour a week and start pursuing your passion for fun, you deserve it because not everyone is born with the talent you have and who knows! It might turn in to a profession someday!

Be hopeful, be passionate!

    That’s very true Rohit. It happens with almost 75% of people but I found myself following passion into profession ! Whichever way; one should enjoy the journey that has to pass though our life but not forgetting the inner passion to execute before The End !
