”I have to thank my Grandmother for teaching us the importance of living a life filled with passion.
She was the first female African-American Superior Court Judge in her state and did NOT take no for an answer. She unapologetically pursued her passion for education and was unafraid to learn, in a time where civil rights and women’s rights were not a priority.
Think about that……..
Your passion may not always be in line with your current career, relationship, friendships, or even the status quo but this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pursue your dreams.
I believe a passionate life is directly correlated to happiness. It’s SO much easier to work with and become friends with people who are passionate about what they do. Work no longer becomes ‘work ‘ and the bonds of friendship become more solidified because we’re all being authentic.
If there is one piece of advice that I could give to anyone it would be to pursue your dreams. Take the time to find out what your passion is and focus on cultivating happiness in your life.
At the end of the day, if it makes you happy, and you’re passionate about it, then go for it!
We all deserve to smile.“
