Pursuing Your Passions
"All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." ~Walt Disney
Nothing is more self rewarding than pursuing your passions in life. No matter what happens in life, if I am doing what I love, I will always be happy. I try to carry this motto with me wherever I go. There are many things one must do unwillingly; these things and tasks are simply brought on by an uncontrollable force. These challenges must be tackled with effort and compassion, and an open mind in order to make the most out of the circumstances. But when there is an opportunity for doing what you love; take on the opportunity, because you will almost always be rewarded in the end. There are things that I must do even if I do not want to. Wether this be: doing a homework assignment, a chore at home, or playing a game that I do not like; there are limitless things that I do not enjoy which I am faced with doing in my daily life. Sometimes, I do not have enough time in my day for doing something that I love doing, but I always try to keep an open mind when I am doing things I am unfamiliar with, or dislike. When I am granted time to do what I love, wether it is: reading, sometimes writing, helping out, being with friends and family, or playing a sport; I take this opportunity, because I always enjoy it. There is one time in specific where I chose to pursue one of the activities I love doing, which is helping others. On multiple occasions two summers ago, I had no plans for my day. No obligations, just one on one time with myself to do just about whatever I desired. This could have been sitting on the couch all day and being lazy, but instead, I chose to go to my sisters hockey practice and help instruct the little kids. I love playing hockey, and it was an amazing experience to pass on my knowledge of the game to kids who were starting to play my beloved game. Volunteering my time like this has become one of my passions in life. Assisting others through something that I love to do brings limitless joy to me. I now often help out with local programs which teach children with autism how to skate. I know that offering my service in this way is joyful to those who I am directly helping, but it also brings joy to me that I know I have made a difference. For me, doing the things that I love is my favorite thing in life. I encourage more people to peruse what they love in their lives.
