Does everyone have a passion? One particular interest that provokes intense feelings and takes over your mind like no other subject can.
I’m sure they can and do, but I feel kind of fickle in that regard. Until recently, I had convinced myself that photography was my passion. It’s certainly an activity that I take a great deal of enjoyment from, but on the other hand, I don’t live for it. I don’t miss it that much when I don’t pick up my camera for a few days or even a week.
Now that I’ve got my new road bike, cycling is becoming a massive part of my life. When I see cycling on TV, the desire to jump on my bike and ride is tough to ignore.
The fact that when I’m not riding my bike, I’m often thinking about doing so, just makes me feel that perhaps I was just convincing myself that photography was my passion because I knew that it was a job I would rather do over many others.
Of course, I would be happy doing it for a job whether it’s my passion or not as I still enjoy it very much, but it makes me question myself more and more.
I don’t know if even cycling is my passion, whether it’s motor racing, something I’ve yet to discover or maybe even nothing at all.
I wonder what percentage of people really have a passion and what the most common ones are.
