What you admire is a clue to your passion. It’s especially helpful to notice what blew you away when you were really young? Your passion is embedded there. I loved reading, listening to music, being out in the woods with my dogs, swimming, skating, being quiet by myself, and playing games like tag and soccer with friends at school. I loved recess.
