I typically call my Passion Statement my essence. My essence is the portrayal of an intrinsic quality of myself, which is being a storyteller. I love telling stories, talking about stories, and observing stories in all types of fashions. I see the notion of a person’s reputation as the summary or the blurb of their story expressed by others.
This statement has given me a sense of peace since I wrote it in 2018, because it helped me focus my aspirations. I’m naturally curious about many things in life, which resulted in being proficient and liking many different disciplines. That may seem like it’s such a great gift, and it is, but for me, it was quite overwhelming, especially when deciding on a career path. It’s a problem when your view on some of your gifts becomes warped, and you view them as a curse, because they bring you unwanted anxieties and complexities.
However, being able to reflect on who I am, first relationship with God and Christ, as well as in who I want to become. I’ve come to a solution to simplify my passions to something that permeates all aspects of my curiosities. That being a storyteller. I’m living my own unique story, but it’s also cool to be a supporting character or to make a cameo in other people’s unique stories.
