I have been asking myself this question for a few years now. I have not come up with an answer. My oldest son, his passion is music and computers. My second son, his passion is basketball and football, and my baby girl's passion is drawing and baking. Me I don't have one. I have things that i love and love to do. But i don't know if anything of them are my passion. What's your life's passion? What gets you going and makes you so happy?

My passion in life is to make people laugh, I love to lighten situations with humor. Laughter is the best medicine for the soul I have heard. Another passion I also have is working on my body, getting in shape, and being physically active. Exercising everyday makes me feel better about myself mentally and physically. Another passion I have is health and nutrition, I love to eat well, and I love to help others in eating well too.

I may not sound funny on this site, because I don't joke around. If you knew me in person Aamir you would probably think differently. Why shouldn't I be aloud to have fun and make jokes, every comedian wasn't always a comedian. Your comments are starting to get on my nerves, so maybe you should stop.

I bought a book called "The Passion Test" a couple of years ago that helped me define the things that I was passionate about. If you're searching for an answer, it's an easy read. I'm passionate about writing, travel, gardening and the beach. Once I discovered my passions, I developed short term and long term goals and I try to work on them every day. I hope that you discover yours. It makes life so much more fulfilling.

My passion in life has been acting and anything related to art. I love doing theatre, and I've enjoyed it thoroughly. And my second passion is yoga, which I enjoy too. And in both forms I love playing the role of the teacher, and share knowledge, and also of the student, always willing to receive more.

My passion is all things related to computers and i really don't get bore if someone tell me or taught me anything about computer. I love to learn about computer and its technology.Passion is the thing which give you lots of strength and easiness to understand, you can easily understand the difficulties of your passion and you really wake many nights to learn its difficulties.

I really do not know what my passion is either. All I know, is that I work hard every day of the week for my family and I am driven to have the better things in life for us.

I have several things that I am passionate about. But I think the number one thing is helping others with whatever God allows me to. Whether it is being there to listen, or helping them fight for what is right. It gives me pure joy to help others.

Hi my friend, i guess your passion is intrinsically within you, meaning, you may not notice it but you are doing it, think of seeing your child grow and become a successful individual in the future? Isn't it a passion? The passion of you loving your wife and do everything just to make your love ones happy, isn't that a passion? And writing? I see you already have 4836 responded topic and still counting, don't you think it is a passion? Anythings that you love to do can be called passion, that is for me, i don't know for others, cause we people have different beliefs, culture and personality. Anyway, if you will ask me, i have lots of passion in this world, the passion to achieve my dreams and goals in life an then after such, think of new goals to be achieved. I also have a passion in writing. I have a passion in music. I have passion in my field of work, i have passion in sharing my knowledge, i have passion in reading books, i have passion in competing on online gaming, and i have a passion to believe what for me is right and do the right things right. That is all i can share to you. Have a great day!

Hey momma! I don't really know what my life's passion is either! At least you have YOUR CHILDREN! So you do have something! I don't even have any children! I have my two sweet adorable cats and they are the love of my life, as are all animals! I like to decorate my home or anyones home who wants me too! I used to work in the medical field and loved that, but now am disabled myself so am no longing working. So, I have lots of time to do figure out what I want to do and just don't know at this point and time! I love to help other people even though I can't seem to help myself! It gives me great pleasure to help those worse off than me, even if I'm the only one that knows about! It's ok, as long as God knows!

You know what is weird is I have the same exact problem as you. It seems like everyone around me has a passion and that is the ONE thing they love and it never changes, they hone their skills because they love it so much and become great at it. Me, I am so indecisive and have a new skill/love every week. If its not an instrument its something online. I can NEVER decide what career I want for the future and still have not decided. I just want something I can be [[passionate]] about, but I dont really have a passion. Like you said, I love a lot of things, but none more than the next. This is really strange and I think about it often. I am glad you brought it up so I know that I am not the only one out there feeling this way because everyone else seems to have their "thing" under control.

i know it's weird really. i mean i love to read. i love taking care of my home and family. i love sites like mylot and others. but i don't have that passion. that one thing that i want to do rather i get paid for it or not. like my son, he loves doing his D J thing. he would do that all day every day, no matter what. i want that feeling for something.

passion in life and dreams in life are almost the same? maybe, isn't it.. i love everything i do, taking care of my family, raising my children in a Godly way..helping the needy person. im not a social worker or somebody who works for the people, im just an ordinary person. maybe thats my passion in life...

I love to write about everything. I never did think about writing until I was in college and my classmates noticed that I wrote well. I decided to pursue it and now I write for three different websites. I love music too but sometimes I have to let it set and then I can come back to it.

It seems nothing, i always think it is a pity and sorrow if someone have no any passion. But unfortunately i am the people without any passion. I try to find and establish my passion. It seems difficult for me. Somethings i like to do. but it is only a short period. Many people say one should have one passion at least, otherwise the life is not whole.

My passion is Hollywood movies from my child hood. I am a English movie buff. I am just hooked to them. Nothing will make my day better than a well conceived and made Hollywood movie like 'The Mothman Prophecies' deep, stylish and food for the thought. And I have never allowed this movie watching to come between me and my responsibilities. My business and family are the priority Number one. When I am alone after ten in the night it is me and my movies.

I was just saying the same thing to an artist friend a few hours ago. He is a really good musician and artist, he has enviable skills and talents. Many friends of mine travel and do it as much as they can. Another friend collects old games and a couple of other things and is also an artist. I would love to be able to paint and draw but I have no talent. I can cook and sew, both clothing and furnishings, I collect "stuff", I potter in the garden but I do not have a green thumb. I'm able to do many things but I'm neither skilled or passionate about any one thing.

I love reading, writing when possible and I feel that is where my passion rides. I have a daughter who stay on the computer constantly and you can't tell me beyond a shadow of a doubt that she isn't passionate about them.
