nurture your passion…

Ò It’s all about finding and following your own passion” Well, what’s yours? From baking to beekeeping, from flamenco to floristry, we’re celebrating the things you love doing this month. Passions are something our columnist Karren Brady says you find in your heart – not your head (p21), and I agree. It’s something you love to do, whether that’s part of your job or not. Be inspired by five w&h readers on p58, who explain how they found their intriguing “pastimes”… I agree with psychology professor Angela Duckworth’s sentiments on p51 that it’s not talent we need in abundance but effort and tenacity. She refers to this as “grit”. And the good news is, you can get “grittier” by nurturing your passions! Our cover star, Sophie Raworth, is passionate about everything she does. She’s…

‘unless you follow a passion or passionately follow what you enjoy, you will have no idea who you can become’

Find a passion and life gains harmony Most people think that if they spend their life doing something they’re passionate about, everything else in their life will just click into place. It’s true that a career lasts a lifetime, and if you have a job you love, by God that improves things. But passions don’t always have to be jobs. Because passions are something you find in your heart… rather than in your head. Passions can be simple, like reading or making something. Or they can be more complicated, like learning or teaching. But mainly they are about doing. Doing whatever you want, regardless of what other people think about it and doing it with enthusiasm and energy.
