Each person has been created for a purpose. The trick is uncovering that purpose. I tell others (and try to follow myself) that if you will discover your true passion it will lead to your purpose.
Writing is my gift but sharing good, positive and uplifting thoughts that will encourage others and help others encourage even more people is where my passion lies. My nature cries out for positive influences and excitement grows when I have the opportunity to share.
The last couple of years have been spent building up a freelance writing career that has consisted mainly of ghost writing opportunities. Few, if any, of my articles have been around my passion. These different gigs have provided me with research knowledge, writing skills and internet experience that I probably would not have gotten any other way. But I am beginning to question if my focus is off.

My husband asked me how writing about dentists fulfilled my purpose and pursued my passion. It made me start thinking and sometimes that can be a dangerous journey. The truth is that I write the dentist content and other types of content for the paycheck. We all have to make a living after all. But if I pursued my own passion by writing for my blogs and my eBooks and creating manuscripts for magazines and developing proposals for books then maybe the income would follow the passion.

I know in my heart that it is true. When I put my heart in to doing what I know to do and I am consistent in my doing then the results show up. My focus has been on the dollar sign. It is time to make the words the focus instead.
