Finding and Living Your Passions


Guest blog by Molly from

How happy are you in the place where you are at right now? Are you following your passions?

Passion is defined by as:  Any powerful or compelling emotion or feeling, as love or hate.

Something has been brewing in my soul the last several months.  Maybe it was just hormones gone mad after being pregnant with my last child.  I would like to think it was God yelling at me. Regardless, I stopped and evaluated where I was in life.

When given the opportunity to take a pause and re-evaluate where you are in life, do it.

Julia Child said: Find something you are passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.

So what am I passionate about?

My love for my family has always been present, but I never had quality time to spend with them. Working 50+ hours outside of the home and traveling was no longer an option, after our fourth child was born. My kids and husband needed me. I needed them. It took maternity leave and not working to realize how important family was.  That compelling feeling and emotion of needing them was slapping me in the face.


I am amazed at how everything we do in this world is changed by the new creations and evolution of technology, especially in regards to parenting.  How we raise our kids in regards to safety, manners and education – is completely a shift from how our parents raised us.

Blogging is something I took up as a hobby years ago. It gradually and inadvertently started earning me an income. With a full-time job and large family blogging for a living was never something I could pursue. I’ve never considered myself a writer, but a blogger – I’ll accept that title!

By taking my passions of family, technology and blogging – I have been able to establish a career as a Blogger.  Living each day happy and the stress is good stress because I am doing what I love.
