Childhood MemoriesThink back to your childhood and try to recall what made you happy. Think about how you felt back then and allow those feelings to resurface. Maybe you get a warm, funny feeling inside. You may feel a new surge of energy. See where this takes you on your journey to explore new things. If that same energy and feeling remains after exploring your new interest, then you probably found your answer.
Adult InterestsMaybe something sparked your interest later on in your adult life that you wish you could continue to pursue. The good news is that it doesn't have to turn into a full time job. It could be a hobby, a volunteer opportunity, or a side business. Find ways to incorporate what you love into your schedule.
Try Something NewTry something you've never done before. I remember spending time with my daughter at a painting event. I don't consider myself to be artistic, nor have I ever taken a painting class. I was willing to give something new a try. We attended an event at Pinot's Palette and was pleasantly surprised. I immediately felt relaxed being in an environment with other novice painters. I had to learn to be patient as the guide gave us step by step directions for creating our art piece. I had to give up feeling in control and being a perfectionist. There was no prize and there were no paintings that looked alike. The best part about the event was spending time with my daughter and coming out of my comfort zone. That day I found my balance in a painting class.
