Passion is your happiness / by Hassan Reda

Hey friends, Today I want to talk about passion and how it's your non medical antidepressant. 

The reason I bring this is up is because as you know, I'm having a difficult time with depression in my life. On the other hand today, I'm finding that through passion I'm able to have a lot more control over it.

In the last few days instead of curling in my bed like always do, I started to invest that time into my passions instead. For example, earlier this week I joined the Concession Street BIA, this really was the beginning of the passion feels train. ALL ABOARD.

Personally my passions are, helping others, designing, and building my own brand and business. I have made these three things my focus in the last few days. I know it's just a few days, but for me it's a start.

Having my first meeting with the BIA last week was thrilling, I was able to hear of what's going on in my community and all the initiatives that we're taking as a team to make Concession Street the best it can be. Being a part of this small movement gave me purpose and it also shed some light into my life that there is more out there than my little depressed brain wanted me to believe.  I left the meeting feeling empowered, and appreciated.  My passion for helping was fueled and I look forward to throw a lot more fuel to the fire. 

Also for the last few days I've been working on how I'm going to seriously revamp my business and get it's name out there. That's a passion of mine. I have a few exciting things planned and I can not wait to share them with you. 

Essentially what I'm getting at, is that whatever your passion may be, don't let it just be a thought, turn it into action because your passion is your happiness and your happiness is your fuel. You deserve happiness. 

What's your passion(s)?
