If you’re someone who’s struggling to articulate your “passion”, here are three questions that might guide you in creating more meaning in your life:
- What are your values?
- What are you curious about?
- What past experiences have shaped you, that you can now use as fuel for serving others?
Whether [a person]* tries to enter into a dislocated world, relate to a convulsive generation, or speak to a dying [person], [their] service will not be perceived as authentic unless it comes from a heart wounded by the suffering about which [they] speak.” — Henri Nouwen, from The Wounded Healer.
