<p>
	I hear so many people say, “But I haven’t found my true passion!”
</p><p>
<strong>
	It’s dangerous to think in terms of “passion” and “purpose” because they sound like such huge overwhelming things.
</strong>
</p><p>
	If you think love needs to look like <i>Romeo and Juliet</i>, you’ll overlook a great relationship that grows slowly.
</p><p>
	If you think you haven’t found your passion yet, you’re probably expecting it to be overwhelming.
</p><p>
	Instead, just <strong>notice what excites you and what scares you on a small moment-to-moment level</strong>.
</p><p>
	If you find yourself diving into a book about programming and playing around with it for hours, go for it!
	Dive in deeper.
	Maybe that’s your new calling.
</p><p>
	If you keep thinking about doing something big, and you find that the idea both terrifies and intrigues you, it’s probably a worthy endeavor for you.
</p><p>
	You grow by doing what excites you and what scares you.
