You Don’t Necessarily Find Your Passion, Passions Find You.

This guest post is from Jordan Meyers. She is preparing to enter her freshman year of high school in the Hilliard City School District in Hilliard, OH. A student who leads by example, she is not only an avid writer, but also a musician and theater student. Jordan is an outstanding individual in all aspects of her day. Here are her words:

One’s passion is a wondrous thing, meant to be explored and dreamt about, meant to be loved and pursued. You don’t necessarily find your passion, passions find you. One of my passions is writing. I’m writing about writing!
Okay, so maybe I don’t mean grocery lists or something, I don’t like scribbling down things we do not possess. I mean creative writing. Some people don’t like it. They don’t like the idea of work. If you love what you are doing though, you don’t consider it work.
During class, the teacher may state, “Now to do something other than essays, creative writing!”

Groans will leak from many of the student’s mouths. I just grin and get excited.

To me, writing lets me unleash my inner imagination that is trapped between the walls of my brain, and lets it soar onto the paper, letting a pencil be it’s transportation.

Writers block is no fun, when a solid barrier forms between your pencil and your imagination, not letting anything penetrate it to write a story. Now that’s annoying. However, on good days, nothing stands in the way. I will hit the ‘play’ button, watch the movie inside my mind, and let the pencil do the work! It’s fun to capture emotions within a little stroke of a word, and let stories of love, adventure, and suspense unfold. 

I plan on writing for the rest of my life, and I hope other people will find the joy that I have found in writing.
