Wise Words.

I have always been inspired by articles and books and speeches and quotes that talk about following your passion. It might be ideal for most people, but those who do not believe in the passion route are those who gave up too soon. They couldn't testify and they can't agree with the idea of following your passion because they ended up doing things that they are not passionate about. Maybe call it cynicism or jealousy, whatever it is... I still believe in following what you are passionate about.

And I can truly testify, once you find your place it will be the best feeling in the world. 
Probably close to feeling in love or probably better than feeling in love, because all you will feel is euphoria. 

"There’s a common misconception that work is necessary. You will meet people working at miserable jobs. They tell you they are “making a living”. No, they’re not. They’re dying, frittering away their fast-extinguishing lives doing things which are, at best, meaningless and, at worst, harmful."

Source: Don't work. Avoid telling the truth. Be hated. Love someone.

Know your passion and follow it. You never have to work for the rest of your life.

“So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.” 
- Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom

"Lots of people, of course, dream of chucking their current job for something else. But dreaming is all they do. They then wait for the fates to hand them the perfect job.

It won't work, though, because they aren't out shaking the trees. In fact, they're not even in the orchard. They're effectively waiting for the fruit to fall on its own -- and for a brisk wind to blow the fruit across the fields and over the fence and to place it gently in their lap."

I am actually proud to say that I have found my purpose. 
It happens. It is real. You just have to trust yourself and be patient.
Of course, you also have to work for it, you have to shake trees and most importantly don't give up.
