I once had a conversation with someone in which I explained that most people find me boring. He corrected me by saying that it's not that I'm boring, it's just that my interests lie outside of what most people are interested in. If I met someone who shared my interests, they would not find me boring. So it's a matter of perspective.
There is something that excites you, it just may be something that doesn't excite the people around you. If you take a little time to think about it you should be able to figure it out. It's that thing that causes you to become excited when you think about it. So go think about it for awhile and while you are doing that I'll just be sitting here being boring.
try all the things
I have tried many things in life.
Many things I failed.
Some things I was too scared to fail, so I didn't try them.
Other things demanded I try them so I did.
A few things I could have tried, but left alone (for now).
Rarely a thing completely left me awestruck.
Occasionally I might regret a thing.
More often than not I regretted not trying the thing.
Now I say try all the things.
Because if there is no do?
Then there is only try - until you find the thing you want to do.

To Find Passion
Lacking passion can be quite normal, and it can't be forced either. Clearly trying things other people do just isn't for you and that is okay, its what they find passion in. Passion can be as simple as taking a walk up the street and feeling the wind and sun, or as difficult as speaking up for what you believe is right. And it can be anything in between. Even if you haven't found your passion yet, doesn't mean you won't, it just means you have to go a bit farther.
Yes, passion is hard to find. But passion desires to have a personal relationship with you. Without Passion, you will feel empty having a lack of interest in life. Passion is waiting for you.
Passion: He loves you even more than his own life. He is waiting at the door of your heart. If you hear him knocking, open the door. Passion is waiting to embrace you. To live in you giving you a passion that will set you free from this lack of interest in life.
Passion: He is the light of this world; He is the prince of peace. Passion has known you before you were born. He delights in your soul and wellbeing.
Passion gives divine counsel, guides you less you stub your toe on the table in the night.
Passion is the healer of the mind, body, and soul. Passion is the King of kings, the Lord of lords.
Passion is the wellspring of life; He is your anchor in the storms of life. He is the vine of life, the water which quenches our thirst of this world, and the bread of life which leads us to the next.
Passion is the beginning and end of every story. He has written your story before the foundation of the world.
Passion is the chief cornerstone and the image of the invisible God.
Passion has visited humanity as a baby, then a man. Fully God, fully man, to set the record straight. He is Passion!
His passion has given me life everlasting! He has life everlasting for you, too.
Passion is our redeemer, our savior he is alive and wants to live in you.
Passion has overcome death. Oh, death where is your stink.
Passion in life in this world and the world to come, without passion one is doomed to live without Him forever!
Open the door of your heart and passion will live with you, guide you. Life goes from black and white to full color.
Did you say ‘really passionate’?
I applaud your interest in investigating to find the right fit.
I don’t know if you’re in the US. If so, Citizens’ Climate Lobby is organized into 587 chapters in US congressional districts. You might read info about man-made climate change. Many libraries have online books you can access in addition to actual hard copies. Learning or reading more about this may make you passionate enough to seek to inspire your elected representatives and perhaps also your community via local media. Contact info for your reps is provided, depending on where you live, so it’s easy to phone or email them. You may take ownership of an issue some consider an existential crisis.
In another way to be involved from home, Amnesty International likewise has an Urgent Action Network in the US whereby you may contact authorities via email or phone when someone’s in imminent danger of human rights violations. These could include detainees and/or prisoners. Judging by its name, it’s not active just in the US.
You can participate in these or any cause(s) that you feel you can get behind with intense sentiment. Perhaps you’d prefer helping homeless or itinerant persons. If you’ve never “worked” at soup kitchens or food pantries, those might be tasks you’d deem worthy of your time and effort. Victims of domestic abuse and/or orphans can use a hand, too. Animals that have been abandoned provide yet another opportunity. Volunteering is not easy. So I think you are on the right track by discerning an area you feel will be important enough to you to help make a difference.
Not passive but passionate.
Passion fuels a person's most deeply ingrained delusion.
Does this mean that delusion, itself, is passion,
or that we can be passionate about a world within
ourselves where we can be kings and queens?
Passion feels- to me- like heart-pounding excitement,
the kind of excitement that you feel when you're
in a heated argument that might turn physical.
Passion looks like an Olympic runner passing a
competitor with the finish line only yards away;
fervent, sweaty, and doggedly determined.
Passion sounds like the auditory throes of
honeymooners' unfettered sex or the stuttering
roar of motorbikes on a long stretch of desert road.
Thats the thing...you do what makes others happy. That is why your passion does not last, or maybe it never trully existed. Passion comes from doing something 'YOU’ love doing, and it does not feel like work, but rather like a hobby. Its normal to lack interest when it comes to others choices of interest, after all we all were made unique, with unique aspirations and pasions. You just to dig a little deeper at finding, what it is you enjoy and try it out, try out a bunch of things and stick to one that makes you want to do it everyday as best you can.
