What are your passions?

A while ago, a wise person said to me that everyone needs to have five things they are passionate about. I never really thought much about it or sat down to consider mine, until recently when we were told to write them down for a course I was doing.

It took a little while, a few scribblings on the page, but I managed to come up with 4 passions, the 4 things I do that give me great joy. Number 5 I'm still narrowing down!

They aren't in any particular order, but here they are:

1. Being mama to Miss TikiBoo. That goes without saying really.

2. Travelling. Near or far, I love exploring new places and rediscovering old. In particular Paris and France, which could almost be listed as a passion in it's own right, but we're sticking to 5!

3. My home - living here, decorating, making it a place we love to spend time. Inside and out, furnishing it, gardening, I love this place.

4. Finding beauty - looking at the world through a camera lens, sewing a beautiful dress, restoring a piece of once ugly furniture. Creating a garden from bare earth. There is beauty all around us in everyday things. I want to find it.

I'll explore these further soon, but in the meantime there are links to the side, the ones that look like strips of masking tape, which take you to posts labeled with these themes, as these four things are really what my blog is all about!

Can you name 4 or 5 things in your life that you're truly passionate about?

If you have stopped by, it would be lovely if you could leave a comment or just say hello so I know that you've been here. Thank you!


  1. Morning Kathryn, as I read through your list, I ticked them all plus I would have to add, of course, health and fitness - eating healthy, living healthy, staying fit, nuturing ourselves. All off the top of my head, im sure ill be thinking of more all day!x

  2. Hi Kathryn, My list would be identical to yours.
    Family, travel, home and enjoying the beauty of life.
    Enjoy today!

  3. Kathryn, we have 3 things in common... travelling, home and sewing! I would also add my work, fitness, cooking and blogging! Hope you have a lovely day x

  4. Home, family, health, creating, learning. I would love to add travel to that but I haven't really had the chance to travel much.

  5. Wonderful list! It's so hard to narrow it down to five, isn't it? Hmmm... Family, home, photography, writing...and maybe travel too. Wish I could do more of it though. I'll have to think a bit on #5 as well!

  6. No surprises but my list is exactly the same as yours but adding Italy particularly Tuscany, writing, learning and sharing knowledge and having gratitude for all the small things. Love that lavender photo and your front garden is coming along beautifully. melx

  7. Hi Kathryn

    A great and heart warming of sharing - thank you.
    Yes I definitely agree with you and you can tell a mile off what a beautiful soul you are.

    I wonder if I have too many passions and loves - I might need an edit and narrow down - or then again, maybe they are fine the way they are :)

    have a wonderful day

  8. Yes you do need to be passionate about something. Like you, I love being a mum, travelling and my home. I really should get passionate about exercise. I'll have to work on that one.
    Cheers Kylie
