What it is to be passionate

I am a girl who is passionate about many things. Many of my coworkers and friends may notice that I’m extremely passionate about what I do on the daily (in the Internet Marketing industry), but it’s not known that I have a bazillion other interests. Nobody really, truly knows that much about me, except the people closest to me, and for everyone else- what I show on the surface.

I can talk about science for hours. Quantum physics. Anything. I marvel at the mysteries of the universe everyday, so much that I even have a stack of New Scientists magazines on my shelf from my subscription. That’s how much I love science. Are you new here? I bet you didn’t know that.

My other passion is horses, and equestrian sports. Yes, I’ve been riding since I could walk, and yes, I’ve owned horses and ex race horses. Nothing matches the feeling of galloping straight at a 4 foot jump, and the moment when you’re suspended in air over it, on a 1000+ pound animal. They are my other, OTHER passion. You don’t want to get me started on that. You probably feel REALLY new here, now. I also love film and acting. I won’t go on and on. Point being- I have a lot of interests.

I am also extremely passionate about my career, and working hard. I am somewhat of a workaholic (which isn’t a bad asset… most of the time). Coming from the finance and business field, I never thought I would eventually get to turn my passion, love and hobby for marketing, blogging, social media and branding into an career. Stepping into my job at BlueGlass from day to day isn’t like a job at all. Coming home, I find myself working anyway, even after I leave the office. My job isn’t a job. My job is FUN.

I’m probably one of those really annoying passionate people. Meaning, when I love something and I’m really die hard into it, I think that everyone else loves it too. This isn’t always the case, but I fail to see it because I’m just enjoying what I’m doing so much. Sometimes you might have to smack some sense into me, especially when I get really hooked on an idea and want to execute it. I can have tunnel vision. I’m hoping that’s an endearing asset. Otherwise, I’m screwed. :)

When I was doing SEO and link building, I loved it. It’s all analytical and number oriented. I live for that stuff. But being on the Online PR side- I’m learning so much and leveraging my true talents. Not to mention, the partners at BlueGlass are extremely hands on. I’m really learning the best from the best, and I feel very lucky for that.

This is a turning point in time for so many companies and brands- a new social landscape has been emerging and to be able to get my hands in and run with it is simply amazing.

So what is passion? Passion is an uncontrollable love for something that can be felt by everyone around  you, whether you realize it or not. Passion is what I feel about life, this very minute. For that, I am happy :) You can smack me if my passion turns annoying at any minute. I promise I can’t hurt a fly.

PS: total lie. I’ll break it out black belt style :)

    It's interesting- my perspective gives me the chance to watch you accept the challenges you put infront of yourself. Most of the people I know who are good at everything, don't have one particular thing that the are the best at. It amazes me to watch you and hear about your sister and know that the both of you become the very best at what you do. I struggle to be “good” at a handful of things while you conquer everything in your sights.

    Passion is something that can take one to heights. But I really want to say “Disqus is really irritating :(“
