How I Discovered My Passion When I Was Bored At Home?
My journey to discovering my passion was long. I was at home, with way too much time on my hands. I tried many things but nothing made me excited. Until one day I found a platform that allowed me to be gently guided towards my passion.
All I new at first is that I had a lot to say, many opinions that I wanted to express, and I kind of wanted to be of service to other people.
That ‘s all I knew at that point.
What the heck can you do with that?

I know what you are thinking.
This is going to be another review designed to get people to sign up.
WRONG, this is a story of how by trying many different things I finally found that one thing that allowed me to feel complete again.
Being home for a while, without a job, was really getting to me. Of course, I looked for jobs every day, but that still left me with a lot of free time which I spent many on dwelling on my misfortunes.
I first joined Wealthy Affiliates because it was free. I figured I had absolutely nothing to lose. At first, I could not even picture where this was going. I wasn’t even thinking in terms of getting any profits from it. What I really enjoyed is how the training guided me to create my own website and publish high quality content.
Can you believe it?
Building my own website?
Well, I couldn’t believe it either, but I did, and it’s amazing.
The Surprising Benefits

I could list a million benefits here. Everything from amazing, easy to follow training to very supportive and encouraging community, but for me, the best benefits were somewhat different
After a year without a job I felt useless and like I was not contributing anything to society. Creating the website, with the intend to help people like me, people that feel the same way as me, was the best feeling ever. I felt great, excited, accomplished, helpful, a creator. No amount of money would be able to buy those feelings for me. I also enjoyed the following:
- to feel the joy of being a part of a community again
- the joy of creating new and exciting things
- the sense of helping people in need
- being able to express my feelings, beliefs, views
In conclusion, to answer the question, what to do when you’re bored at home?
Find your passion!!!
I found mine and utilized it at Wealthy Affiliate platform.
Don’t be afraid to try new things. Don’t feel intimidated when you at first don’t know something, learning new things is a great feeling.
Follow your instincts. If something triggers your interest, hold on to that, do not let it slip away until you give it a good try.
Too many people have amazing ideas and they let them slip away by not exploring the.
