Passion. It's one of our four values at Home of Eve. And probably the most important one. The definition: "A strong and barely controllable emotion."
We're all passionate about something. It can be family, love, work, a cause. It's a internal drive we have to strive after something we feel compelled to do. It's bigger than ourselves. We all express it differently.
As a designer and illustrator I feel a strong passion for creating. It makes my heart race faster than a Ferrari when I know that I'm creating something very special and of course it's whats lead me to start Home of Eve.
What's amazing about the feeling of passion is that it usually starts early. Kids clearly show their personality quite clear and I knew in a very young age that I loved to draw and write stories. So whatever I wanted to or not, I was bound to end up working in creatives. There are times I wish I could do something more simple, haha, but it doesn't last for long. I love what I do, cause it is my passion. We all know that we would be happier people if we gave it a shot. Even if it's a long one.
After years working jobs I hated, believing working with jewellery and drawing should only be my hobby I felt empty. Also, I felt depressed thinking that going for that dream was impossible. With a lot of help & push from my husband, by moving to Dubai, I had a shot and I wasn't going to let it pass me by. Life is amazing that way.
It needs to be said again. Cause life without passion is barely living. Therefore, a lack of passion is fatal.
