julia child quote

What is your passion? How do you invest your time in it?

How true those words are. In 2010, I had just switched my degree from Biology to Nutrition and realized, “What am I doing with my life?” Three years later I still find myself asking myself that. These words now dangle over my desk at home and whenever I find myself questioning what I’m doing with my career, I take solace in Julia’s sentiments.

Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it. – Julia Child

Julia Child was relentless when it came to her work in the kitchen. Watching videos of Julia and reading her cookbooks it becomes clear how passionate she was. Nothing and no one could stop her. And that is something we should all live by, especially when it comes to our workk. Be passionate, stay interested. Don’t let anything or anyone stop you from pursuing your dream.
