How did you discover your passion?

I've been searching - in a slightly obsessive way- for something that would spark that fire within. What is your passion? How old were you when you discovered it? Was it accidental or while searching for it?

Thank you for your answers.

    Mar 11 2013: People often try to find their passions in positives. However, often our passions arise from dire straits or sincere need...or tragedy. For example, my son's illness and developmental delays have motivated me to start developing tools and resources for other parents going through similar experiences.

    So, when you're asking what you're passionate about, look outside the positive. Look for something negative you'd like to turn into a positive.
