Looking for my passion to make it my job

“Don’t let life randomly kick you into the adult you don’t want to become.” ~Chris Hadfield, astronaut

Lately I have been thinking a lot about what I really want to do. 
I was born in 1979 in Spain, my grandparents lived war times and my parents a dictatorial regime. I was tought that I have to study what gives me a job to have money and be able to have a home and a family without starving. 
I did what they told me, among all the things that I could like I chose the one that could give me more job opportunities. I liked it and I had great jobs, big money and I travelled around the world but I was not feeling fulfilled. 
For me, it was not difficult to change my job, despite my family always said that I had to make an effort and work always for the same company. The most difficult thing has been to say no to all the knowledge my family wanted me to transmit, always for my good, and be able to see that I just wanted to do something else. This is the big step I took, it was more an emotional problem than a practical one. 
Now I'm trying to get rid of all these familiar patterns that I acquired and discover what I am really passionate about and what I want to do next. Let's see where this process leads me...
