Un peu, passionnément, à la folie ...

A little, passionately, madly...

A little, passionately, madly...

I have long tried to define myself. It was not easy for me to know who I was. I was never able to put my personality, my tastes, my interests in a category, a group or a little box and I mistakenly believed that was the right thing to do. I wondered for a long time who I was without really knowing where I was going.

Tonight, I had a little chat with myself (yes, yes, alone and in silence). I felt flat to have no passion. I have never been passionate about a particular subject or sport. I went horseback riding in high school, I loved it (for 5 years), but I didn't persevere...

I would like to have a hyper-developed interest in a particular thing. I admire those who race, rain or shine. I admire those who cook and create delicious meals (the time spent peeling vegetables, preparing ingredients and washing up puts me off). I wanted to become a photography pro, but it lasted 1 month (I took a few lessons and put that aside..)

And boom! I had a revelation. It's not true that nothing excites me. I don't know if you can call it a passion, but I'm passionate about projects and discoveries. I like to learn a little about everything. And above all, I like having projects, setting them up and bringing them to fruition. Well, sometimes, quite often, I have ideas and projects that don't come to fruition, but at least some do.

We learn about ourselves every day. In making this realization, I understood and accepted several things about myself. Ever since I was little, I have loved projects. I regularly left with a backpack full of bandages, wanting to save the animals in the woods behind my house.

I managed to save one once. A mouse was caught in a sewer, with my friends, we managed to get it out with a skewer. I even called the Journal de Montréal thinking they might do an article on us. I thought my act was heroic...

In short, what drives me in my life is to create, to have ideas and to bring them to fruition. That's what I did with my students when I was a teacher. I loved project-based learning. I think that's also why I like to travel. It allows me to discover, try and explore.

My company is also the result, without this need, I would never have created it. Discovering, exploring, having projects, it's my passion, my fuel!
