What are you passionate about?

"Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion"-Hebbel

I am always stumped when I run into people without a passion, a true passion...a zeal (or is it zest) for life. I love life and am passionate about most things. I want to do it all...I want to be passionate about exercise, about traveling, reading, decorating my home, gardening, being a better friend, wife, many things to do, so little time!  I want to be a photographer, refinish furniture, make my own candle line, write a when I run into someone that just hangs around and cleans and says " I don't have any time to do things I'm interested in", I want to shake them and say "LIVE LIFE" make a difference, do something you only get one chance at this life. TRY many things till you find that one thing you are passionate about..Believe me, I've tried a bunch of things till this whole art thing blossomed...I did design work, came up with a girl's clothing line(Meg had an entire wardrobe when she was 3 that was designed by myself!), worked on a stationery line, a cupcake business,  tried writing and illustrating a children's book.I tried and tried! I was passionate about those ideas but it wasn't my time yet? Not sure, but it has prepared me for where I am today. All of those ideas has helped me along the way. But my point is, is that I am passionate about life and I do try new things, new foods, make new friends. Every day is a new day and that is a gift. This passion I have for my art is unreal...there are too many ideas swirling in my head..I can't make it fast enough( this must be how an author is when writing a book, where they are locked in a room just typing away on their computer!) Anyways, until next time, try something just might get passionate about it!

  1. I love this. Sometimes we have to "calm the storm" in our minds to focus on the things we truly want to do. Thanks for the reminder!
