This “Week of Passion” started after watching a speech Elizabeth Gilbert gave with the suggestion of not living a life of passion but instead to be willing to flit among your various interests. Her message is more complex than that, yet I think my summary is adequate for my present purpose here.
When I was 10 the idea of being 21 thrilled me. Why? Because then I could drink and vote. That would be perfection.
Curiosity has given me so much in life. Without that unbounding curiosity I’d know and feel so much less. Treasures abound with a curiosity-filled life.
I’m passionate about food. I’m especially passionate about eating healthy, organic food. That passion hopefully overcomes the passion for sugar and junk food I seem to have. I’ve gotten to the point that if I really like a food, I figure it must have sugar in it — and I’m usually right. 🙂
Following your passion is the common advice given to people to help them on their path to success and happiness. I wonder, and hear others wonder, “How do you do that?” because I don’t always know which zeal to use on my path to accomplishment and satisfaction. You may have that same question or concern.
