I am certain our passions can come back; it may not be easy but nonetheless quite doable. For a passion to be sleeping it must have been put to sleep. Sadness, disappointment, fear of waking up to life, can all be causes of our passion to go to sleep. We all go through different degree of pain in our lives, some more than others. Pain is a passion killer; but it doesn’t have to be a passion ender!
I have a great friend that often says, you must feel the pain to go through the pain. At some point in our lives, we must get past the pain and back to where we can be awake and experience joy once again.
No one, of course, can awaken your passion except yourself. So I ask, what are you going to do for yourself to awaken that passion. It’s easy to fall into a rut after living in pain or doom and gloom for so long. Remember, that something wonderful can be around the corner. It’s time we call it into our lives and not sit back and wait for it to come to us. To know your passion clearly is the first step, it’s like sowing a seed in your consciousness. Just like sowing a seed, a plant doesn’t grow overnight – you must water it and nurture it with the right amount of light. It’s important to be around people that can inspire you to this next stage. Here are a few things you may try.
Write down the things you liked to do as a child. Open your memory to the fun you can remember. We must re-energize the child within and be silly, laugh and play once again.
Make a list of about 5 or so things you like to do as an adult; be true to yourself and totally honest.
I ask that you get back to what you really love to do. Not your job, not being a wife or mother. Something just for YOU! Something that gives YOU joy. The gifts you have. The desires you have; we all have desires and gifts. Search and you will find them. Life gets in the way and we forget our passions. We awaken to who we really are; we are precious to this life and connect with something bigger than us.
There is a proverb that states, “Our passions are the winds that propel our vessel. Our reason is the pilot that steers her. Without winds the vessel would not move and without a pilot she would be lost.” Get back in the pilot seat, motivate yourself, and steer your plane that we call life!
Remember, may the possibilities of today excite us all!
I am a woman with a passion and a vision of inspiring and empowering others to be better people for themselves and in turn for the world! I encourage others to grow in their daily lives; to be open to change. I am here to hear your thoughts and voice. I have compassion for the human race and want to encourage through words of wisdom.
