What is your #1 passion in life? Now, imagine what would happen if you incorporated that passion into your life daily. Write down your passion and keep it close to you. Remind yourself of it daily, just like brushing your teeth.
See. So this is where I wonder if I’ve lost my sense of humor a little or if I’m just grumpy… but i’m not keen on the idea of having to “imagine” what would happen if i incorporated my passion into my daily life.
I like to think that following my passion is exactly how i’ve ended up where I am so far. Not that this spot I’m in is particularly dazzling to onlookers but I sure do like it in this moment. I’m not one for complacency, usually when that happens it’s a clear sign I’ll be changing things up in one way or another. But my passion drives me. For better or worse, absolutely.
I’ll totally admit, I do allow myself to make a few excuses that may prevent me from being quite as risky as my guts often want me to be. Stuff like being a single mom of two very young kids, for one. Well, maybe that’s really the only one… but I definitely don’t let that stop me from doing exactly what I love in life. If I feel I can’t approach things the high-risky way, there’s always fun in the challenge of figuring out the way to make what I want, fit where I’m at in life. I enjoy that a lot. And i’ve been pretty amazed at how awesome that works out. (Astounding how it actually does seem to always work out.)
But I bet this prompt would like me to imagine how i can push aspects of passion-incorporation even further. So I’ll think about that for a while.
