What is passion?

A strong emotion,

a dedication to something or someone.

Passion is extreme fervor,

and our deepest desires.

It’s the fire that lights up our soul,

that burns deep in our bellies.

Passion brings us equal parts

of joy, and misery.

We suffer for our passion

and we are sustained by it, too.

Without passion man is a mere latent force and possibility, like a flint which awaits the shock of the iron before

it can give forth its spark~ (Henri Frederic Amiel)

So the questions continues to plague me- what is my passion?

It’s time for me take the advice of mystic Teresa of Avila, 

 to cast aside my daily concerns and reflect upon the state of my soul.

It’s clear to me that I will never reach my goal of discovering my passion

and living a full life by continuing down the road I am currently traveling.

It’s time to discover my passion.
