Living With Passion

Living with passion gives meaning to ones life.
To be passionate means to live from your center, your heart and your soul. Because the term evokes different emotions in different people- excitement, meaning, love, commitment, enthusiasm, delight, fervor, wild abandon - before we can integrate passion into our lives, we first need to know what stirs it in us.
It doesn't mean you have to love everything you do, but to have at least one driving force that keeps you going. Something to look forward to.
When you're passionate about what you do, you can't wait to get out of bed each morning and start your day.Work really can be like play instead of drudgery, that we drag ourselves off to and count the minutes until we can be released from the torture we've endured.
When you love what you do for work, to earn a living, then every day becomes exciting and a new adventure! You can work for hours and it feels like minutes. The time really does fly when you're having fun.You know when you're doing what you love when you'd keep on doing it even if you didn't get paid. Usually when you love what you do the money follows.
There's a book by Marsha Sinetar called "Do What You Love, The Money Will Follow"

Some say that we should make the best of any situation and our attitude is what matters.
I agree and I also believe if we all followed our passion and were true to ourselves then we wouldn't have to try to make the best out of the situation...it would be the best situation!
A world full of people following their bliss would be a world full of happier people.
There's a reason we like doing what we're passionate about. It's the souls way of saying what your life purpose is, it's your self expression. We all have something to contribute, something we're good at. What are YOU good at? What are YOU passionate about?
The people that I see enjoying their lives the most, are those that have created MORE of what they love in their everyday lives and LESS of what they don't enjoy.
Joseph Campbell says:
“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls”
