Last night I watched my favorite movie ever, for the 6th time, Serendipity starring John Cusack. At the end of the movie one of the supporting actor’s writes, “The Greeks did not write obituaries about a person’s life. Instead they asked one question, Did that person have passion?” That is an excellent question that each of us should take the time to consider.
Do you have passion in your life? Many people equate passion to an intimate romantic relationship. That is not what I mean by passion. I am referring more closely to the the definition of passionate, driven by strong emotions and beliefs. Is there something in your life that drives you with emotion to make a difference? I am passionate about my family, faith, writing, teaching, and meditations. I am emotionally tied to each of those ideas. I typically allow my passion to illuminate and motivate my life.
What drives you? What makes you emotional? What beliefs do you hold that you would never give up for anything? What is your passion? What are you passionate about at this moment in your life? If you can’t think of anything dig deeper. What do you devote the majority of your time to in your life right now? That will help you to get to this point. Discover your passion, consider, and pray about if it is appropriate, and needed then decide on how to live out that passion.
