Resurrect a childhood dream ~ Let your passion take flight.

PASSION, as used here, is defined as a strong or extravagant fondness, enthusiasm, or desire for anything. I don’t recall any one thing from my childhood that I was or still am PASSIONATE about.  I have always struggled with the answering the career coaching question: “What did you like to do as a child?” 

Until a few years ago I thought that there was something deeply wrong with me because I would be curious about something new and learn all I could about it. I finally found my PASSION only to become bored with it after a few months or a year or two.  So fickle am I.

I met Susan Reid when I was working on Seasons of Change Coaching Certification. Susan is a small business coach who writes about multiple streams of PASSION.  Her words resonated deeply.  I no longer feel like an oddball.  I have good company with the likes of Leonardo Da Vinci and Hildegard of Bingen though my aspirations are less lofty.

As a person with multiple streams of PASSION, I have discovered and developed many skills. Now that I am no longer in the workforce, I am grateful for the variety of interests (PASSIONS) that keep me engaged and empowered.

Even if it may no be possible to resurrect a childhood dream, it is balm for the soul to take part in activities that you love or are able to offer in service to another.  It is healing for the mind and spirit to pursue and embrace, with PASSION, the our current life as it unfolds.

I did not choose my health issues but I am PASSIONATE about learning to live well with them…. to create, to learn, to serve, to heal.  To truly live “what is.”

Maybe that’s all there really is.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on PASSION.

What does living a life with passion mean to you?  Are you living it?
