I was thinking about passion the other day and how important it is to life. Some people think passion is just some sex thing, but in reality it means: fervor, ardor, enthusiasm, eagerness, zeal, vigor, fire, energy, fervency, spirit, fanaticism.
Why is passion important? To me, without passion, life is a routine that becomes a place we get stuck. With passion, life is an adventure.
Bill Cosby, a great comedian and truly a thinking philosopher, once said,
“Anyone can dabble, but once you’ve made that commitment, your blood has that particular thing in it, and it’s very hard for people to stop you.”
One of my passions is writing. It is just something that makes my life an adventure. Ray Bradbury, a great writer, once said about writing,
“Love it. Fall in love and stay in love. Write only what you love, and love what you write. The key word is love. You have to get up in the morning and write something you love, something to live for.”
What’s your passion? If we don’t have some reason to get up in the morning, then we will probably just stay in bed till we die.
