I was listening to a man explain that the key to living your passions in life is to just simply do it. If you dream it, or have a passion for something, you should simply go about and try to live it as fully as you can. Abandon all paralyzing fear, set aside judgements and excuses and just do it.
it all sounds so easy, I mean you boil this down to a few simply phrases and viola you are on your way. Except it’s never that easy. First you must find you passion. Not a passing lust, but a pure passion. Next you need to take you passion and apply it to your whole life. Sometimes at the cost of things. You must put you full energy into this without excuses. Try that when here is so much stuff going on in the “sidelines” of your life.
My father once told me that if you got to the end of your life with little regrets and no energy leftover, you probably lived a full life. He also told me that to move a full life you had to set aside things like worrying about what other people would think about you. He told me he didn’t think he’d make the grade on living fully and he was okay with that. He may have a few more regrets, but he certainly wouldn’t have had to kick out some space to light the way for what he wanted so that was an ideal trade-off.
perhaps to live your passions you have to be willing to have that become your whole life. Sure you make some space here and there for the other stuff and people, but you must live completely for and with your passion. And that can be daunting as well, when you consider how many aspects of your life might be ignored or placed on a lower priority. I know my dad wouldn’t be happy living that kind of life. The question is, where do I fit into that equation. How about you? Where do you fit?
