You know what absolutely kills my heart nowadays more than ever? It’s the lack of passion. The lack of passion that I hear, see, and FEEL from my fellow humans.
You guys, passion is what draws our emotions out..passion is what leads us to our destinies, what leads us to our true loves, and most importantly leads us to ourselves. Our true selves. PASSION is what gives us VISION, gives us the drive to fulfill that vision..and what I love about passion the most is that it really allows us to connect with one another, even strangers, on some wild, out of this world plane of understanding that we cannot explain. So why are we so afraid of this?
Today while answering the phones at work, I had a man thank me so passionately just for transferring his call..he said it with honest gratitude. And not only did I hear it in his voice, I felt the “thank you” through the phone as a feeling..It was amazing. He was focused on the conversation at hand, and so in the moment. And I sat there in awe. I told myself, “this is what I’ve been missing. This is what the WORLD is missing.” I was so thankful for his passion, I couldn’t wait to pay it forward.
A few minutes later as I’m scrolling on Instagram, I couldn’t help but start to get a little irritated. At first I didn’t know why, and so I kept scrolling, then it hit me: I see the same things and pictures every day on this damn thing. And what made it worse, I am no better!! But the real answer as to why I was feeling irritated for the continuous scrolling and repeated posts, was that this whole superficial social-media world lacks passion!! Yes, I understand, a good amount of people use apps like such to project their passions, and advertise themselves – hell, I do the same thing. It’s a good tactic. Yet, I can’t help but feel responsible for my fellow brothers and sisters in the depths of my empathetic soul..and have this need to smack them around a little bit and tell them forget the social media!! Forget the filters and forget the attention for just a little less a week.. find some time to quiet your mind and find or create what really makes you smile! Find the good things that make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck!! Find the things that give you chills and almost tears to your eyes when you close your eyelids and picture you in this visualization!! That picture is YOU! This is where your heart and soul derive!! How can you deny your self of such things!!
And when you find this passion, you will feel yourself become more passionate with every waking moment of the day.. you’re in love with your life
I’m pretty sure I have given this advice before.
Put down the fast food, put down the cellphone, breathe in that beautiful oxygen (did you forget you’re breathing?!), feel your heart beat, and be in your dream – make your dream be YOU.
Love you all.
