I am excited and honored to be hosting the Writer’s Post Blog Hop this week! The Writer’s Post is a great group of fellow writers on Face Book moderated by my dear friend Jenn of Wine-n-Chat. So if you are intrigued by the topic, I encourage you to hop along and link up. The hop is open till next Thursday! The challenge is to share what or who you are most passionate about. Do you feel a person who pursues their passions will have a more fulfilling life? What do you think of when you think of passion?
All of my life I have been most passionate about exercising my creativity. I was passionate about my artwork at one time. Then I became passionate about my writing and photography. Most of all, I am passionate about my husband and children. Without them, not much in life would truly matter. For a long time after my mom died I retreated within myself. My creativity was almost extinguished. During that time, I played the piano for hours at a time. I was passionate about my music. Time passed and I met my soul mate, the one man I truly wanted to spend the rest of my life with. I wanted to grow old with him, have babies, and eventually grand babies. After almost 15 years, we are still together with a precious daughter and son to call our own. Just recently I decided to take a class in web design. Once again my creativity has been allowed to soar and I have become passionate about soaking in every bit of knowledge I possibly can. I love learning the ins and outs of the coding and look forward to writing coding for my own website and building it from the ground up. It sounds like fun and is my assignment for the next three weeks.
So after rambling along for an entire paragraph, I will sum it up in a nutshell by saying I am passionate about just about everything I do (except cleaning) whether it be writing for my website or cutting my kids sandwiches into creative shapes for their lunches. I am most passionate about loving my husband and kids and being creative. If I didn’t pursue my passions, I think life would be pretty dismal. Pursuing passions makes life worth living and more meaningful. So, what are you passionate about?
