Five years ago, I got lucky. I saw a sassy 66-year-old woman on the TODAY Show doing the very thing I was so freakingly passionate about as a teenager. I had stopped barefoot water skiing a few years after becoming deaf from a fall while footin’–then at 44, I figured I was too old to ever do it again. I met Judy Myers in Florida, put my feet back on the water, and re-discovered my passion again.
I learned a lot about passion in the last five years. Now I’m working on sharing those lessons with others. When you do what you’re passionate about, your life takes on a whole new dimension. Everyone around you benefits too. Passion is energy. You’ve gotta choose it. Most of the time, we put it off, ignore it, or suppress it. As a result, we give off less than optimal energy. This leads to a sad, grumpy world.
Use your gifts. Use your abilities. There is no one in this whole wide world as unique as you. Not happy? Grab a brand new pen and create a new story for your life. Because if you don’t, you’ll end up with the exact same life five years from now. If you don’t like it now, you won’t like it later, either.
Passion–choose to invite it in your life.
