Being Passionate About What I Love

Through your passion, you will find inner peace out of adversity. ~ Azziza Salem

I read this quote last week and I was touched by it, since I've been working on having inner peace even while going through adversity. I believe there has to be a way to find this peace even when life is tough.  The quote reminded me how I need to live with and by my passion.

I pondered for years what my passion could be, I believe it is my writing.  It's the place I can be myself, much like I am with my David. We all need something or someone that we have passion for and about. I enjoy the process of blogging, writing from my heart, reading other people's blogs and being inspired.

For some reason that I can't explain, not even to myself; I've been weepy.  It's not that I'm unhappy, life is pretty good. I'm feeling more relaxed at work, my house is 95% clean and organized, my David and I are good friends again (I miss him so much when he's out on exercises with the army but it's only a week or more and he'll be home).

There must be something sad underlying. I would hope I had a reason to be weepy.   It's really odd, it comes in waves, I'll just be talking to a client and then suddenly my eyes will tear up?  It doesn't seem to last for more than a minute or two but I can feel this deep emptiness and than it's gone before I can analyze the emotion.

One thing about this cleaning and purging, I feel lighter.  I can walk around my house comfortably, I no longer fear what I might walk on or bump into.  It's so calming, it makes me desire to keep it up, plus Valentina is commenting often on how nice the place is and how wonderful a sleep she has had (hopefully this will inspire her to keep her room clean herself). This has really helped me a great deal.

  1. I like this post. Following your passion is good advice for everyone, I think. So many get tangled up in other things that they really don't care about, and their life slips away. Best of luck to you with your writing.

  2. Thank you so much Daisy, I really appreciate the thoughtful comments that you post;)


I love and appreciate all genuine comments, to save a little time, I won't be commenting on the comments on my blog (unless you don't have a blog), I will just visit your blog and comment there, if you have left a meaningful comment for me... I would much rather spend the time reading and commenting on a few extra blogs ❤
