We all have something that causes the passion to bubble up within us. Be it writing or photography, health or healing, art or literature, dance or travel, nature or sport, film or fashion, justice or love.
When someone takes that passion and uses it for the higher good, it can be translated into something beautiful. And if it fills just one heart with joy; if it resonates with at least one other human being and makes them feel that they are not alone; if it helps even one person live a better life, then that is a passion worth sharing.
“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” Nelson Mandela
If you have something that awakens some little bit of a sparkle within you, don’t be afraid to blow on its embers. Set the world alight with your passion. Not only will you be doing a service to all those who witness what you have to offer, but it will make you feel alive.

I enjoyed your thoughts: thanks for posting.
If bums held signs like the one in the photo, I’d fork over my life savings!
Great post thanks. I really enjoyed it very much.
Love writing? We would love for you to join us!
Stunning photos, the first one is amazing
I’ll take the compliment for finding the photos but not taking them, unfortunately…
Great message! Now to remember it everyday and not let life take over.
Exactly! It ain’t easy but wouldn’t it be wonderful if we all could remember to share our passions?
What saddens me, though, is that some people can’t find theirs.
I think if people were left alone long enough, without pressure, they would find what makes them feel passionate.
Great shots, the first one is superb..:-))
Thanks, Ed. As I’ve said before, I wish I could take credit for them but not this time… 😉
