"Ignoring your passion is like dying a slow death…

Passion whispers to you through your feelings, moves you towards your highest good.

Pay attention to what makes you feel alive and excited, connected, and stimulated, to what gives you your juice.

Do what you love, give it back in the form of service, and you will do more than succeed, you will triumph.
"

- (something like that by) Oprah Winfrey


So what are your passions, or, are you dying a slow death?

“Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others, past and present, and by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.” ― David Mitchell

If I had Oprah's wealth, I'd have plenty of idle time to think about what are my existing and future passions.

sorry, I hate to disagree again ...............
but your passions have nothing to do with wishfull dreams;
there's another quote that says: "you never miss what you never had" - Hunter S. Thompson
Another thing, we've got too many examples that excessive wealth been the cause of unhappiness, emptiness and void, which many of them led to suicide.

A passion can be as simple as stroll in the country side or on the beach. This quote means that, if you like doing it, but won't you'll be as good as killing your living.

Well, I have to disagree with Thompson, because I do miss having the means to travel to far off lands that I've seen on video...travelling being one of my interests. Add to that the financial means...I could stoke great passions.

Passion is an empty nest, bottles of wine and a hot tub. At least around here. chuckle.gif

Purple Passion by Raymond A. Foss

Royal, rich, deep purple
brilliant luminous petals
drink the pulse of light
from the fleeting flash
burn the fragrant color
into the cell, cut through
the fog, radiant hue
seal a moment with your power
capture the instant
of purple passion
