Passion...the "get your butt out of bed", "never give up", "blood, sweat and tears" engine that really moves us from one place to another.
Some are lucky and find their passions early. I hate those folks. :) You know, those who knew from an early age what they wanted to do and be. I had one of those folks as a roommate in college. He knew from the age of 9 that he wanted to be a pilot...and he is. He's a great guy, so I don't hate him too much. Hi Jared, if your out there.
For those of us who are still searching for that drive,(smile, smile) I believe there's hope in finding our passion. Once we've tried a few pursuits, made lots mistakes and failed a few times, I think we're forced to really learn what we're good at and what we're not. In that arena, I think passions are found. I feel like I'm really close to finding mine.
Are you there now? Are you on the other side? Have you found yours?
Now go write about it. Go do it.
