Sunday Journal: Chit-Chat … 52 List for Happiness [List #14]
Good Morning Friends … and Happy Sunday. I’ve been enjoying the cool fall temps this weekend + and just relaxing. I have a good book to curl up to + and a nice dinner planned + so I’m glad + and blessed for this Sunday.
This weeks list says … List everything you feel passionate about. Which is interesting. The definition of passionate is strong feelings + or a strong belief about something. This can mean many things as no one persons passion is quite the same. What drives you + what do you feel in heart + what do you get lost in … that’s your passion. So let’s get into this list.
LIST #14: LIST EVERYTHING YOU FEEL PASSIONATE ABOUT
1. My blog
2. My relationships with family and friends
4. Fairness to others
5. My craft
6. My dream job
7. Welfare of animals
TAKE ACTION: As Van Gough said, “I would rather die of passion than of boredom.” Everyone has a deep-down something that they feel passionate about or desire. Sometimes your passion conflicts with who you think you are or it feels difficult to attain with your busy schedule. Plan an afternoon this month that you will devote to exploring and investing in your deepest passion without fear or embarrassment!
I think as people we can be so fragile when it comes to certain aspects of our lives. We are worried about how our actions effect people + or what people would think + instead of focusing on our own dreams + and goals. I say … if something makes you feel good than do it. Do it without worry + do it without feeling embarrassed about what people will say or think. Feed your passion.
I’m most passionate about things that are close to me [i.e., relationships + family + and friends] + and I think that’s natural for most people. When I’m doing the things that I’m passionate about time escapes me. There is only me + focusing on that task. There are things on my list that seem unattainable + however it doesn’t hurt to take some time to explore what possibilities may be open to me + even if that just means to get it down on paper … it’s still my passion.
As I take this journey with this 52 list journal … I’m hoping that it brings awareness + and I’m hoping that it allows me to be more open + and honest about what truly makes me happy. With that I’ll end this post … Thanks so much for visiting my blog today + and with each post for this list + I hope that I can bring some of my happiness to others + because if you have joy in your heart + then you spread that joy to others. – [Know Thyself] Wye
