Passions Q1

(Feels like cheating, but I have several of these edited already…so…yay, first blog day crazy post count!)

1 The Definition Trap

 How do you define passion?

Passion for me means…

Drawing happiness and joy from activities; waking up and looking forward to the day. Enjoying what I am doing so much that it’s difficult to put it down, the “I need to stop or I’ll work on this all night” feeling. Creation, exploration, engagement, learning something new, going somewhere, eager interest, enthusiasm.

Passion for my friends and family means…

Spending time together and laughing, enjoying fun-and-together activities. Usually outdoors, out of the office, get outside and see the sunshine. No cares, no stress, and lots of smiles.

When I’m living a passionate life, it looks…

Like the next day should be even better than today.

When I’m following my passion, I feel…

Like I never want to stop, like there’s nothing else I’d rather be doing. But it will still be waiting if I decide to detour for a day, or a week.

My passions seem to feel (to me) primarily Ludus; playful, fun, exciting, adventure. It’s what I feel when I have an epiphany, a great idea or the next a-ha project. And, of course, ideally they would grow and develop into Storge—lifelong, lasting loves and/or Agape—success and security.
