I experience my life as very passionate.
When I’m creating art, music or words. When I’m having conversations with friends. When I’m coaching my clients. When I’m performing songs. When I’m making love. When I’m cooking a meal. When I’m listening to someone perform.
I also can feel passionate though when I’m sick for weeks, just like not long ago, spending my days on the couch. Curious about that experience, surrendering to the ways my selflove wants to express through that.
I also can feel very passionate on days when not much seemingly passionate happens, when no one is around, and I’m having no creative project I’m working on, but just the feeling of being alive is making my day feel full and rich.
To me, passion is not a thing, like my passion is singing or coaching or cooking or writing or a lover or a project.
The thing comes secondary.
The passion is actually you, alive in your body, enjoying life, enjoying being here, in this moment.
Enjoying this connection to yourself, where selflove is a given.
And then, yes, through you, that joy probably naturally wants to express.
And passion flows into whatever you’re doing.
And if you let go of what you thínk your passion is - as in making the passion the thing, you might surprise yourself in what other ways passion wants to flow into your life.
You might find yourself being super passionate about sitting on a bench, quietly beaming your joy. (I often am 🤓)
Your passion might surprise you in discovering many new fun things that you’ve never even thought about enjoying.
Your passion might indeed lead you into a specific thing, like making art, building something, creating a family, being a coach, having a relationship.
But, it’s never the thing.
It’s not like you have to wait for something or someone exciting to come into your life before you can live a passionate life.
It’s life itself that ignites passion. It’s you being alive. You choosing life.
And how wonderful is that, when not just that thing is giving you passion, but you happen to be the passion!
