In Pursuit of Passion

Am I who people think I am or am I who I think I am? Will I become someone different over the next 10 years or will I always the same me at my core?

It is not my nature to make New Year’s resolutions. I am too realistic to think that a new start to the year will be enough motivation to make me stick to something. However, somewhere in the far reaches of my soul,  I believe 2011 will sell me a brand new sparkly enlightenment that I will carry on my shoulder for the rest of my life. It will be a self-created discovery that I will somehow convince myself I deserve.  I do not believe in magical mysterious enlightenment. My enlightenment will come because I will dig deep and latch on with the determination I have put into other pockets of my life.

2011 brings a new fixation to find what I think I want for my life while keeping myself open to find what I’m not even looking for. I intend to find what I am not anticipating and welcome it with open arms.

2011 = The year I found my passion

Passion (from the Ancient Greek verb πάσχω (paskho) meaning to suffer or to endure) is an emotion applied to a very strong feeling about a person or thing. Passion is an intense emotion compelling feeling, enthusiasm, or desire for something. The term is also often applied to a lively or eager interest in or admiration for a proposal, cause, or activity or love. Passion can be expressed as a feeling of unusual excitement, enthusiasm or compelling emotion towards a subject, idea, person, or object. A person is said to have a passion for something when he has a strong positive affinity for it. A love for something and a passion for something are often used synonymously.

What will I be emotionally and enthusiastically compelled to be?
