The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!”” – Jack Kerouac
What makes you burn, light, explode. What makes you forget your eyes are burning, your legs are swollen, your hands broken. What make you forget the difference between day and night, the difference between an empty stomach and a full stomach. What makes you say “Just this last one” endlessly.
Passion is a great thing, probably the only thing that diffuses life in us all, real life. Without passion, we would all be zombies walking around in a defined pattern, not knowing where we are going and what is the place where when we reach we will say – This is it!!
While it is not too difficult to find our passions, it is surprising how many people go about their life without really wondering what they are passionate about. It takes efforts, time, energy and lots of passion to find your true passion. Not what you do, not what you have, not what you want, your passion is what you are. It’s not your profession, not even your hobbies, but it defines you as a person.
I am passionate about Pictures. Collecting them, clicking them, Cropping them and whatever else is possible to be done with pictures. When I am with my camera, or with my albums or folders, I am in this different world.
So today, ask yourself – What are you truly passionate about? Find it, Define it, Write it and when you’re sure of what is it, staple it to your forehead and walk around with it. Live it. Show it off. And those of you who have turned your passion into your profession, you are the true winners. Hats off to you!!
