Passion makes your day flow. Passion is rocket fuel for your mind. Walking through today can be an adventure or an indenture. Carrying baggage from yesterday ensures you will not reach your stride or fully enjoy the beauty. Ignite your passion each day by giving. Simply give yourself in service doing what you love.
Kevin Koym said it wonderfully when he reminded me that “… the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45 NIV)
Keeping up is not enough, you need passion to move ahead and be the servant leader the world needs.
What are you waiting for?
Life is whole not separation.
Life is the whole thing. What I do, who I am being, what I love, where I live/work/play, why I take action.
Taken as a whole life is simple. Put forth your best effort in each adventure while you strive to highlight the truth. This is your simple life. Not saying it is easy but I will not go back to torn apart. Life in separate compartments can be hard as you grope to maintain the distinction between home/work/play.
How do you live life?
Are you where you expected to be today/in life? I have a huge relief since reading a post by Dan Pink on his Johnny Bunko blog.
Dan suggest we rephrase the age-old questions: “What’s your passion?” and “What do you want to do with your life?” ALL my life I struggled with these questions. Dan’s suggestions for rephrasing the questions is an ‘ah ha’ moment in my life. On one level it is liberating because I am reminded it is ‘and’ not ‘or.’ “What’s your passion now? And now? And now? And now? For a life time. “What do you want to do next?” And next? And next? And next?
You catch my drift. I do the thing now and grow/move on. I do not have to chose one thing over something else.
I am living my calling, now.
