As if you were on fire from within. The moon lives in the lining of your skin-
Over the years as a father, husband, coach\trainer, a friend. I often find myself surrounded by people who rarely, if ever, have asked themselves: “What am I passionate about in life?” From the time most of us were little stinkers tearing up the neighborhood, we knew what we wanted to do. Playing until dusk, ignoring the call from mother to come inside, running without a care in the world, and trading baseball cards to put into the spokes of our bikes. We cherished these moments and we still do …
Meanwhile, many of us venture through the day uncertain of what we cared about, back in our youth. We spend an infinite amount of time choosing majors at university and picking a career, still uncertain of “our true passion – calling“.
Rediscovering our passion later in life is tricky to say the least. Many folks simply fall into molds society has conveniently placed around us: Men don’t do yoga. Muscles equal success, dangerously skinny women are placed proudly on a pedestal labeled as: Fitspiration.
Its time we stopped worrying about what physical activity will reignite our passion. What event, what gadget, what athlete, what lame – tired blog post … Just being passionate, each and every morning will allow your true spirit to reveal itself, attracting life to a you that is ready, willing, and able to dance the kind of dance – that you want to dance.
There is safety in life when we embrace the mold we live in, and then there is beautiful, passionate, unencumbered life. A life worth living …
That is absolutely a gorgeous picture my friend! XOXO – Bacon
Thank you! 🙂
ah, think there is a message in there for me today! thank you!
A clever, hidden little message of course. 🙂
I think little dude and I are going to put some cards in the spokes this evening!
Just make sure they don’t say Cabrera on them… Those are going to be worth something.
Easily one of the worst trades in baseball, for the Marlins! And one of the best for the Tigers, what did they trade for him again? A bucket of baseballs and a bag of rosin?!? My prediction: Tigers – Pirates World Series … May the best team win!
Your lips to God’s ears brother… And that crack about the bucket of baseballs… Now that was FUNNY! Thanks for the laugh.
Oh my, are you watching MNF? Ray Lewis as an announcer? My word, I thought Michelle Tafoya was bad…
When I was young, I wanted to be a superhero and save the day. I guess I am finding a way to save people in my own way every day.
You certainly are! 🙂
