Someone once said, "I think everything in life is art." I think that's true. But, I think the key to living artfully, and savoring this beautiful life we've been given, is passion. We must live passionately.
Three years and one month ago, I wrote this:
Living passionately is important to me. I think if you asked my husband, Jeffrey, to describe me in three words, passionate would be his first. I couldn't resist. I just asked him. I was right.For one month each year, I invite blogging friends to join with me in a celebration of passionate living. April is that month. Let's celebrate personal passions. There will be frequent posts, special guests, and a give away or two. I hope you'll plan to join us.
Here it is. I live big. At least on most days I do. I believe that life is better when you laugh. That laughs are better when they are loud and long. I believe that you should never miss a chance to ride an upside-down roller coaster. And that when you ride it, you should keep your hands up and definitely scream your head off. I believe that dreams are valuable in their own right, but that the best dreams have hands and feet. I believe that life is too short to waste. So turn off the TV and start talking. I believe that to live passionately, you must live with intention. And thoughtfulness.
Let's think. Let's think about how we live. How we choose to spend our time. About what is important to us. And what isn't. About what brings us joy. And how we can bring joy to others. Let's think about our personal passions. Won't you join me?
