I think I do.......I hope  I do~~

No, not necessarily this kind of passion....although, this could be part of it.

I really hope I'm not "just whistling in the dark ~~ thinking I lead a full life" as Matthew Perry so aptly stated.

Real passion was not always a major part of my life when I was younger.  Sometimes, I would barely be able to hold on to it and other times it completely left the building. life's adversity, sorrow and pain would ebb and flow through my life; it seems I could always hold onto that tiny thread of passion that seemed to hide inside.

Passion~~just like any growth....always comes from the inside out....not the other way around.

Passion fuels creativity and  beauty ~~ or does creativity and beauty fuel passion?

I'm not sure I know the answer to that.....but one thing I am sure of is what my passion is.  My passion is CREATING BEAUTY wherever and whenever I matter what my station in life.

Dear friends ~~ what are you passionate about?



Today I'm linking up with The House of Belonging for a day in the life of.......
