“Smother your passions and you’ll forget what you love.”
Many of us have put aside our passions to focus on practical goals. That’s okay, but be sure you’re only putting them to the side temporarily, not smothering them.
You need to stay in touch with your passions, even if it’s only long enough to remind yourself that you still have them. Take a one-day seminar, a weekly art class, attend a monthly reading club, or go online and “chat” with folks that have similar interests, when you can. This will keep your passion flowing, without taking a large chunk of time from your schedule.
If you don’t have time during the week, indulge your passions on weekends, vacations or holidays. Make it a goal to keep in touch with your passions. When you do, you will know how valuable you are, and, you will live in Technicolor, instead of black-and-white.
