Eat, Pray, Love

I often wonder, if I could pursue any passion of mine, would I be brave enough to do as the character portrayed in Eat, Pray, Love?  Would I have the courage to just go and do what I really wanted, without hesitation? 

First off, I have to really figure out what my passions are, that would inspire me enough to make me get of my rusty dusty and do what needed to be done. What makes me want to get out of bed in the morning? What makes me want to be a better person?  Do I have any passions that move me enough?  Is there

anything that I want that bad, that I would fight to find it?  Or am I dead in my heart?  Has the world beaten me down enough that I don't think my passions could ever become a reality?  No, I am sure they can become a reality, if I want them bad enough.  But what are they, really?

What does passion really mean?  Definition: a strong and barely controllable emotion.  Hmmmm, is there anything that I am passionate about?   Is there anything that I would move mountains for?

I am passionate about my writing. I love to write, and currently have a few books that I am working on, and several other ideas.  Writing seems to be more of an addiction than a passion.  I guess it depends on how you look at it.  It is a very strong emotion, but it is a controllable one.

My Boys
I am passionate about my grandchildren. I have very strong emotions, when I think about them growing up in this crazy world.  Sometimes my emotions are barely controllable when I think of this.  Thus, my book that I am writing, and my blog that I keep, dedicated to my grandchildren.  I am moved to passion regularly with my grandchildren and their futures.  But yet, I do not have a lot of control over their lives.  I can only influence from a grandmother's point of view.  So I must get creative and influence in ways that they will respect and listen.

I am passionate about getting out of debt.  This old world is kind of a scary place right now, and I really want to be debt free.  This is an extremely strong emotion.  It is barely controllable, because it seems to consume my time, thinking of ways that I can do this.  It does move me to action. 

I am passionate about owning a piece of land, close to where my Walk The Creek all started.  This has always been a very strong emotion for me.  There is just something about the foothills of the Southern
My Creek
Alberta Rockies, that speaks to me.  It calls to me.  Yet I don't think I have an uncontrollable emotion for it, until I drive that way again, and the emotions and memories seem to bring me home.  Then it is all I can do to return back to the city, back to reality, back to my other home. 

So really what am I passionate about enough, that I have such strong and uncontrollable emotions?  What will inspire me so much that I must move mountains to make it happen?  Honestly, I don't know.  It is kind of a sad thought, but I really don't know.  It is time to do some soul searching.  It is time to figure out how to answer these questions for myself.  It is time to figure out my own "eat, pray, love" story. 

Do you know what your passionate about?  Do you know what you would move mountains to make happen?  I would love to hear about it?
