What is the first thing you think of when you hear the word passion? I would venture to say most think of being passionate in more of a physical sense. But, we can be passionate about many things. There is passion for someone else, rooting your favorite sports team or having a passion for a hobby. Whatever it is choose it. But in doing so, don’t lose your perspective.
I “attended” a webinar last week on volunteering. While the instruction was geared toward volunteering and not over-extending ourselves, it can also be a reminder to the other areas of passion in our lives. Sometimes we get so involved in things in our lives that we do lose our perspective. Perspective is defined as the capacity to view things in their true relations or relative importance. Take a moment and evaluate where the passions are in your life.
Be passionate but be ever diligent and don’t lose your perspective. Period.
