Passionate Back Story?

PASSION - a fervent or extravagant fondness, enthusiasm, or desire for anything; experience of strong love or sexual desire. [Click here for this week's Bliss Initiatives]

The things I love with a passion by Silvia Chidi

I rock and roll with passion
I talk out my soul with a passion

I eat good food with passion
I defeat bad mood with a passion

I sleep well with passion
I weep hell with a passion

I dream endlessly with passion
I gleam ceaselessly with a passion

I aim for money with passion
I do the same for honey with a passion

I listen carefully with passion
I glisten dutifully with a passion

I search for fame with passion
I research to blame with a passion

I walk everyday with passion
I talk and play with a passion

I embrace life with passion
I face nightlife with a passion

I laugh out with passion
I chaffe about with a passion

I cook with others with passion
I look at mothers with a passion

I touch gently with passion
I clutch tightly with a passion

I work hard with a passion
I rock mad with a passion

I gear up goals with passion
I stir up roles with a passion

I make friends with passion
I take weekends with a passion

I love kissing with passion
I love teasing with a passion

I make love with passion
I take from above with a passion

If push comes to shove
Label me old fashioned
For these are things I caption
In life with all my passion

I really like this poem. I really like Sylvia. She is one of these take life by storm kind of people I always imagine I am or should I say I hope to be. After writing that 2500 word Autobiography Yesterday I distinguished what has been missing for this week of PASSION. I have no compelling back story. Before getting married my back story was this slightly eccentric world traveler girl who always made time for fun.  A back story is a sort of mission statement, it provides a place to stand when launching into life. It is time for me to have a new back story. My old story was all about me alone and my new one is about me and my family. Being a family really is something sacred. Particularly the one you choose. Unlike the one you are born into a chosen family is dependent on your direction and I really haven't created one! Ah ha!!! Now this is getting FUN! I'll keep you posted!

What is your back story? Have you actively created it or did it just happen to you? I think PASSION demands a compelling back story. Create it now!
