Passionate Conclusions

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

OK. I really can not say how this week finished out. I am writing this post in advance of my last Passion filled Day. At this very moment  (the moment of your reading, not the moment of my writing!) I am enjoying a fun family day at Disneyland. As I mentioned in an earlier post I love Disney. My daughter loves Tinkerbell and my husband loves us so he surprised us with a little vacation to visit the mouse. All indications leading up to this day are pointing to a very high Passion score!

In my Birthday post I allowed myself to get present to some passions I had been neglecting.  I really didn't realize how powerful an act that was until after I did it. If you haven't already, I HIGHLY recommend you do the same. Go on back and review my passion list if you need inspiration but really you can do this all on your own. Sit with a piece of paper, or page on your computer until you have 25+ passions listed. I picked 47, because that is how old I am, but any number that has you reaching and discovering things you might have recently forgotten will do just fine. 

The big AH HAA for me was in discovering how easy it is to get complacent and not at all passionate about things that ARE important to you and just taking a few minutes to get present to those things can rekindle that lost passion! Truly, after writing my list I was ON FIRE about many things and I was feeling very passionate and motivated to do something about those passions!

For the reason above I am estimating a very high 8 out of 10 for my Passion Score. Certainly there is always room to improve this but the week has all together been a great success. In the arena of Bliss boosts I think I'll give myself my highest score to date. 8 Bliss Boosts! Getting present to my passion has really increased my experience of Bliss and finishing the week off in The Happiest Place on Earth is certain to keep my score high!

So how about you? Did you have a Passion filled week? Did you try out any of the initiatives I or our guest blogger offered to get those passionate juices flowing? If not is never too late! Try something today!
