Passion #AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z
My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Cultivating Happiness. Today, P is for Passion.
The hands of the clock were as lethargic as her mental state.
Endless meetings, needless paper-work numbed her.
The security and comfort of job overpowered till fate caught up with her.
And she beat it good with butter and sugar until enticing whispers of cookies, pies and cakes greeted and warmed her heart every day!
A Word to the Wise
Be passionate in your life. Engage in work that you love. Cultivate relationships that you are passionate about. Take up hobbies and activities with enthusiasm.Don’t wait for someone else or something else to ignite the flame of passion into your life. Go find it for yourself!

Love the last slap! Go find it yourself. Indeed!

Yeah, nobody else can find out what you are passionate about. It’s something that you have to do it in your own!

My parents did what they thought they ‘had to’ in order to provide for our family, even when it meant they put aside things about which they were passionate. I honor their sacrifice; I just wish they had had a little more happiness in their lives.
Sometimes we need to be ‘grounded’; and sometimes, we need to fly!

Agree with you completely! Yes, in our parents’ times, doing what you love was not so common, it was all about providing for the family. I liked what you mentioned about sometimes being grounded and to fly sometimes. Wish we can find a perfect balance for that!

Oh yes, passion can give such a meaningful direction and purpose in life!

True! Commercialising an art, any art, takes away a little magic from the art itself. Because now you are racing against the clock to meet deadlines, whereas earlier you could spend time leisurely, baking or writing.
Amazing post Shilpa! It really brings out the real meaning of passion 🙂

Agreed and I believe in this fully Shilpa but I am also aware that many people do not have the luxury to indulge their passions. In that case they have to whip up a passion for whatever they do I guess 🙂

So very true, Shilpa. A passion is a necessity for me for I deal with so much stress during my working hours. The tale is bang on the target!

Great post, Shilpa! Passion is the reason for life.

Brilliant Shilpa! Doing what one does with a passion is what works and inadvertently it will be your best output too!

What a beautiful life it is for people who follow their passion and do what they dream!

What is life without some passion? That last line just says it all 🙂 Lovely post.

Inspiring lines shilpa, thanks for reminding 🙂

I love her for pursuing her passion. Hopefully I can do it too one day.

We so get carried away by the ‘comfort’ of things. Fate does intervene at times, but sometimes it might be just too late.
Loved how you start and end your posts.
