What fuels YOUR Spirit? What are you Passionate about? When you wake up each morning are you eager to greet the new day and spend at least a few moments of the day with your “Passion Project?”
A Passion Project is something which keeps you so exhilarated that you almost don’t need sleep or food when you are immersed in it. It’s similar when you are in love - the rest of the world fades away and life is Grand!
For Sasha, becoming proficient in the English language is one of his Passions. (Read below). My Passion these past few years has been construction of the Penny Palace. Prior to that, some Passion Projects were: raycing a solar-powered car across Australia’s Outback, creating memorable experiences for my engineering students, organizing a “final tour of friends” for someone who was dying, putting together a special honeymoon for a deserving couple, and numerous other adventures.
What are YOUR Passion Projects? Perhaps hiking the Grand Canyon, running a marathon, climbing a mountain, renovating an old home, decorating elaborate cakes, tending to a beautiful garden, coaching your kid’s sports team … What makes your Spirit Soar?
Today Sasha wrote:
“…thanks to this project, I am totally immersed into English having a trigger, a drive to think in English, communicate actively and giving comments. You have made me using English as the second language, waking me up from the laziness life routine. … THANK YOU. I would like to stay on the ‘journey’ regardless the outcome. The most important thing is to be active in life... I have been awakened, charged (infected) somehow with your energy."
Thought for Today: With YOUR Spirit charged, who, in turn, can YOU charge?
