I've always been a passionate person.
As a tween & teen this passion manifested itself in the slamming of doors when things didn't go my way, or the throwing of random objects at those who dared to wake me.
As a mom, my passion is parenting.
Not just parenting but how I choose to parent.
I find myself pouring over blogs and other various child-related websites (sometimes in the wee hours of the morning). I will spend months (literally months) researching the next big thing in child-related products.
As I've mentioned a time or (eleventy-billion) I've become quite involved in my local LLL group - these women are freaking awesome (for realz)! Several of them I knew before but never as more than acquaintances. It's funny what a few years, some babies and a mortgage can do to you (we definitely have a lot more in common now), and a mutual (passion?) interest.
With my back-to-work-date around the proverbial corner, I've been pondering what life would be like if we were independently wealthy... I crave companionship, adult conversation and being useful (I realize that parenting my boys is the most useful thing I can do but there are days where I feel like I'm losing myself in Cheerios and dirty bums)... these things I love about work... but if I didn't have to work (like really, did.not.have.to.work - like "Housewives of [insert location]") I don't think I would. The more I think about it, the more I believe I'd cultivate this new-found passion.
I can only see my participation with this organization growing... I love the friendships that have blossomed through this group! We are such a freaking hoot (this is my completely biased opinion).
What are you passionate about?
If money was no object - how would you go about cultivating your passion(s)?
