A while ago, a wise person said to me that everyone needs to have five things they are passionate about. I never really thought much about it or sat down to consider mine, until recently when we were told to write them down for a course I was doing.
It took a little while, a few scribblings on the page, but I managed to come up with 4 passions, the 4 things I do that give me great joy. Number 5 I'm still narrowing down!
They aren't in any particular order, but here they are:
1. Being mama to Miss TikiBoo. That goes without saying really.
2. Travelling. Near or far, I love exploring new places and rediscovering old. In particular Paris and France, which could almost be listed as a passion in it's own right, but we're sticking to 5!
3. My home - living here, decorating, making it a place we love to spend time. Inside and out, furnishing it, gardening, I love this place.
4. Finding beauty - looking at the world through a camera lens, sewing a beautiful dress, restoring a piece of once ugly furniture. Creating a garden from bare earth. There is beauty all around us in everyday things. I want to find it.
I'll explore these further soon, but in the meantime there are links to the side, the ones that look like strips of masking tape, which take you to posts labeled with these themes, as these four things are really what my blog is all about!
Can you name 4 or 5 things in your life that you're truly passionate about?
If you have stopped by, it would be lovely if you could leave a comment or just say hello so I know that you've been here. Thank you!
