Gratitude post #11: some like it hot
Strange, I know, to blog about this, but today I am grateful for passion.
It's not necessarily a popular emotion, because it gets people into trouble (oh man, been there). But it also gets people through the tough spots, because sometimes it's all a person has. Especially on the days when you say to yourself, "this m****rf***ing thing is a PILE OF SHIT and IT IS NOT A SPARKLY VAMPIRE and NO ONE LOVES ME!!" Those are the days you need some passionate belief in yourself.
Here's a guy who is passionate about bending things. Love this dude.
Here are some folks who are passionate about cake. Love cake.
Here's a family who's passionate about hedgehogs. Do not know if I love hedgehogs, but am willing to give them a go.
The writing community is passionate about words. The ranching community is passionate about cows. Whatever communities we belong to, passion keeps us together.
I should write it with a lot of exclamation points, in caps: PASSION!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Do you know how hard it is to find an image for passion that is not people having (about to have) sex or crown-of-thorns Jesus?)
