Passions | Roots

Photography of tree roots exposed along a nature trail.

Interests and passions come and go.  And when we’ve spent years enjoying and honing a discipline, it can be especially painful when the passion for it fades.

It’s important to remember that life is about change.  Nothing is constant or guaranteed to last forever.  We’re constantly growing, so we should remain flexible enough to go where the current takes us.

It’s painful to lose passion for something you used to love, but refusing to let something go and move forward can be even more painful.  We can’t always recapture what was lost by desperate pursuit.

When passions fade, it’s also important to remember that just because passion is now gone, it doesn’t mean it won’t return in the future.

Let’s be flexible and accepting of where life and our interests take us.  Let’s enjoy our loves and passions while they last.  And should they fade, let’s be grateful for the fun we had, and move on to discover our new passion.

Our old passions might come back to visit us someday, but let’s not stay put waiting for that to happen or clinging to what was.  Let’s move forward and see what else there is to love.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’
