Howard Thurman, an American philosopher and civil rights advocate, said, "Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
I came across this quote on my cousins blog (she has a few I don't know which one or I'd direct you there). It has started me thinking: What makes ME come alive? Mrs. V, one of my high school English teachers would appreciate this (Right Christie?). She would always ask us "What is your BLISS?" Which is essentially the same idea. Funny how over the years it's easy to forget what my bliss is, my passion, what makes me come alive. Everyday humdrum business seems to shove itself into the forefront rather quickly. So that's my quest. To find what makes me come alive- and do it. Simple enough.
Just our of curiosity: What drives you? What makes YOU come alive? Post your bliss as a comment or email me email@example.com (A dear friend of mine actually asked Sean this the first time she met him to see if he could pass the test and marry me) He passed. His answer at the time--Nature. Wonder if it has changed. Passions can do that you know, change. That's why we have to check in with ourselves now and again.
