Postaday has generated a renewed motivation to sit down everyday and commit to a post.
I wish you good people at WordPress could create something as effective for my exercise habits.
Today I’ve been thinking about passion.
This is Bekka who loves her horses and plays with them everyday. I thought when she started horseback riding lessons she’d drop the play ones, but her favorite gift is always another horse,
or more of the paraphernalia that goes with the horses or the huge wooden barn that takes up about 4 square feet of the bedroom.
In my experience kids are fickle about toys.
They beg and whine until they get the new ‘object of their affection’ and the next day you find it under their pj’s on the floor or in the back of the closet in the toy graveyard.
But, even kids can demonstrate remarkable dedication when something taps into their passion.
I’ve been in a migrating pattern throughout the Social Network.
and back to WordPress
I like the visual components of Pinterest and tumblr, but this week of daily posting has shown me that I need to create rather than curate.
The satisfaction comes from tapping into my passion for communication.
Sharing what moves me to laughter and tears, what inspires my compassion and dedication, and ideas I might have to, in some small way, make the world a better place.
And then, discovering what you—my fellow bloggers—are passionate about.
What moves you, challenges you, or makes you want to tear your hair out and run from the building screaming.
So keep telling me your stories and sharing your photographs.
Share your passion. Share yourself.
That’s what connects the WordPress community, not simply what we ‘like’,
but what we are like.
