Find Your Passion

Sometimes I feel a little overwhelmed with all the choices out there.

I want to compete. 

What do I sign up for? 
Obstacle course race. 
Trail race.
Road race.
Triathlon.  
CrossFit competition. 

Then which one? 
Fun. 
Competitive. 
Team. 
Individual. 
Short. 
Long. 
Near.
Far.

I want to eat healthy.

Which diet (as in lifestyle) do I follow?
Paleo
Atkins
South Beach
Ketogenic
Gluten Free

And those are just choices of the physical domain. 

To answer questions such as these, you have to move beyond the right now. Staying in the right now is good at times. 
But staying in the right now can lead to lethargy if your right now has you eyeballs deep in the mundane.
Shifting your focus to tomorrow and the week after and the coming months can shift your drive from satisfaction with the routine
to
discovery of your passion.

What brings you delight?
What makes your heart go pitter patter with joy?
What brings a smile to your face so big that it tickles your soul?

I'm afraid we may have lost it a bit. 
We've become captivated by glowing screens instead of the glow of the night sky.
Our inspiration comes from stories on the screen instead of stories of our own. 

Stop. Doing what fills your time.
Go. Do what fulfills your life.

Find your passion.
Be relentless in pursuing it.
