My passions were all gathered together like fingers that made a fist. Drive is considered aggression today; I knew it then as purpose.
Someone commented the other day that they were happy to know that my passion was helping women know their worth. I was thinking that, as parents of addicts, it’s easy for that role to take us over and become the central way we define ourselves. YUCK! So I have a question for you all:
WHAT ARE YOUR PASSIONS? Mine are (a) helping women know their worth and guiding them through times of life change and spiritual searching, (b) performing arts — both as audience and performer, (c) words and writing, (d) family and game nights! (In no particular order)
An Assignment: Please respond to this post and list some of your passions. Tell us about what you love to do — and then plan a time when you will do one of those things over the next week. How about that?? And please suggest this post to others. Let’s see how many of us we can get to walk on the plus side! THANKS — you are all terrific, loving, strong parents. And don’t you forget it!
