Today's post is: What is your Number 1 Passion in Life?
Life is my passion! It doesn't matter what I do, I bring all my passion to it.
When I am at work, I am passionate about every one of my students and spend hours looking for ways to become a better teacher.
In the summer my passion is gardening. I am rewarded with beautiful flowers all summer and delicious food in the fall harvest.
I am passionate about learning. Going to school is one of my favorite things to do. I have spent most of my life in school. My goal is to finish my doctorate degree.
Writing is another passion. I have five blogs, so obviously I love writing. I spend hours writing and rewriting everything I write because I want my words to reflect exactly what I want to say. Writing helps me process my thoughts and emotions. Often I do not know what I think until I write about it. Once I get everything out on paper I can clarify my thoughts and share them with others.
I love reading. I used to read all of the time, but lately I've gotten distracted by other aspects of my life. When I heard of a reading challenge on Facebook, I decided it was just what I needed to start reading again. The Centurians of 2011 Challenge is to read 111 books in 2011. I blog a review of each book so I have
a very literal view of my progress. It also keeps me motivated to read because I am sharing it publicly with others. It's July 5 and I should be halfway to my goal, but I am only reading book 27 now. But that's okay because I love the journey and the books and the blogging.
