Break your heart wide open.
Passion isn’t just about feeling good.
It’s about feeling everything that makes you human.
Passion delights in the riotous display of textures, colors, emotions: good, bad, happy, and sad.
It’s sparked by the world around you.
If you feel dull and gray, go outside.
Feel the earth beneath your feet.
Feel the cool, tingly air sweep across your skin.
Look up at the sky.
Listen to the silence.
It’s always full of life.
If you feel worn down by your daily routine, shake things up.
Wake up at the break of dawn.
Watch the sun rise. Cherish the precious, fleeting nature of life.
Let your mind roam free.
Revel in childlike wonder.
Passion is ageless.
It pierces through your layers of time-toughened armor and renews your brilliant, vital heart.
This is your journey, no one else’s.
Be human. Let go. Be alive.
