What is your PASSION?!

What is your Passion?! Well, for your sake, I hope you could answer this question quickly. I am reading a book right now & one of the characters loves to meet people with a passion & let them talk about it. She said that it didn't matter how boring the subject was because if a person is busy talking about their passion then the happiness rolls off of them & it is contagious and it is fun to see what people get excited about. WHY DID THIS STRIKE ME SO HARD?! I thought to myself, what is my passion? What would people see my face light up about when I talk about it? ...and more importantly...
WHAT makes me HAPPY?... and why am I not spending more time doing it?!
Well, I made a big long list & I got it sorted out into 2 categories.
Things I like to do: Hiking, skiing, friend time, family time, games, cooking, scrapbooking, & nightly walks
Then these are the things that I get excited about if I could go out & do them right now:
1-Decorating (mainly for any party or holiday)
2-Romantic gestures (notes, surprises, massages, etc.)
3-Taking pictures
4-Shopping for new clothes
BUT, which one is my passion?! I've decided that I have so many things I like to do that I spend too much time trying to do them all & they all seem to drown each other out. My goal now is to spend a lot of time doing the things I love & see if any of them can turn into a passion! NOW, what I really want to hear is... WHAT IS YOUR PASSION?
And then I want to make sure & put a prego update: The prego party is OVER! The first 6 months was a breeze, then I've been tired & so sick with indigestion that I can hardly get things done despite trying to repaint my entire house (still happening). Yuck! I'm almost done with month 7 so hopefully it starts to look uphill! Plus I've doubled in size, but I don't have a picture because Vic BROKE MY CAMERA :( So hopefully I'll get a new one soon!

Oh I'm so sorry--heartburn is really the worst! Talk to your doctor--there are over the counter meds that you can take (and finally sleep again...) Sorry about the camera too.

I know how pregnancy can do that to you. Spekaing of passions though, I sent Victor an invite to give you on facebook to become an author on my cooking blog if you are interested. Let me know or you could send me your e-mail (via inbox of facebook-add me as a friend :)and I could send you the invite and letter explaining what we are doing in the blog and the answers to those camera questions you had. I have a link and all kinds of stuff if you want it. Wow, I just wrote a lot just now.

Hmm...I think my passion probably changes all the time. One thing I do LOVE to do is plan and look forward to a vacation. I could do that all the time, but the problem is, I rarely get to actually GO on the vacation! (: One day, you and Vic have to go to Europe with us and show us the ins and outs--maybe when we are old and rich?
Oh, and ask your doc about taking Nexium. Nexium was a dream come true for me during my pregnancies. Over-the-counter antacids wouldn't even touch the heartburn/indigestion.

Good post girl. I feel like I put too much energy into way to many things as well. This is a wonderful reminder to slow down and focus on the one I love the most.
Sorry you haven't been feeling well. Usually that happens in the first few months. Hopefully it doesn't last long. I can't believe you are 7 months already!!! SAAWWEEEEET!!!
