passion |ˈpa sh ən|
an intense desire or enthusiasm for something
Passion is the fuel I use to drive my creations or innovative thoughts. Without passion, I am simply a ship with no compass or a wanderlust with no map. In often times I find myself lacking the confidence to truly commit to a creative project or thought and that's when I must remember, passion.
In my adolescence, I hold vivid memories of a boy who would act upon his bold imagination and seize the opportunity of expression. He'd paint stories on paper, write poems that sing, but most importantly, he dressed as if every day were a fashion show. Sure, the clothing might have not been designer, but tribal flame button-ups and band tee shirts were all he knew and would suffice for his yearning heart. Innocence and vulnerability surrounded him throughout school making it unchallenging for slurs, and hurtful words to cut deep. Confident in his ways, the boy held his head high and continued to persevere as an artist, poet and style icon. Funny where the time goes, that boy was me.
I remember it like yesterday, as if the self-assurance and passion still run threw my veins ever so swiftly and fervent. Cross roads taunt me and further challenges arise in present day, so it's important to remind oneself of worth and capability. I'm learning how to harness my confidence, load it with passion and firing at the goal once again. I apply this to my work, projects, relationships and of course, my blog. At the end of the day, I am happy with what I present my readers and hope it inspires you further. Once you have passion it's 'like electricity', it powers you to great lengths unleashing your wildest capabilities.
