Happy Friday! Off to Ann Arbor today for my last round of plasmapheresis before we head off to the Sunshine State! Wooo-Hooo!!!
So I've been thinking about this post for a few days not sure how to get it down. You KNOW I'm preoccupied when I can't get words out! My mouth has been getting me into trouble my whole life! On my elementary school report cards, it was pretty much all the same: "Kerri is an excellent student...Now if we could just get her to stop talking so much and be a little less social!" Hehehhe. What can I say? I love words! The spoken word, the written word...love 'em all!
One thing I don't love...in fact, I would be go so far as to say I HATE it: People who won't make a decision. Not people who CAN'T, for whatever reason, but WON'T. And I'm not talking about the polite "I don't care where we go for dinner, where would YOU like to go?" Although this can get annoying if you have 2 parties involved who keep doing this....like the cartoon chipmunks, Chip and Dale. "After you!" "No, after you!" "I insist..." Blah blah blah.
So what I want to encourage you to do today is live with passion. It doesn't have to have anything to do with romantic love, either, before anyone goes THERE. There are over 200 synonymns for passion in my good ol' Synonym Finder. (No, I won't list them all!!) But think about it. If you lived with fierceness. If you made a decision with vivacity! If you woke up today and said, I am going to live with earnestness.
I'm saying, that even if your body doesn't cooperate, even if your finances won't facilitate, make up your mind to make a difference! All you need is your heart and your mind. Have enthusiasm!
I know there are a lot of people out there, myself included, who are going through not so great things right now. But DECIDE. Gather up every ounce of courage you have, and live with PASSION!
Think about what drives you. Concentrate on what moves you. Choose something positive to focus on. And LIVE!
