Ripples v9.31: Great Passions!
7/30/07: a free weekly splash from Paul & The Ripples Project
Only passions, great passions, can elevate the soul to great things.
-Denis Diderot, submitted by Eliza C, Crivitz WI
If there is no passion in your life,
then have you really lived?
Find your passion,
whatever it may be.
Become it, and let it become you
and you will find great things happen
FOR you, TO you, and BECA– USE of you.
-T. Alan Armstrong, submitted by Emily S., Eau Claire WI (via Facebook!)
This week I enjoyed a quick trip to Des Moines to spend a day with some corporate trainers from around the state of Iowa. We spent some time exploring how to pursue our passions so I thought it would be a great week to encourage us ALL to spend some time and energy pursuing our passions.
Whether it is in your job, with your family/friends, on a service project, or around a hobby/leisure activity that you enjoy, I hope you can spend a few more minutes this week enjoying your GREAT PASSIONS! I am indescribably lucky that one of my greatest passions is this “electronic postcard” that you are now reading, and I thank you for taking 60 seconds each Monday to pause and ponder. I hope you know that my passion is fed every time you pass Ripples on to a friend/colleague, submit a quote, and especially when you act on an idea that came to you after reading an issue.
Enjoy Ripples, enjoy your great passions, and please make sure you ENJOY TODAY!
