The Passions of the your mind! All you can be!

Hello and welcome.

Do you ever think about the nature of passion?  Your Passions! The passion and desire to be all that you can be. In the past I’ve written several posts and poems about passion.

Passion is tightly interwoven with all of our senses. So intimately are they connected that you can’t discuss the one without at least understanding the other.

When I first wrote about passion, last fall, I discussed the passion of both the writer and the reader. Later on I referred to “symbols” and used the heart (for example) while relating to love and the desire for one another. But passion is so much more vast in what it encompasses.

Our passions in life are often the fuel that give us the courage to go ahead, the motivation to do that which we so desire to do with our lives.

And I believe the power of passion is embedded within every single one of us (Both Men and Women)! It only needs your particular catalyst to be released.

Being passionate is really about your thoughts and senses overflowing with the strongest of your emotions – IN ANY AREA OF YOUR LIFE on ANY SUBJECT!

There are those who feel great passion inside, but releasing it is a whole ‘nuther thing. Embedded passion needs a spark to be ignited. But there’s a trick here, I think.

YOU are the one that will allow your passion’s release. For some this comes so easily, it seems … for others it is a struggle to open up your senses fully – breathe life in with big huge gulps – and embrace all that amazing potential life has waiting. Yours for the taking, just sitting there inside of you – waiting.

Passion is risky. You know that. There can be…consequences. But important things in life come with risks. Living life itself is a risk, but we can’t grow if we don’t challenge ourselves. (Are you listening to me “ladies”?)

This is the very nature of the fabric of life … living it. So what are you waiting for? What is your passion, because I believe that right now is your time! Go ahead release your passions – you can do this, your passion’s inside just waiting to be released:

Passion’s Release


I am here, inside waiting

Release me.

I can promise you emotions you have never felt.

The depth of my promise is as deep as

the deepest ocean,

as high as the mightiest mountain,

as wide and full,

as the canyons of dreams within your mind.

You will live as never before,

this I promise you.

Release me,

I will give you all you desire and so much

more, yours for the taking.

We will explore everything in life

and beyond –

the reaches of time and space

– infinity.

I can do this, I promise

Release me!

I will set fire to your dreams,

I will recreate ever wonder ever conceived

fashioned only for you.


Release me!

I am your reward for daring to live and love

and dance and sing and laugh!

Set me free – I am you, waiting to happen!


Have a great Thursday,

  1. Dear Penny, I wish it could be as simple as that. Sometimes you are bound by so many duties towards so many persons, near and dear ones that you forget about your passion and when you get time your body does not respond. But yes its never too late and one should always keep trying.
    Your post is very inspiring and the verse lovely.

    • Thank you Indira. Yes there are those times when it all seems like so very very much to accomplish, It isn’t simple – life, I mean. But getting up each day with determination and remembering what’s important to you – sometimes ‘that passion for life’ can make the difference, dear friend. Thank you for you lovely words! xo

  2. I think AnElephant said it best, your “love and advice is never limited or rationed”. Hope you know how much we love and appreciate all you do for us. 🙂

  3. AnElephantCant disagree with Penny
    Her love and advice is never limited or rationed
    Her poem is superb
    But leaves AnElephant slightly disturbed
    He thinks perhaps it is time to release some of his passion

  4. A great inspiration!
    But – I’m afraid of igniting a fire & am traumatized from when I went up in flames once upon a pregnant time.
    xo 🙂 🙂 xo

    • Lisa, how the heck are you? I certainly hope that your retreat has, in fact, been a great one for you, my soul mate. Thanks for taking the time to stop by. My turn to visit soon also! Keep taking care of you (p.s. – I did vote for your son’s musical group recently! – every little bit helps)! Lots of affection,

  5. Good morning (or evening) Penny. I think that too many people are scared to let their passion out as they are too scared of failure. “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.” Samuel Beckett.

    Or as Irene Cara sang in Fame “Take your passion, and make it happen”

    • Fear is a mind killer, no doubt about it. The thing is that far worse things can happen when you don’t take control of your own destiny! This I know to be true from my own experiences in life! xo

Thank you for your thoughts!
