Rest Stop (Thursday) … passion, pass it on

I write this post as I listen to the sounds of passion!  It is the genuine and beautiful sound of passion longing for a response.  A passionate sound which lasts for hours.  The producer of the sound hopes to attract attention.

I cannot help but to eavesdrop on this yearly ritual hearkening the beginning of Spring; the passionate croaking of frogs in our pond.

Every Spring my evenings are filled with the passionate sounds of romance.  Referring to the sounds as “croaking” is an injustice not only to their melodious sound, but also to their intent.  But it is not the sound itself which impresses me, rather, it is the passion in the sound.  Hour-by-hour, evening-by-evening, for days and weeks they come to call their mate.  There is no concern of what others think as it is the frog’s sole intent to communicate passion.

Passion is most likely the strongest of our emotions, if it may be called an emotion at all since passion is more of an action.  Passion is the driving force behind what we do in response to a strongly held emotion.  As with my frogs, their passion for maintaining their species leads them to vocalize for hours, days and weeks.

What are you passionate about? What is holding us back from sharing our passion?  And when we do share our passions, what is that driving force giving us the courage to do so?

I don’t write my posts because I have all the answers, I write to ask the questions which will give me answers to improve my journey. I hope that when you read this post you will find your freedom to feel passion, and to find the strength and the courage to share it with everyone!!
