What am I most passionate about?

The word Passionate (from
[pash-uh-nit] –adjective
1.having, compelled by, or ruled by intense emotion or strong feeling; fervid: a passionate advocate of socialism.
2.easily aroused to or influenced by sexual desire; ardently sensual.
3.expressing, showing, or marked by intense or strong feeling; emotional: passionate language.
4.intense or vehement, as emotions or feelings: passionate grief.
5.easily moved to anger; quick-tempered; irascible.

Okay, so passionate. Well, which minute? My passions change depending on what is right in front of me.
Example -
One minute I am concerned about world hunger and how I can make a difference but then I get distracted by my lunch time.

Do our passions stay the same? There are so many things to learn about and to believe in and to take a stand do you decide? Or are we just automatically passionate about one thing? My sister is passionate about animals in a way that I could never learn to. I know after the 30 Hour Famine this week many of my students are determined to make a difference now that they know that they actually can. So will they remain passionate about eradicating world hunger?

Okay, but I get away from what I am passionate about.

I know that I am passionate about:
Living life to the fullest.
Listening for God's voice in the middle all the other voices.
Being real.
Communicating well so that I am really heard.
Helping others find themselves.
Making a difference in this world for good.
Learning from my own and others mistakes.
Making time to really see or hear another person's story.

I get passionate(or frustrated) when people misunderstand me or get confused by my actions - Good or bad. I don't like to be misunderstood.

I am passionate about letting my soul dance and rest...
