Are you living a life of passion? » Alex Beadon

There’s this question I love to ask people: if you could describe yourself in three words, which three words would they be? 

I know, I know – it’s an intense question. And also nearly impossible to answer. I mean, can anyone really describe themselves in only three words? Talk about limitations!

But … I’ve gotta say, it’s always so interesting to hear which words people choose for themselves.

My three words have always been … passionate, creative, and inspiring.

So when I stumbled upon this article called “Lady Gaga and the Life of Passion” I was intrigued. Even more so, was that within this article, I found descriptions of myself, “the passionate person”.

Since so many of you reading this blog are passion-based people, too, I thought I’d share with you my favorite parts:

“I suppose that I didn’t know what I would become, but I always wanted to be extremely brave and I wanted to be a constant reminder to the universe of what passion looks like. What it sounds like. What it feels like.” 

– Lady Gaga 

“People with passion have the courage to be themselves with abandon. We all care what others think about us. People with passion are just less willing to be ruled by the tyranny of public opinion.”
– David Brooks

“Passionate people often discover themselves through play.”
– David Brooks

“As the saying goes, they somehow get on the other side of fear. They get beyond that fog that is scary to approach. Once through it they have more freedom to navigate. They opt out of things that are repetitive, routine and deadening. There’s even sometimes a certain recklessness there, a willingness to throw their imperfect selves out into public view while not really thinking beforehand how people might react.”
– David Brooks 

And so, today I am incredibly proud to be passionate, and I hope you are too.

 

The article referred to in this post was called “Lady Gaga and the Life of Passion” by David Brooks.
