Exuberance is Passion

A red rose always reminds me of Passion.
Yesterday my neighbor received a gorgeous bouquet of red roses from someone special.
Do you suppose it was to say "I Love You"?

As I have journeyed with PASSION this year I have picked up random thoughts about it.
I have tucked these thoughts into my heart with a smile.
I have told myself, "It's OK Darling, Get back up and Dance" when I have needed the words.
I have realized that Passion is another form of JOY, my word from two years ago.
I have learned that Passion is to run with abandon and pure pleasure, complete focus, and exuberance.
Exuberance has stuck in my head and clearly explained this word, PASSION, to me.

Passion, from Wikipedia/Dictionary:  emotion: joy, sorrow, exuberance, raw, hate, hope, faith, love
The suffering of Jesus Christ
The musical.

I found this page and the Holstee Manifesto:
 Live your Dream, Share your Passion.  LIFE IS SHORT. 

For me what I am learning with the word PASSION is to:  
Connect with People, Create, Laugh, Dance, and live a life of exuberance.
Not a bad way to live, but a very good way.

I hope today you are celebrating life with exuberance.

Had never thought of passion and joy together, but I agree with what you had to say about the two! (And said so well!) And as far as your neighbor's bouquet ... well, it certainly was saying SOMETHING quite positive!
