Do you have a passion for life?  Do you even know what it means to feel passionate about life?

Often we are so stuck in our drab, day-to-day world of survival that we forget those things that make us feel truly alive.  What makes you feel alive?  Can you take a few minutes out of your busy day to think about it? 

It all comes down to what brings you joy.  Can you remember the last time you felt joy?  If not, it’s time to seriously make over your life. 

Let’s take a step back.  So, you haven’t felt joy for a while, but when was the last time you felt enthusiasm?  Still having a hard time remembering? 

WAKE UP!!  Yes, you heard me.  You are sleepwalking through life.  That’s not how it was meant to be lived.  Wake up and smell every rose, dandelion, and whiff of car exhaust that enters your nostrils.  Life is not just about tasting the good things in life.  It’s about EXPERIENCING life.  That includes the good, the bad, and the ugly.  To feel truly passionate about life, you have to be and feel alive.

You have to tell yourself the truth when something doesn’t feel good to you.  You can’t fool yourself, though you may be able to fool your friends and family for a while.  If you aren’t feeling any enthusiasm for your life, there is a reason.  It’s up to you to figure out the reason why.  No one else can tell you.  They may be able to point you in the right direction, but you may not be ready or willing to listen.

Once you have determined why you are feeling a lack of passion, you need to try to remember a time when you felt passionate about something–or someone.  There must have been a time, if only in the distant past, when you felt that spark of excitement for life.  Excitement is the first step towards passion.  You feel that tiny spark of excitement and nurture it into a roaring flame of passion. 

Once you start to feel the passion, find ways to keep it flowing to you.  When you feel like that, why would you want to go back to feeling only half-alive?  You won’t.  And your passion and zest for life will be contagious.  Those around you will see your spark and want to emulate you.  Before you know it, having a passion for life will be back in style.
