"Dear Diary, My Passion is..."

By
Real Estate Agent with Savvy + Company Real Estate NC: 277197

Jennifer Monroe has PassionI want to touch things. To leave them beautifully different from before I was ever there. To give. To nurture.

Even as I am unaware, there is a stark difference between simply baking a cake, holding someone’s hand or just doing my job. When I do these things with passion, the difference is visible.  A shimmering radiance that sets the merely inanimate apart from those things I have nurtured and loved. Becoming more like me. Someplace my soul can remain long after I have departed. Some would call it making a difference, but I am selfish and I know I will take so much more with me.

And yet my passion is a two way street. I put things inside myself and become the repository of beautiful ideas, experiences and accomplishments. Relentlessly evolving as a composite of all those things melded seamlessly into my own interpretation, with so much Jennifer as their binding force. It will BE me. Some of it will be wrong, but so much more will be exactly right. And I can live with that and I can comfortably die with that too.

Passion drives me to care more. To live outside myself. And to live inside myself more richly. It pilots this odyssey we share along a common timeline, under the same sun - and yet it defines us as unique, as memorable and valuable. My passion underlies the hallmark of who I am and who I am meant to become. Even if I only make part of the journey for which I was intended, I will touch things. And because I did so passionately, I will remain.

Sheldon... I feel really good about that and I appreciate your comment :) I guess I thought I was being selfish more than anything.

Mirela! Thank you so much :) I may be many things and only sometimes does the optimist in me win out in this eternal struggle - but passionate I am. It's the one thing that always makes the difference for me.

Harrison... But it's true, right? I couldn't think of a better way to say it. I'm happy it resonated with you as well :)

Chris & Karen...  I suppose I speak for/ write for myself here, but passion does indeed provide a richer internal life for me and I probably gain the most when it comes right down to it. Thanks for weighing in!

I thought I had previously left a comment her but must have overlooked that. Funny, because I have read this post a half dozen times! It's remarkably well written and I love the way you say so much in a small space. I have never been able to do that! Reading this, I decided to write about passion and see what happens! Have good weekend, some chocolate and some time with your valentine be it in person, on line, on the phone and always in your heart!

Can't sleep, won't until you get here.

My dear, you are one hell of a writer.  It's like your soul grabs a pen and tells the entire world, "Shut the fuck up, I'm talking."

My Jason... Neither can I. You summed up my sleep deficiency perfectly. I sleep so well snuggled up in your arms, and when I get there I may not get out of bed for a week!!

You make me feel like I have something worthwhile to say. I am so thankful for your generous love and support. I am just so thankful for YOU.

Hi Jennifer...Shouldn't PROS be eliminated?

Just saying!

Writers like you make it hard for me to crawl out from the bottom of the pile.

Everything you write could be an entry in some creative writing contest.

Great post Jennifer, I too like to touch things and hope that when I do I have in some way made an impact on it. I think that most of what we touch in this life receive our mark and we are marked by it as well.

Jennifer, you have a gift for painting pictures with your words. I especially appreciated the way you've extended your creativity to your 'tags'. I have yet to finish reading all of the entries, but I'm guessing that you have many more fans than just your husband :-)
