What makes you feel alive? What inspires you and keeps you motivated? What or who moves you to experience emotions of love, happiness and excitement? What are your interests that brings about contentment, fullness and positive enthusiasm? These are just a few of the many passions that we have in our lives. Passions that keeps us going day after day. Passions that make us appreciate our humanity. Passions that celebrates the blessings we have everyday and help us find our bliss.
I am passionate about a lot things but these are my top favorites.
I am passionate about…
My family, traveling and discovering places, making adventures, loving more, being one and close to Nature, to capture beautiful moments in photographs and making lasting memories, finding happiness and peace, create lasting friendship, making a difference in my work and community, bringing comfort and joy to others, to write with freedom, to grow in my faith and overcome my personal darkness, to find true “meaning and purpose” in this life.
My world revolves around my family. My wife who stands by me in all my life’s journey and my son who showed me the joys and excitement of everyday’s adventure. Then I have my parents who continues to support and nurture my dreams wherever those dreams would take me. Not to be out done are my five sisters who despite of being separated from me by physical distance continues to cherish that bond of love, respect and friendship we all knew since childhood. Every time we see each other, it’s like going back in time, of being young without worries in the world. A time of pure happiness. A time where we laughed and had fun to our heart’s content.
There is no limit to having more family members that matters. For the past few weeks, I am blessed to have my in-laws in my home together with my wife’s brother. For the first time, my son had a sleep over with his grand parents and my wife’s brother. I smiled when I saw him place his sleeping bag between the bed of his grandparents and his uncle. I added more pillows making sure he was comfortable. Before leaving the room, I looked at him and I saw a twinkle of joy in his eyes.
Today, my wife helped her parents pack some of their stuff. In less than a week, they will head back home. Much as we are happy that we had a borrowed time with them, it saddens us that once again we will feel a void that only a family’s love can ever fill.
