Day #100 Of 100 - Tiny Leaps Series - Passion Vs Mad Love

Day 100 of 100

WOW! This is it. This is the final day in the Tiny Leaps Series (goosebumps). Thank you very much for joining me on this adventure. Thank you for sharing the journey.

This final episode offers insight around the idea of PASSION and MAD LOVE.

I know I've witnessed many social media posts and people saying, 'Follow your passion and it will lead you to your purpose', and I'd like to add a few notions to ponder on around this concept.

So what's the difference?

Well we can have many passions. We can have many extra curricular activities that we really enjoy doing or participating in but have no real burning desire to turn into anything else.
There isn't anything wrong with you if you don't take your passion and turn it into a business. Passions are for FUN. You're totally allowed to do things just for the fun of them.

Now MAD LOVE is something different. Mad love is something that moves you from deep within your core and there's a drive behind it that you will sustain regardless of how hard the slog gets. When you've got MAD LOVE for something or someone - nothing else matters because you love it. Yes, sometimes you'll hate it, you'll doubt yourself and you'll want to quit your business because it just feels too hard. Or in romantic relationships, you'll hate that they don't pick up their stuff off the floor or stack the dishwasher the way you like it - you might even want to strangle them (metaphoricaly of course) at times. 

But at the end of the day all is forgiven and the whispers of love in your heart bring you back to your desk to keep working on that project or into your partner's arms.

If you want to hear what inspired my own realisation between the two, take a listen to the episode.

Once again, thank you for walking along this journey with me. I hope you've taken something away for your own ride through life.
