It's all about Passion

Waking up earlier than the lark this week.
Burning midnight oil.
Pouring over books whose pages have yellowed with time and neglect
Writing, rewriting.....

And all this without interuppting work and family.
Can't afford to. It's my "freetime" venture.
Because  all this effort is going towards my passion.
Teaching. Rather "Guest lecturing".

Realise how important it is to feed our passions.
Brings out the best in us, fuels fire and sparks off ideas we never imagined we could dream of.

Sometimes,  people like me let work take up so much time that we kill the passions that  drive us.
Making us unhappy, monotonic, mechanical.

We complain about having no time.
We talk about time poor lives in meetings and breaks.

Yet,   it takes so little if we really put our mind and heart to it.
Just need  a strong dose of determination, a spoonful of planning and a sackful of hard work.

I have learnt so much in the last few days.
New examples, fresh insights, revamped theories... things long forgotten in the lapse of time.

Nothing comes easy.
More so, if we follow a passion that is not part of our regular work and life.

But at the end of the day, it is these passions that make us better individuals, make us complete.
Making us more productive, more enlightened.

And above all, keeping us very happy.
Because, with happiness,  comes health, comes success, comes relationships. Everything.

With this short rambling, I go back to my guest lecture prep and midnight oils.
Thanking God for finally making me wise enough to realise that  if we kill passion, a part of us die.
