This weekend, we spent the day at the Wings Over Waukegan Air Show and had a great time. Correction: I had a great time. My husband, per his Facebook post,had one of the top 10 days of his life thus far.
As you might guess, he has an absolute passion for aviation. I think it’s so cool to see his pure joy when he’s around planes and has the chance to fly. But I also can’t help but get a little jealous. I’m not sure there’s anything in the world that I LOVE as much as he loves this one thing (except my family, of course).
The good news is that I love a whole lot of things. I love to read, to travel, to spend time with friends, to scrapbook, to shop for home decorating stuff, to go on road trips…I just don’t have one major thing that I LOVE above all others.
But I also think I’m lucky that almost anything makes me happy, as long as I’m with my friends and family. I can have a great time doing just about anything. And I LOVE my life.
Thinking about that made me realize that I have a passion for my life and the people in it–and I want to be around them as long as humanly possible. So why not make my new passion my health and doing everything I can to live my life as long as possible?
I had a whole lot of fun this weekend–an air show, an apple orchard, a delicious lakeside Mexican restaurant–but it included a lot more food than it did exercise. I want my passion to be fitness and activity and good foods that will let me live as fully and as healthily as I can.
Is it possible to “force” a passion? I don’t know. But I’m going to try!
