I just finished reading your titbit of useful information and felt, for the first time, like someone out there actually experience the drive that a person’s passion sets in motion.   Usually when I get talking about all the things that makes me happy to be alive and which drives me to aggressively and continuously push forward to an ultimately unknown destination, people react apprehensively and change the subject as quickly as they can just so to avoid being asked any type of contribute that might leave them open for discussion.  Because passionate people don’t generally take anything at face value and challenge the outspoken to prove their social standing and convictions as relevant, earned & trusted because ultimately we seek to learn every waking moment and choose our sources wisely.   There is equally for me nothing less depressing than seeing people settle for what they have because they are too afraid to take up the challenge of chasing after what they want. I personally think that the stubborn defiance of people not wanting to even explore the possibilities of a more fulfilling, passion driven life is plainly because they know  instinctively, that it will take effort, bring them face to face with adversary and ultimately require some form of sacrifice along the way.  All these elements are deadly intruders into their carefully constructed comfort zone.   That state of being / or illusion,  which they guard so fiercely, which they  will turn traitor for against a harmless fellow employee in order to protect it at the first glimpse of a possible threat. These people will all of a sudden abandon reason and act in the most extraordinary destructive ways, which present to them under any other circumstances and as actions taken by someone else would seem ludicrous even to them.  I have to acclimate that I find this ridiculous at best as it keeps good natured, generally warm hearted people in isolation from all that is unfamiliar just so they can hold on to the illusion they have created.   Passionate people adjust to change more easily because change brings uncharted opportunities we are anxious to explore.  Passionate people know what we know and we know what we don’t know.  We are the drivers of the human race because we don’t see any problem as being without a solution.   It was so refreshing to read from the pen of an unknown the same feelings I have been systematically filing away under the heading “Time to live and let live, you are only responsible for you”.   For this brief moment and as a  “ Que se ra se ra” to an extremely frustrating struggle with the general population around me, I took your bait and provided my 5 cents worth.   Going forward I have dispersed of most of my friends falling under the general population category and actively surround myself now with equally passionate people that not only have the energy to pursue their demanding lives but because they render me as worth the effort will stop from time to time and make sure I am still on my feet, right next to them.   So I have amended my list of personal passions to include the wellbeing of these selected people whom we don’t celebrate adequately and frequently enough.  With that said, please allow me this opportunity to thank you for your addition which may just change a life on its travels through Internet space and spark something with the dead lifeless general population in a similar fashion as it has stirred a buried passion of mine.   Regards Yvonne Lubbe Project & Account Manager Lila Incorporated
