OAC 267 Passion VS Obsession

I talk about this subject because I have re-kindled a passion of mine that is consuming my brain with creating and wanting to sacrifice other things to do it! Has this ever happened to you?  You love something so much you start forsaking...


I talk about this subject because I have re-kindled a passion of mine that is consuming my brain with creating and wanting to sacrifice other things to do it!

Has this ever happened to you?  You love something so much you start forsaking everything and everyone else for that activity? I think it happens to many of us and I talk today about finding a way to balance the passion so it does not become an obsession.

Why do I feel the need to talk about this today?  Because I have a grand daughter who's husband has a passion for fixing up his car, after work.  It's lonely when someone chooses their obsession over being with you.  I understand what she's going through.  I've been there and it is crushing.

My husband spent a short period of time obsessed over a new skill, but fortunately I was at a place in my life I understood, to a degree :-) and it all settled down when he got a job using that skill.  Sorta changed the dynamics on that bugger.

So I just share a couple stories on here that you might relate to.  I think obsession of someone's passion has touched many of us, if not being guilty ourselves.  It's a blessing and a curse to have a passion some times, so seeking a true balance is vitally important, I believe.

Please share this out someone may need to hear it.  And FYI I will be soon adding an option to get my show through FaceBook Messenger, if you'd prefer.  Sometimes emails take a back seat to quicker communication.  Different strokes for different folks!

Have an absolutely AWESOME day, my friends.

Passing On A Smile,
