The Three Passions of My Life

What is passion? Passion is a strong amorous feeling or desire, such as love or hate. I have three passions, simple but strong in my life: a desire to imagine, the search for understanding, and family. Three passions that will carve the path I have walked and will continue to guide me on my life’s journey.

I hope that one day I can understand life and know why things happen the way certain things happen. Guidance can only be provided by others to a certain extent before ourselves must take over and complete our own journey. The journey I must travel I have yet to reveal or maybe I am already walking the path, it is my purpose here that sparks my fire.

My third and by far my strongest passion is family, and more specifically my mother. I have mentioned family my strongest passion because they bring me joy, a joy that I would sacrifice my life for an hour of this greatness.

When the divorce stuff was happening my father didn’t even really have a relationship with my brother...
