I love people with passion. People that sweat and bleed the love they have for something. The people whose confidence is unshakeable, unbreakable...because they believe. I love it. I admire it. I eat it up... To believe in something so deep that you have blinders on and don`t care about what society says, to me is a trait that is rare and to some, absolutely scary. I respect someone that is willing to go "All In" and play the game. "We cannot change the cards we are dealt with, just how we play the hand..." That`s living. Because for all of you that don`t realize it, tomorrow is promised for no one! So why not take a chance, follow your heart, follow your dreams, lay it all out there. How many people can say they are doing it!? Yeah, exactly. Be that person.

They say the reason we fall is so that we can learn how to pick ourselves back up (I stole that from the Dark Night)! Think about when you were a child and how many times mom had to apply some rubbing alcohol and a band-aid...but you always got back up and charged right back.

Just pick yourself back up if you fall, and if you are so passionate about something, you won't even think twice about it.

What's even better is when your passion is so strong that you accept that there will be tough times...but hey, you have to take the good with the bad. And nothing worth living for is ever that easy.

Thank you, Stephen! I'll be reviewing Stephen's book, Katka

,on June 26th so be sure to check it out!

So, tell me...what's your passion?

Mine, it's obvious: reading & books. Getting books out to underprivileged kids. Getting them excited about reading!

LIFE, and more:
