Passion

Do you have a passion in life? Passion, like most English words, has several meanings. When you are passionate about your sweetheart, it could mean ardent love. People can also be passionate about other things. In this sense, passion can mean boundless enthusiasm and that is the meaning for today.

What are some of the things you are passionate about? For me, my passions include family history, my sweetie and offspring, physical fitness, chess, improving my marriage, Toastmasters and computer programming. These are the things I like to do, enjoy doing and choose to do when I have some spare time. This blog is part of my passion in making my marriage great.

What does all this have to do with romance in your marriage? Just this: sometimes in marriage we abandon the things we are passionate (boundless enthusiam) about in favor of passion (ardent love). For a healthy relationship, each partner needs to develop their individual interests and talents. Also, each needs to wholeheartedly support the other. This does not mean you have to enjoy your sweetie's hobbies, just that you make sure they have your support in pursuing them.

Take time for your interests, passions and hobbies. Ensure that your sweetheart has time to develop personal interests and hobbies as well. Part of a healthy relationship is growth, as individuals as well as a couple. Change is an important part of growth, so remember to fall in love, over and over as you each improve your talents and pursue your passions.
