Is dancing your passion?
Do you think your love of dancing qualifies as a passion? A true passion is not just a hobby. Its probably more like one step away from crazy! You do it because of the way it makes you feel. You are chasing that feeling right?
Sometimes your dancing doesn’t go just right and it frustrates you. But you don’t stop. You want that feeling. You can’t stop. You weather the storm because when its going well IT FEELS REALLY GOOD. You can’t get enough when your dancing is in that space.
Remember the first definition for passion in the dictionary. “A powerful or compelling emotion or feeling as love or hate.” Yes a true passion often has both love and hate. Along with the obsession comes a drive for perfection. That perfect feeling when the dance is going well. We are compelled by the dance to chase that feeling.
Embrace your passion
“It is obvious that we can no more explain a passion to a person who has never experienced it than we can explain light to the blind.” – T.S. Elliot
Not everyone will understand. Not everyone has the capacity to do what they love. Take it as a gift that you do. You are lucky. The desire to dance does not always last a lifetime. Embrace it as long as it speaks to you. Let it take over the wheel for a while and enjoy the ride!
