Jumping on the "Show Your P..." bandwagon.



I love playing the piano...that's my passion. That's mine right there. Doesn't matter how much I'm down, as long as I get myself to sit there and play for 5 minutes, everything's OK again. What are your passions?

Fellow musican here. I love to sing, though it's getting tougher to keep my range the older I get.

My passion is Scouting!
I haven't really got a passion just for me. I enjoy reading sometimes, and I like sunny warm beaches, is that a passion?

As per wikipedia -

"Passion (from the Latin verb patī meaning to suffer) is a term applied to a very strong feeling about a person or thing. Passion is an intense emotion compelling feeling, enthusiasm, or desire for something."

I'd say those count as passions smile

On a sidenote - it is interesting how 'passion' comes from the Latin word that means 'to suffer'. Perhaps passions are things in life worth suffering for...

I like to sing though I wouldn't call it a passion I'm afraid there is not too much I am passionate about... maybe helping or encouraging

My daily passions are:

Drawing. I love to draw women's faces. Then I love to alter the image by making them prettier, younger, older, etc.

Comic Book Collecting. I used to collect before I bought the restaurant. I have over 10,000 books. Some dating to the 1930's to today. Some are worth a few dollars, others are worth more (Avengers #1, Adventure Comics from 1947, lots of golden age books). I started collecting when I was nine and put all my money into it. I thought when I get old at say, 40, I would sell them. Well I'm 40, now and I think I'll keep them a little while longer. LOL

My overall Passions are:

Reaffirming my faith in God, maintaining a great rapport and relationship with my immediate family and friends.

Proving People Wrong. I love being told that I can't do something. I work very hard and not only accomplishing something, but excelling at it beyond anyone's expectations. This happened recently when a newly opened competing restaurant tried to take some of my business and vowed "to close them down." I went into full marketing mode. They have since closed their dinner shift, and they keep changing their operating hours almost weekly. I love it! Don't mess with my cafe!

100% agreed.
guaranteed!

i love doing the "impossible".
people use this word incorrectly.
they usually mean "difficult" "expensive" "inconvenient" or "uncomfortable".

i am extremely careful about what i commit to.
but, once committed, i very rarely fail to fulfill my commitments.
my duties become my desires.

my word is my bond.
