Recently I read that 84% of all Americans dislike their jobs or professions! I had to wonder about the dentist who drilled into my tooth last week (my 50th birthday present--a crown)! Does my dentist truly enjoy getting up each morning to drill teeth? Statistically speaking, 63% of us dread Monday mornings because we dislike our jobs so much. That's a lot of dissatisfied people! What would need to change for everyone to be passionate about what they were doing? I'm in the process of collecting "passionate" stories of lives changed by difficult circumstances. As strange as it may seem, those of us who have suffered the most have received an unexpected gift--living life passionately! It took a life-threatening illness for me to discover what I was truly passionate about, and it changed the way I would live the rest of my life. If you would like to share how you discovered your passion through difficult and painful circumstances, go to www.womensmentoringministries.com and write "passionately living" in the website feedback.
