I have this problem.
Its a serious problem.
You have to listen very carefully.
This is a serious revelation.
Are you ready?
Yep. I have this emotion. Its called love.
I’m passionate about things that others are not.
I’m passionate about things that others are.
Here’s the bigger problem, though. We don’t share our passions. We share our talents, which often coincide, but we don’t share things we love.
Even sadder, is that when we do share something we love with those we love, often it is brushed aside and even laughed at.
Why is it that we don’t care about each other’s interests? Why is it that we often ignore each other when we are pouring out our hearts? I, more than anyone, am guilty of this.
Maybe you do listen to these loves. Maybe you learn to love them yourself. But I’m sure we have all expressed ourselves to others without receiving the reaction we were hoping for.
I don’t have the answer to this question, and I’m sure you don’t either. It could come from a general lack of patience that we all struggle with. It could come from our self-absorbed human nature.
So, to give you all a chance to express your love and your passions, I’m starting #OurSoulsOnFire. Here, I’m going to show you some of the things I love through words and pictures. This is what I challenge us to do :
- Pick one thing from my list or someone who has participated in the challenge’s list and listen to it, read it, watch it, whatever the case may be.
- If you feel led, share your opinion! Try to find something about it you’d like to share! If you didn’t like it at all, then at least you’ve experienced it.
- Now share your own love! Add it to the comment section of my blog, on my Instagram or Twitter, through your own social media or simply in your personal life! (I’d love to see your passions, so be sure to use the #OurSoulsOnFire!)
NUMBER ONE :
I like soccer. WHAT!? Yeah, I know, major reveal here. I could blab on and on and on about soccer, but for right now I’m just going to mention the major news in the soccer world right now, can we talk about the Crew’s new kits!?
NUMBER TWO : In case you haven’t picked up on this, I love photography. To see some of my work click here, or go to the “Photography” tab in the menu. 🙂
NUMBER THREE : I loveeeee All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. I don’t know what it is about that book, but you should read it ASAP!
NUMBER FOUR : I briefly mentioned this in chapter thirteen, but if you have not seen La La Land you need to get on that ASAP. It is so refreshingly anti-Hollywood, you will enjoy it. Promise. 😉
NUMBER FIVE : My favorite all-time movie is UP. Yes. I am 17 years old. Yes. I am a junior in high school. Thank you for asking. ❤
NUMBER SIX : MUSIC! You can click here to find 209 of my all-time favorite jams! I could list all of my favorites for you, but as of now my all-time favorite song is John Lennon’s “Imagine” covered by Pentatonix. You have got to watch the video. I promise it will move you to no end.
Quick personal update for those who care 😉 . At almost eight weeks post-op I’m finally back to school and weight bearing! I started physical therapy today as well! My short term goal is to get down to one crutch as fast as possible. I am so over crutches! 😛
Also, I need your help! For those of you have been following my blog for a while, you’ll notice I changed the look, but I’m not sold on it yet! I’m starting to think I liked the old theme better, so if you could let me know what you think that would be awesome!
I hope you all will participate in #OurSoulsOnFire! I’d love for you to tag me in your loves and passions. (Instagram : @soulonfire.blog // Twitter : @soulonfire_blog) I’m excited to expand my horizons and learn to enjoy some of the things you all love. Why would God give us opinions if He didn’t want us to share them!?
I hope you all are living life and loving people.
I cannot wait to see what your souls choose to share!
Lots and lots and lots of love,
