Bleeding Heart!

Do you know of the artist, Frida Kahlo. She painted self portraits with her heart exposed on her chest, always bleeding and she sported a unibrow. Ring a bell? She was an interesting, enormously talented character who was born with an abundant, overdose of passion. Poor, poor, Frida and what to do with it all. Her art, was the vehicle to express herself, lift her heavy heart and channel her passion to benefit herself and all of mankind.
"Passion is a gift from God, the peel that flavors our zest for life. We must possess it or find it  and express it somehow, so that we never look back and wish we had. Passion is not to be wasted in the disguise of drama. Drama is the result of misguided passion with no means of release."~Rosemary Aubut~
Weather it be art, photography, writing, gardening etc. etc., etc., find something you love for you and guide your passion in the name of enthusiasm. Don't waste an ounce of it and let it fester into fruitless drama. Enthusiasm, now when is the last time you felt that?

Pin It!

I feel enthusiastic everyday, but then I have my butterfly and caterpillar babies to make me excited about new beginnings.

I feel enthusiasm every time I pick up my camera and head out the door to greet nature! So glad I found something I LOVE!
