Tonight I sat and watched the film Serendipity  and in it was a line that struck a chord with me

You know the Greeks didn’t write obituaries. They only asked one question after a man died: “Did he have passion?”.

I know I have often been guilty of not living with passion.   I get caught up with worry and stress and passion is something that passes me by in those times.

I have had a lot of trials and tribulations over the last couple of years …. and although sometimes it felt that I was going to be just swept away, somehow I managed to keep my head above water.

I learned a few lessons during the bad times .. actually .. a lot of lessons .. some good, some bad .. but every lesson is good in one way or another.

I made a few deliberate changes to my life … other changes sort of found me … or I them … true serendipity.

I truly love being a Celebrant.   I wish I had done it years ago… but .. like a typical Capricorn .. I got there in the end! *smile*

I love the calmness and the peace I have found in my life … and maybe now I should start turning the passion I have for my work into a more personal type of passion.    

When I die .. I want no obituary.   I simply want to be remembered as someone who lived with passion.     

I love life .. maybe I should take a deep breath and let it love me.
