Does passion drive you?

I always am driven by passion.

Well, atleast I keep telling myself that. And the funny part is that I often fool myself to believing that! The problem with that is that you end up making presumptions and assumptions that whatever you are doing has some relation to the thing that you are passionate about.

Only when you sit (or stand) at the other corner of the room, and try to understand the situation from a different view point, you actually get to know whether it is true or not.

Of late I have been going through this emotional turmoil and feeling a lot of guilt in not being able to do the things that are driven by the passion in me.

I also realize that the time is short. and with the health issues increasing day by day, it sends me in a panic mode. Of not knowing what to do and how to do. 

At the end of the day, there is limit to things and there comes a time when you pause and face the other world that is not letting you do those things; directly and say STFU and let me do things that drive me. And that is where you make your decisions. The time when you decide that enough is enough and that something needs to be done. The time when you know that you just did not want to be another rat in the rat race and actually stood up some something that you so passionately believed in.

go for it.. you won't regret following your passion.Do it while you can, because there are many who want to but just cannot make that call- given the framework they operate in. Give this a read - http://shivam-khullar.blogspot.com/2011/03/about-free-will.html

Don't panic, and don't deny that you are not...i can feel it...
Continue doing what you have been, if that's not what your passion is about, then take a break, think and start again...it's never late :)
