Last Tuesday, I went to an inspiring dinner with experienced and budding entrepreneurs and the one topic that was repeatedly mentioned was finding our passions in life.  I’ve written about this topic several times (like here) on my blog.  It can be hard to remember what our passions are or even know what they are when we have jobs, bills, committments, families, friends and other life priorities.  Since that dinner, I’ve been reflecting on my life the last couple of years and if my decisions have been in line with my passions.  I would say it was 50/50.  We often times have to do things because we have to.  That’s life after all, there are obligations and expectations that we cannot run from.  This week, I made a list of all of my passions some of which are food, travel and photography.  As long as I do one thing a day towards one of them however small, I know I’m on the right track.  What are your passions in life?  I find it helps to sit alone somewhere you love, outside in nature and think about it for a while.  You will be surprised by how your mind will open up.  Try it this weekend!  These were the things I’ve been lovin’ this week.
