"There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living."
I think that in theory, we would all agree with this. We would all agree that our passion shouldn't be wasted, that we should follow after our dreams, that we should never settle for a life less than the one we want. If asked, we would probably all say that we were working towards this sort of life, that we were one day going to live in such a way that every day was filled with passion as we lived out our dreams.
That's a fine and dandy answer, but it's not real. It's a front, maybe a coping mechanism to get through the now. Because it's easier to put up with passionless days if you promise yourself that one day, eventually, you will live a life full of all you are capable of.
But today is someday. Yesterday was someday. Last week was someday.
It's a Tuesday, and for all you know, it's the most important Tuesday of your life. Right now, it's the only day that matters, because it's the only day you have. And if you spend it mindlessly promising yourself that one day you'll have a life full of passion, instead of doing something passionate, or something that gets you closer to having a life full of things you're passionate about, then you're already settling.
It's Tuesday, and it's the only Tuesday that matters. What are you going to do with it?
